I'm a 30 year old female responsible for a large group of people at work. I use talk down phrases on myself 3x/wk.
  1. Why are you THIS mad?
    46cfd25a c3b6 4fa3 b14d 07515beb133c
    I try to keep track of when I go from slightly annoyed to fuming. Sometimes its so fast and this phrase slows that down.
  2. Does this concern you?
    A6cec182 22d8 4d66 b798 2d2e2c6e1841
    Sometimes I get pissed over the way other people do things. Its really not my stress to have.
  3. Slow that breath
    2c74a5ca df33 4b81 b3fa e4f4dac5cd78
    Angry breathing is quick. Slowing it down helps you focus on your breathing relieving your mind.
  4. People will be stupid until the end of time.
    7539ecaa 95c1 4776 91d8 eb19224be1ad
    A reminder to chill.
  5. Do you wanna stay mad?
    F5f25070 2f00 4590 92c2 1215fb3d37d7
    🎶 Do you have to? Do you have to? Do you have to let it linger 🎶
  6. What's the worst that can happen?
    050d007b 450a 4be5 bb91 96d148f0dcc9
    And if that happens, you will be ok. (This 💯phrase courtesy of a former dynamo therapist)
  7. Handle it with grace
    37d05ba9 4817 4f10 a9af 6b8db417c278
    So often I look back and just wish I had handled things better. This phrase helps me get immediate perspective.
  8. Take a moment
    1a20fa65 be8d 4e10 b820 5dc193882d85
    The first 30 seconds are "Flames, on the side of my face." If I just hold my tongue until they are extinguished, I will thank myself later.
