The more you practice something the easier it is to do it when the situation calls for it. This couldn’t be truer than when you’re getting bothered. Since your automatic response is to fight or flee, being able to quickly get back under control takes many reps. So, the more often you practice taking that deep breath and feeling as wonderful as you can, the more chance you give yourself when the pressure mounts. When we’re in our ‘war zones’, when we’re really bothered unless we’ve trained we’re probably not going to be our best. And since being in control might be the most valuable skill you can have, practicing until it becomes second nature is very productive activity.
