How To Stay Calm & Keep Your Cool In Tough Situations
It takes a disciplined energy to keep your calm when others around you are losing their cool.
You can be the voice of reassurance and ensure the chaos melts because of your composure.
Whether you need to be the voice of clear decision for your family, the medium of careful deliberation at work, these strategies will help you bring peace and stability in your world:
Calm Yourself First
When you train yourself to observe the triggers that cause you to lose your cool, it is easier to spot them and avoid them from escalating. Consequently, you can practice strategies that help you stay calm.
The next time you feel your anger rising, try one of these techniques: start counting backwards from a random six-digit number, force yourself to recite a memorized poem (quietly in your head), or in extreme situations, excuse yourself for a few minutes.
Be Assertive & Ask Questions
When others are losing their cool, maintain your composure but do not show fear. Sometimes, you will have to match their intensity and quickly change to a normal speaking volume.
Ask questions that force them to stop and think. This deflates the emotion of the moment and causes them to reconsider their outburst or anxiety.
Fix The Problem
Using humor is an effective strategy that brings things into perspective and forces people to consider the real problem. When you are focused on the goal without the emotions and anxiety, a win-win solution appears.
Be careful not to crack jokes when others are stressed. Humor works best when you are poking fun at the situation and yourself to make others laugh.
