I want to share something that I call the 5 Tissue Rule.
It is important to acknowledge when we are sad, angry or anxious. One of the best pieces of advice is to have a good cry. Sit down and let it all out.
Pull out one tissue after the next until you used five.
At this point, start to breathe deeply by inhaling for 5 seconds and exhaling for 5 seconds.
Complete a series of 5 sets. 5 by 5 by 5.
Visualize something that makes you smile and transition back to a calmer state of being.
This works for me and I hope it works for you as well. Feel free to share with your loved ones.
