    Of course, it’s best to avoid stressful situations altogether: plan ahead, have a backup plan and know your limits. But when stress sneaks up on me, I stop and – – notice what I am feeling, identify what was the cause and focus on staying in the present moment and breathing very slowly. If possible share a laugh about what happened – – that helps diffuse everyone involved.
