    Dr. Nina Radcliff, “Keep Calm and Carry On.”

    A new study published in European Heart Journal found that having an episode of intense anger may be associated with an 8.5 times greater risk of having a heart attack for two hours after! And in those with anxiety, it increased to 9.5 times greater risk. Let’s take a look at why we should take to heart the advice “Keep Calm and Carry On.”

    One officer who went through the three-day program called it unrealistic and “silly.” He said at one point they were given breathing exercises to learn how to calm down in a hostile situation. They said if you find yourself in a situation that’s getting heated, take a step back, close your eyes and take a deep breath,” he told the Post. “That’s pretty funny — that I would close my eyes in a tense situation.”

    Sounds like another version of the old sensitivity training we received 3 days a worth wow. I am sure the good doctor never had any body try to do her bodily harm.

    I don't think she would advocate for doing this in a tense, possibly life-threatening situation, but rather in a "I can't believe that reckless man just cut me off" situation, as the article says.

    Closing your eyes and taking a deep breath while you're driving might not be the best idea either.

    I suppose if you're the sort who blows his or her stack often, you might want to carry around a tin of 350 mg aspirin. If you're pinging, it might behoove you to pop one in your mouth and start chewing.
