Título.

Con torpeza dio su primer paso. Aún le costaba mantener el equilibrio por sí mismo. Tan solo una decena de kilos sostenidos por una estructura de piel y huesos a medio crecer. Era muy pequeño y siendo yo mayor, habiendo visto de todo en la vida, todavía me fascinaba ver cómo mi nieto se  levantaba por primera vez y echaba a andar, intentando no perder el equilibrio, demostrando gran autonomía y, sobre todo, a pesar de ser tan joven, demostrando de buena gana que sin esfuerzo no se consigue…

7/11 breathing. A skill to use for anxiety. It’s recommended to do it for 10-15 minutes. Like any other skill it does require a lot of practice. I advice that you practice it when you are feeling calm so you are ready in a time of need. If you lose count, which is easily done, simply start again until you do 15 minutes. It will also help with distraction even if you don’t get it right the first hundred times.

Breathing out longer than you breathe in actually activates your parasympathetic nervous system!
Anxiety is your sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) setting off all the alarms, while breathing like this will set the parasympathetic system (“rest and digest”) into action shutting off the alarms and settling your nerves.
Other things that help: laughing, checking out what’s going on around you (moving head and eyes to orient to your surroundings), getting curious about something.
Take care, be safe.

Please use this, guys, it can really help calm you while being triggered and when you’re in a stressful environment.
