5 Tips for Keeping Calm

We all worry. We get upset, feel anxious and experience stress. It’s just a part of life. But that doesn’t mean that it has to be somethingthat we can’t control. Taking both preventative and in-the-moment steps can help us take the reins and stay calm, so we can take on whatever comes our way.

An article on Undo-Ordinary outlined five ways we can keep calm and remain in control of ourselves and our lives:

There is something precious and necessary about the Breathe function on the Apple Watch. Sometimes, you just need a reminder to fill your lungs up with all you can take and just let it go.

It’s a shame I have to remind adults to put proper fuel in their body. Think of it as driving a car. Your car moves with the help of gasoline. When the car runs out of gas it starts to malfunction and eventually stops performing until you fill it up again. Water is the gasoline and your body is the vehicle. Fuel up to keep up with whatever comes your way.

You want to perform better at your job and enjoy your life a bit more? Calm down. I know stress makes you do a lot of things you wouldn’t imagine but imagine yourself beyond the stress. You have the power to actually control your behavior and responses to situations that are out of your control. Cause guess what, all situations are out of your control.”

The article continued to suggest we alkaline our bodies and try a variety of essential oils at home to help find balance and harness our inner calm. Staying cool in stressful situations is possible, we just need to equip ourselves with the right tools and techniques. Then we can overcome, well, anything.
