Walk away and try to find a quiet spot
Take ten deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth
Ask yourself if the issue at hand is worth ruining your day
Smile- smiling instantly boosts your mood by releasing endorphins into your system
Walk back to your family with a clear head
By removing yourself from the tense situation, you will have time to calm your mind and re-focus on what is important.
We hope you enjoy the holiday! Happy 4th of July!
