Try: Cg should try to work on areas of stress that can be changed and find ways to deal less stressfully to those that can’t be changed even though cg cannot control a stressful situation they can control the way they react to it calm down physically – remove yourself both physically and emotionally from a stressful situation even if it is just for a short period of time count to 10 and take deep breaths go to another room and put some soothing music on make your thoughts positive rather than negative don’t dwell on the things that have gone wrong with the day point out the things that have gone right give yourself permission to feel sorry for yourself but set a time limit of two or three minutes
