I have been facing problems when my boss always speaks something silly and I am in that situation where I can't react.

Pain usually works. Make sure your boss won't see it:

  • Bite your tongue.
  • Bite the inside of your cheek.
  • Dig your thumbnail into the side of your finger.
  • Pinch yourself.

Open a little bit your mouth, Breathe through your nose and focus on your breathing. That should do the trick.


Think of something really serious. Try to focus your mind on work or something else.
