Calming down when you get excited.
That might sound like a contradiction – calming down when excited!
Here I would like to talk about something that I call “The Burn Rate” in these conditions.
I find that even once a Retrainer is recovering, when something exciting or stimulating happens, they find that they can get tired. What’s happening here is that patients may have higher “burn rates”, i.e. when they are engaged in any activity, they burn more energy than a normal person might.
This may be because they are “on edge” whilst they are in that activity, or they are very attached to the results, or many other reasons.
To overcome this, practice being calmer and more centered even when good positive exciting things happen, or when you are engaged in an activity.
Practice breathing slowly and deeply as you engage in an activity, and your burn rate will reduce.
It will come with practice, as well as regular alternate nostril breathing and meditation twice a day.

Lots of love, Ashok
