Tips for Keeping Calm

  1. Breathe deeply and stay in the present moment. Exhale slowly as you relax your body.
  2. Close your eyes and imagine your worries shrinking.
  3. Use this positive self-talk to increase emotional comfort:
  • “This feeling will pass.”
  •  “I will get through this.”
  • “I am safe right now.”
  • “I am feeling anxious but I have the power to make myself calm.”
