I’m happy to share with you that I’ve been on top of my game or better said: developing my game and feeling confident!
My recently discovered weapon is THE MORNING MIRACLE ROUTINE!
Let me know if you want more on this subject and I’ll write about this soon.
But today, for a change, I wasn’t feeling OK… and I found myself nervous about a lot going on personally and professionally. So I guess it’s more productive to write about
3 QUICK WAYS TO CALM DOWN WHEN YOU’RE ‘LOSING IT’
1. Take Deep Breaths
There is a direct connection between our emotional state and breathing. The best way to bring your heart rate down and to regain your cool is to change your breathing.
Take a slow, deep breath in, filling your lungs with air and expanding your diaphragm. Hold your breath and then slowly release the air through your mouth. Repeat.
2. Reduce the Multi-tasking
When your mind anxiously jumps from one thought to another, trying to focus on and analyze several things all at once, make yourself stop and do one small easy task to feel that you can make it! This will signal your mind that you’re in control and that you’re accomplishing the desired outcomes and it will bring up your power to focus on one specific task at a time on the right direction! Listening to classical music also works with me!
3. Change your surroundings
Go outside for a few minutes and enjoy the sunshine or observe nature! To stop staring at your computer and to look at something you like like a funny photo or a picture of your family will also help to calm down and gain perspective.
