Tools – Three-Second Scream.
Posted March 26, 2010on:
Take your right hand and cover your mouth. Take your left hand and place it firmly on top of your right hand. Count to three, inhale, and then scream at the top of your lungs. Notice what happens. You can barely hear yourself, right? So do it again. How does your throat feel? A little sore? That’s okay; it will pass. Did you laugh? Did you feel freer?
You can use this scream anywhere – at your desk or in front of company. Just bend your head when you do it and they’ll think you’re coughing. It gets rid of anger instantly, clears your throat, and takes any buildup away. If you are the type who wants to say deadly things and have come to realize how damaging this behaviour is, then the three-second scream will come in handy. If you’re a “shoot first” person, try “scream first” instead. It cuts down on casualties.
