    Breathe and communicate. It is easy to get caught up in the moment, so taking a second to breathe and ground yourself can help refresh your mindset. Communicate your feelings with a coworker! Removing a thought from your head by expressing it out loud helps decrease the intensity of those feelings and having someone listen to your concerns is very relieving. We want to be seen and heard the same way a child does!
    I also try my best to not bring stressors from work back home. Only take the happy moments home with you!
