“When something disturbs or distracts you from what you would rather be doing. Instead of getting lost in worry or anger: Close your eyes for a moment, take two long breaths, and notice what is there, or whatever comes along with the sound. Simply breathe in and notice how you are responding to whatever is there for you. Notice any thoughts or patterns of thought passing through your mind. Notice if your breathing is getting faster or slower or if there is a silence between the breaths. Take a last, deep breath and return your attention to the world around you. Notice how you feel now.” Ira Rabois Look at his website for more practices in his book “Compassionate Critical Thinking”
