Mindy Kaling talking about BJ Novak on The Howard Stern Show (15 September 2014)
- breath in for 4 seconds
- hold your breath for 7 seconds
- exhale breath for 8 seconds
repeat once or twice more.
This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.
Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Mindy Kaling on Howard Stern, 9.15.14
i think i might be done writing up my new resume?!? kids, don’t grow up just stay in school forever.
People are complaining that Listen wasn’t good because it “was all about Clara” and “Clara was made out to be the most important person in the universe again”, but you know what - she’s just an ordinary girl who did what she does best, and that’s helping children. Helping others. She saw a hurt, scared child and she didn’t just leave him behind like others might have; she comforted him and told him a bedtime story about how it’s okay to be scared. And that isn’t extraordinary or super special or whatever; it’s exactly what Clara Oswald would have done at that moment and that’s what makes it so wonderful. To say that “Oh, she’s just being made out to be the most important companion ever again!” undermines the beauty of her character and her qualities.
my fave thing is that clara realized what she did the moment she grabbed his ankle. and she knew she couldn’t take it back so she tried to make it right: by being the school teacher who genuinely loves kids and comforts them when they are afraid.
man, jenna coleman’s got acting skills bc her facial expressions explain so much without using dialogue or sounds.
if you’re not watching doctor who anymore, you need to start watching again bc today’s episode was amazing
Imagine Harry and Ginny a few months into their marriage and they’re so happy and in love and then one day they go shopping for food and household items and Harry just casually grabs certain items before Ginny hisses at him to "Check the prices, Harry, God! That bed set is far too expensive, we’re not going to have anything left to get the food with!" And Harry starts to laugh and say "We don’t have to worry about -" and then he stops and he and Ginny look at each other. And Harry realizes that she’s grown up having to measure out all her money and decide what she can and cannot have for a certain week or month or year. And Ginny realizes that she is actually no longer obligated to worry about money ever again.
Imagine Harry and Ginny eating dinner together and Ginny’s telling him about certain meals her mum made and teasing him about how he wolfs everything down and "Honestly Harry, you’re worse than Ron!" and Harry retorts laughingly "well old habits die hard, I had to fight Dudley for meals all the time, you at least knew you were going to eat every day!" And Ginny’s grin starts to fade and she asks "You…you didn’t get to eat everyday?" And Harry realizes what he said and he changes the subject quickly and Ginny looks at the plates in front of him and resists the urge to pile on some more potatoes. And the next day Vernon Dursley’s car is egged.
Imagine Harry and Ginny both suffering from night terrors and PTSD and agreeing that maybe going to that therapist Hermione recommended isn’t such a bad idea, and that’s how Thursday night became Therapy Night when they go out to dinner or to the pub after each session and agree that they need to talk to some Healers about introducing these sessions since therapy is still widely seen as muggle nonsense in the wizarding world.
And Ginny murmurs over her fire whiskey that sometimes she can still hear Tom Riddle murmuring in her ear, and Harry whispers that he dreams about running after his mother and father and Sirius and Remus as they disappear behind the Veil in the Department of Mysteries and he doesn’t know if he wakes from terror or regret about not making it through. And they go back home and hold each other closer that night and both wake up with raging hangovers.
