This is a technique to calm your limbic system

Remember if you are calm – you think and work more effectively.

Remember the more lit up the yellow limbic system, the less your thinking brain (see the red arrow) is working.

Pay attention to fiddling, twitching, leg kicking – all a sign your limbic system if lit up.

Good Luck
