Long before Bart Simpson on The Simpsons said, “Don’t have a cow!”I remember people using the phrase. I like it. It’s funny, low-stress and totally outrageous.
So, in a stressful situation, how do you keep from having a cow?
Step back and take just a moment to realize that your emotional mind may be overwhelming your logical mind.
Step back and ask yourself, “What is it about this situation that’s starting to make me angry?”
Step back and ask yourself if you can alter the situation.
Step back and ask yourself if you can avoid the situation.
I can promise you this, in stressful situations, if you let yourself get cranked up and let yourself react to the stress you might not have a cow but you can easily step in what a cow might leave.
Simply step back.
