Take a breath
Practise what works

STOPP if you need to start again
Here's my take on the process:
Stop: When you notice you’re struggling and want to find a better way, stop and pause.
Take a breath: Connect with your breathing to slow down and balance your bodymind.
Observe: Become aware of your thoughts, feelings and body sensations. Be mindful.
Practise what works: Take pragmatic action that aligns with your values.
'The pessimist complains about the wind;
the optimist expects it to change;
the realist adjusts the sails.'
