Notice and label your thoughts
that make you smile are helpful too. For example, when I feel 'raging bull furious', I label it 'a bit peeved'. Or when I'm a nine out of 10 on the catastrophe scale, I label it 'a twinge of upset'. My colleague Dr Lucy Hone likes to say she's 'a tad vexed'. The gap between my feeling and the ridiculous label can make me grin. And then I've moved a little bit further from that experience.
