Bodhi's Take a Breath Philosophy is a quick 3 step process to making better decisions by combating knee-jerk decisions through informed, thoughtful actions.
1. LISTEN 2. THINK 3. ACT
Step 1: Listen - It's hard to hear when you're speaking. Listen and take in all of the information.
Step 2: Think - Use that brain, that's what it's there for. Think about what you've heard or seen. Does it make sense? Think through a logical, reasonable response. How will your reaction affect those around you? Will something positive come from what you are about to say or do? (This is where we let irrational and emotional reactions give way to thought and reason.)
Step 3: Act - Do or say something positive. Just because we don't like something doesn't mean it's wrong.
