Trust your Instincts and release your stress

  1. Trust your instincts. If your gut is saying, this is going downhill fast , be ready to do what you need to do to remain safe. Look for an exit strategy.
  2. One response does not fit all. You have to remain flexible. Although these guidelines have proven effective in de-escalating tough situations, every person is unique and may respond differently.
  3. Debrief. After the situation is over, talk to someone about what happened.
  4. Discharge your own stress . You had to put your natural reactions on hold for a while. Now is the time to discharge some of that pent up adrenaline. Go for a run.
