panic/anxiety attack

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

These are the things that thrill me. Read a great sentence in a forum Michael is reading about wood stains and the person used the phrase “vitriolic tirade.” I thought it was excellent. Read the sentence aloud. Guessed the exact meaning of “vitriolic” to be “venomous.”   I was close and ended up clicking “vitriol,” (any of certain metallic sulfates of glassy appearance)  which then brought me to “blue vitriol.” And look at those images!!!

I often come back to this video. Mostly for the way he talks about how and why he makes work. “

A place that can be used to amplify the right moral choices. … I have made the studio in such a way that every where I turn I am reminded of why I started to do art in the first place. Why is it that I made this choice. … I have set up in my studio constant reminders of what is the right path. … I want the studio to be better than me so it can teach me how to live and how to be an artist.”  sections and particularly, “ 

Repeated for emphasis: 

I WANT THE STUDIO TO BE BETTER THAN ME SO IT CAN TEACH ME HOW TO LIVE AND HOW TO BE AN ARTIST

So good.
