How To Keep Your Cool In Stressful Situations

Keeping your cool could make the difference in handling whatever the situation might ask of you in the BEST POSSIBLE WAY.

Who wouldn’t want that?

Yet people don’t even make the effort to try and maintain their temper. But what can you do to improve this aspect of your personality?

While there isn’t a “quick fix” but it’s instead a series of deep underlying problems that an individual might have developed through life… i can surely give you a few little pointers that might make a difference.

Let’s start!

See problems as something to solve.

Not as something that needs your emotional investment in. Exactly, you got it, taking emotions out of the equation will certainly make solving your problems a easier task.

Breathe.

Simple as that. Take deep breaths, as humans – that’s our personal way of blowing-literally, steam off. (aka negative energies) we’re like a locomotive.
Breathing will calm you almost instantly and will give you a clear mind. Couple this with daily meditation, and you’re gold.

Watch the situation from “up-high”

I usually use this method, i imagine myself being at the top of a super huge mountain, while looking down to the problems at hand.

In this way you can easily give your problems the right proportion, and you’ll see that it’s not something you should really worry about.

It also helps me understand better the situation i’m facing, since i can give the me “down there” effective advices on how to tackle it, in a calm and collected way.
