  1. Every day, acknowledge that you will inevitably feel tension and stress
  2. The idea isn’t that you will live within the fight and flight mindset
  3. No, the idea is that you will recognize when you enter it, when you begin to grow tight and angry and ready to run or hit something
  4. Then, become conscious of the stress, tension, and pain in your body
  5. Focus in on where in your body it resides, or what thoughts you were having when you begin to tighten up
  6. Then, consciously relax those parts of your self, until you began to feel yourself become more “at ease”
  7. Breathe in and out slowly, remembering that:
  8. You are just like everyone else. You were born, you will live, and then you will die. You do not want the middle part to be spent in a fight and flight mode.
