How do you get a more complete perspective?

Did you know if you get enough distance you can see a full circle rainbow?

Just like a rainbow, a more complete perspective requires distance.
For everyday life challenges how do you create distance?

Here are some things that work for me.

Breathing practice
Talk it through with a trusted advisor

Give ‘it’ a pause
Sleep on it
Break the challenge down into the simpliest form

Revisit your intention
Go exercise and/or spend time in nature
Focus on something totally different for a while

What works for you?
