There is a psychological SPACE that exists before a reaction to a stressful stimulus. Psychological self-care can help to expand this space.
Expanding this space provides room for more thought, clarity, composure, adaption, intention, empathy, listening, innovation, de-personalization, tolerance, and understanding.
