The fourth was the one that made it go viral on social media: "Breathe like a baby."
Confused as to what that actually means? "Focus on expanding your belly as you breathe, which can send more oxygen to the brain." Cool.
The final tip is probably good advice for us all: Limit your scrolling.
Right-wingers were quick to pounce:
\u201cOh dear. Admits Dems are socialists. Implies Latino people are dumb.\n\nSounds like Jen needs to follow the New York Times\u2019 advice - limit your scrolling and \u2018breathe like a baby\u2019.\u201d
\u201cStill laughing about New York Times telling Dems to breathe like babies to cope with the election. They know their target audience.\u201d

\u201c\u201cBreathe like a baby\u201d is my favorite. The Times is literally telling its readers, \u201cHey, after you\u2019ve spent four hours crying like a baby, why don\u2019t you try breathing like one?\u201d\u201d
One person suggested that breathing like a baby might cause readers to pass out into their ice-water baths:
\u201c\u201cEvidence-based\u2026 Breathe like a baby\u201d - actually, babies\u2019 respiration is 2-3 times higher than that of an adult, so you\u2019d get light-headed rather quickly. Maybe NYT wants their readership to pass out, right after they plunk their punim in ice water.\u201d
