Slowly. In for a count of ten and then release. And repeat.
It always amazes me how well that trick works to calm and settle. Whether it is stress, anger or pain, just breathe. It won’t solve your problems, but it will make them a bit more bearable.
Pretty dresses make things more bearable, too. This striking leather mini from Apple May Designs for the September round of We < 3 Roleplay fits the bill perfectly. You have until the 30th to pick it up, so don’t panic.

That trick is not helping with my hiccups though!
Oh, but it can! Just take a VERY deep breath, making sure you are stretching your diaphragm and hold it as long as you can. Concentrate on feeling the stretch of your diaphragm. If necessary, repeat. It works every time!
