Today's tip comes from a Houston electrical contractor. According to On-Time Electric, this is the right way to reset a circuit breaker: Firmly grasp and push the circuit breaker "handle" and push it to the off position. You'll see and feel a click. Next, firmly grasp it again and push it back to the on position. If your circuit trips again, it could be a sign of an overload.
