If you’re going to argue: acknowledge the other person’s perspectives and think before you speak. If you are going to run: make it ‘measured flight’, say ‘I’m off to clear my head’ and go for a walk and or do some breathing exercises.

“Don’t dwell on arguments, and forget any illusions of perfection, peace and harmony. Just live in the moment. But if you are feeling hurt do not ignore it. Acknowledge your feelings and then let them out in a controlled way, write notes, scream on a walk, listen to music turned up loud. Express the feeling, don’t suppress it.” If it’s all going off and you’re at the heart of it, it’s probably easier to turn to your breath (that’s spelt B.R.E.A.T.H, not B.O.O.Z.E.).
