As it comes closer to the end of the year, There is one trick that I have mastered and that is to take deep breaths and lots and lots of deep breaths. Why? Well, I am guessing I am not alone saying these things especially as it comes closer to Christmas. First of all, how about those Christmas parking spaces or lack of, the angry drivers, the frustrated people in the queues or should I state toe tapping, arms crossed, fuming, impatient tourists. Apart from the above, there is the erratic drivers, the P Platers that ride your backside and you keep glaring at them in the rear vision mirror daring them to HIT you so you can scream at them "it will cost you!! you baboon" and well I needed my car fixed anyhow from that trolley that wacked me last year.
My deep breaths have been mastered due to trying to calm myself down and think good things, rather than wishing I had telekinesis skills to fry that person that is peeving me off. It’s easy to take breathing for granted—that is until you feel short of it. Breathing is usually an unconscious, involuntary process. In moments of high stress—giving a presentation, having a difficult conversation, getting stuck in traffic when you’re late—you may notice your breath becomes shallow and erratic, your pulse spikes, or you may even feel dizzy. These symptoms of stress are part of a sympathetic nervous system response, also known as the fight-or-flight response, designed to help us.
In other words, inhaling and exhaling slowly and consciously may help reduce symptoms of stress across populations not only over the long-term but right away. In moments like missing an important phone call or getting into an argument with a partner, we can learn to self-soothe by practising deep breathing. Breathing usually happens naturally from birth, it makes sense that many of us were not taught how to breathe properly and/or forget to do it properly.
For now though as I am at work, trying to calm down from exploding from the sound of Christmas carols in my ears, as I practice my breathing and patience which today comes from blogging and once I have finished I can then focus on the other parts of my life like shoving the microphone down the neck of the Christmas Carollers, so I can get my end of year report finished..:D
