Blow out the candles.

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

No, it's not my birthday. Just a little trick I learned. I read an article about teaching one's kids to manage stress. One of the suggestions was to make pretend they are blowing out birthday candles. Just take a deep breath in, then blow it out. I have been using that trick when I feel my anxiety arise. When I feel depressed or anxious about my work and family problems, I just remind myself: blow out the candles, blow out the candles. The deep breathing helps me calm down. Worry is not going to solve my problems, but maintaining a level head will definitely help me get through these tribulations. I will overcome this. And when it's over, I will get a nice cake and blow out the candles in real life to celebrate.
