Take Deep Breaths

In the heat of the moment, it’s easy to overlook your breathing. But that kind of shallow breathing you do when you’re angry keeps you in fight-or-flight mode.

To combat this, try taking slow, controlled breaths you inhale from your belly rather than your chest. This allows your body to instantly calm itself.

  • Find a chair or place where you can comfortably sit, allowing your neck and shoulders to fully relax.
  • Breathe deeply through your nose, and pay attention to your tummy rising.
  • Exhale through your mouth.
  • Try doing this exercise 3 times a day for 5 to 10 minutes or as needed.
