How To: Regain Calm

October 23, 2018 No Comments

Ever found yourself in a situation where you can feel things escalating, and you don’t know what to do, so you freak out and panic? I have a few simple tips to avoid that exact situation.

REMOVE YOURSELF FROM THE SITUATION
When you start to feel that tightening in your chest, or your heartbeat rising, is when you need to remove yourself from whatever is happening. Get out of there! Staying and facing the situation when your anger or anxiety is rising is not the way to go. If there is another person involved, you can ask them to leave if you don’t want to or can’t.

Don’t be afraid to remove yourself from the situation.

DISTRACT YOURSELF
Distract yourself from what happened. Run a hot bath, drink some calming tea, binge watch your favourite TV show, listen to some music… Anything to get your mind off of your rising heartbeat and rapid breath. Dwelling on things will only make it worse – you need to totally get it off your mind, or else you’ll be stuck overthinking what happened.

THINK OF A PLAN
Once you have calmed down and are relaxed, think up a plan of action. If you were arguing with someone, what will you say to them? How will you bring it up or how will you approach the topic? Your mind, that was so jumbled before should be calm enough by now to decipher the mess that it was, into coherent thoughts. You need to be in control of your thoughts for you to discuss anything calmly. If you’re not calm, go back to step two.

TAKE ACTION
Go and discuss what happened, calmly. Taking that time away from the situation should have enabled you to think about what was going so wrong. If you still can’t resolve what happened, or if you start feeling anxious or angry again, start the process over. Keep restarting until your issue is resolved.

Take a deep breath and close your eyes.

You’re going to be okay.

  • I FOUND A BRALETTE THAT FITS!! Oh my goodness I am over the freaking MOON about this 💫 It’s literally impossible to find bralettes that fit bustier girls and that actually hold them up to a degree. I got this gem at @kmartaus for less than $15
  • You are no less valuable at a size 18 than a size 4 ❤️
  • No shame in looking a bit nerdy 🤓 I wear glasses and I’m proud
  • I went to the doctors before and noticed a few people making faces at my breasts. I’m not wearing a bra and it’s super obvious because of how my breasts hang. I decided to not let this effect me and I continued with my afternoon. If you see someone with no bra on, don’t judge them. Appreciate them. ALL BOOBS MATTER, NO MATTER THE SIZE OR SHAPE ❤️
  • I was debating whether to post this or not, but fuck it, I am definitely not perfect and the weather is super hot, so here you go 🔥
