Let’s be honest, the Presidential debates can bring MANY emotions. We have all felt some fear, some anger, and even some occasional excitement. Either way, we know that this most recent presidential debate is going to leave us all a little more worse for wear. 😉
Let’s get started with 5 Ways that will DEFINITELY help you prepare for this debate.
1. Practice Deep Breathing and Meditation
I know, I know, you do not want to meditate, but trust me you will feel better when you do. Try it with me, take a deep breath into your nose and let it out through your mouth.
Remember, do it on a count of three. Holding your breath for longer than a minute might have an opposite effect. 😉
2. Drink Water with Honey and Lemon
Come on, who doesn’t love some honey and lemon? Make sure that you allow your water to get a nice warm temperature, even get it nice and hot if you like. Then mix in some lovely amounts of honey and lemon. This combination is a SURE fire way to keep your irritation level to a minimum.
If you want to get fancy, grab some of your favorite tea and add in a small amount of honey or lemon. If you do this, you are definitely going to stay calm no matter what is happening on your television.
3. Move ALL of Your Money into GOLD
Unless you are Jed and the Clampetts, make sure that you move your money from the bank into gold.
4. Fasten Your TV So That It Can’t Be Thrown
Repeat after me: It’s BAD to throw your tv. That sounds pretty rough, huh? Well it’s the truth. Make sure that you tie down your TV with velcro, or one of those bungee cords. You can even use a good strong rope, just make sure that you google the right type of knot so that your TV doesn’t go flying midway through the debate.
Remember, no matter what state you are in, it is ALWAYS bad to throw your TV through the air.
