Pause…Breathe…Think… 1/27/20

I’m reading more books about grief and I’ve learned that grief can throw your brain into a fight/flight mode, which explains the overreacting I have been experiencing. One coping strategy that I read about is to “Pause, Breathe, and Think” to try to slow your response, calm yourself down, and hopefully engage your brain first. The challenge will be to apply this when my brain has already reacted and is sending messages that we are under attack.
