- Equip yourself with some basic home improvement tools: screwdrivers, a wrench, a power drill. Take pleasure in using them for straightforward household tasks such as hanging pictures or rewiring lamps. Don't be discouraged if you try and fail, and don't hesitate to enlist friends or expert help if you need to - you're bound to learn some new basic skills!
- Call a time-out whenever you sense your pulse or heartbeat is increasing. During a time-out, take slow, deep breaths and do whatever else helps you calm down. Replace thoughts that reinforce distress and arousal with distress-reducing thoughts.
- Speak and act with a pure mind. When you do, happiness follows.
