heartmath freeze frame

The Five Steps of "Freeze-Frame"
1. Recognize the stressful feeling and freeze-frame it. Take a time out.
2. Make a sincere effort to shift your focus away from the racing mind or disturbed emotions to the area around your heart. Pretend you're breathing through your heart to help focus your energy in this area. Keep your focus there for 10 seconds or more.
3. Recall a positive, fun feeling or time you've had in life and attempt to re-experience it.
4. Using your intuition, common sense and sincerity, ask your heart, "What would be a more efficient response to the situation, one that will minimize future stress?"
5. Listen to what your heart says in answer to your question. It's an effective way to put your reactive mind and emotions in check and an in-house source of common-sense solutions.
