  • Find something humorous to focus on
  • Take a deep breath

  • Introspection — Think about your day. Reflect — if you were controlled or uncontrolled. Try to improve each day.
  • Keep silent — This is probably hard for some, but try to fix a time of day for quiet reflection.
  • Don’t accept negative situations. Ignore them. Remember if you don’t accept another person’s negativity, it still belongs to them.
  • Have some EMPATHY — try to understand others’ perspectives and situations.
