Stop. Breathe. Think.

As they teach you when you learn to dive, in case of an incident.

Pretty sound advice for other situations too. Such as when you flare up, occupy too much space or get resentful of other people.

STOP – BREATHE – THINK – ACT

Acting to include not acting immediately, sorting out your emotions, learning to bow your head and to say later: “I’d like to circle back to <insert event>. I am sorry for <insert behaviour>.  Why I think I did that is <insert reason>. How can I do better next time?

How can you do better next time?
