2.3.1.2. Use emergency stress stoppers Emergency stress stoppers help you deal with stress on the spot. These can be extremely effective in the work environment when you’ve got a lot on your plate, your mind is racing and the stress is mounting. You may need different stress stoppers for different situations and sometimes it helps to combine them. Count to 10 before you speak. Take three to five deep breaths. Ask for time to handle a stressful situation, so you can accomplish it to your liking and on your terms. Go for a walk. Don’t be afraid to say, “I’m sorry,” if you make a mistake.

2.3.1.3. Inspiration makes you healthy And I have to work so hard at talking positively to myself. If I don't, it's just real hard to get through the day, and I'll get really down, and just want to cry. My whole body language changes. I get more slumped over.

Joyce Brothers Read more at: https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/topics/topic_positive.html Positive feelings come from being honest about yourself and accepting your personality, and physical characteristics, warts and all; and, from belonging to a family that accepts you without question.
