Have you read the book, The Five Love Languages? A psychologist recommended I read it in preparation for dating. One friend learned I read this book and exclaimed: ‘That book is the wedding gift I buy for everyone!’ It’s understandable because Dr Chapman teaches a simple, physical aspect to relationship – ‘love language’.

“…Expressing love in the right language. We tend to speak our own love language, to express love to others in a language that would make us feel loved. But if it is not his/her primary love language, it will not mean to them what it would mean to us.” Dr. Gary Chapman

What does this have to do with methods to ‘calm down’? Love needs ‘language’ to emphasize its relational, an expression, an action. Calm needs ‘down’ to emphasize the same. Mia Cinelli discovered pressure is one calming method that worked for her. Her idea is her unique calming language.  If that’s not the case for you, what are one or two healthy methods you may use to ‘calm down’?
