Count To 10

“When angry, count to 10 before you speak; if very angry – to a hundred”

Thomas Jefferson
Third President of the USA (from 1801 to 1809)

This is a campaign of  Rotary Club Plovdiv International. The purpose of this website is to raise awareness about anger occurrence, how to control it. The old “tested” technique for counting till 10 works for several reasons. On the one hand, it allows your brain to focus on the action of counting, not on the event that made you upset. On the other hand, when you combine counting with deep breathing (once or twice), the extra flow of oxygen to the brain allows you to think more clearly and focus on your situation and behaviour. .
