Take a few minutes to discard the the feeling in your body of carrying worries about the past and future.
Plant your feet on the ground, breathe deep and slow three times in and out, and feel yourself right here, where you are right now, with what is immediately around you. That's all you need to deal with in this moment.
You have this moment available to you to feel solid underfoot and to feel your body breathing. You're OK.
Do this as often as you want.

"A time of great stress, whether it’s good stress or bad stress, is not the time to set the expectation that you’re not only going to survive but also set a PR [personal record?] while you’re doing it. I forbid it; let this particular kind of self torture go." — Casey Johnston
