A punt in football is not merely a routine play; it’s a strategic maneuver that can tip the scales in a game by controlling field position and setting the stage for crucial defensive and offensive decisions. In a nutshell, the point is to get the ball and the other team away from your end zone so they cannot score points successfully. In our series Fear Factory, we have been looking at some real, helpful, and useful ways to keep fear, anxiety, and angst out of our lives. In some ways – we are trying to get it as far away from us as possible so it cannot hurt us. So today, we open up the Fear Factory again and discover how to Punt the BPV. If you can do this, fear is easier to manage. No kidding!
