In those moments where our emotions intensify, this simple practice teaches us to use our awareness of certain places--chest (C), arms (A), and legs (L), and then the mind (M)--to reconnect with a place of calm. By paying attention to these spaces, we have more power to control or reactions and make choices from a place of inner calm.
