Maintain Chi Pressure (Original Force) in the Tan Tein. When you are angry, and stressful you release Chi and delete the Original Chi, so just release a little and breathe in a little more into the Tan Tein to maintain balance and Chi Pressure (Internal Power). So when you become depleted stop your activity, and rebuild Chi Pressure by breathing into the Tan Tein which is the key to Internal Power & Strength.
