Next time you feel an unexplained urge to talk to someone, stop for a moment and check whether it’s in response to stress. If you determine that it is, then use this knowledge about yourself to make 3 choices:
- Choose who you talk to, with careful consideration
- Choose your words mindfully, so they becomes a constructive stress-relieving process, rather than a 'whine & complain' session.
- Choose to move on to something positive afterwards, even if it’s just having tea in a favorite cup, reading something funny, or buying a new cologne!
