Relax, relate release stress
I like to think of myself as a pretty laid-back, even-keeled person, but there are things that trigger a panic mode, no problem.
One of those things is driving. Sometimes I have to recognize the budding signs of road rage: white knuckles firmly clutching the steering wheel, eyes squinted into a furious glare at the driver who committed the transgression and PG-13 rated whispers escaping in bursts from clenched lips.
It’s at this moment that it helps to remind myself to breathe.
