Becoming a Calmer Person

Top ten tips…

  1. Accept that things will not always go according to plan. Whenever you try anything it is inevitable that obstacles will get in your way. It’s how you deal with them that counts. Instead of referring to them as ‘problems’ think of them as challenges
  2. When in a stressful situation, breath slowly and deeply. You will be amazed at how calming this is
  3. If possible, leave the stressful situation for a while and allow your mind to calm. It will be far easier to find a solution after a time out. If you are talking about a subject that is stressing you out, change the subject for a while
  4. Exercise Regularly. Exercise can help burn off excess energy and frustration, generally leaving you far calmer
  5. Eat a healthy balanced diet. Many studies show children’s behaviour significantly improves when they are eating a healthy balanced diet. The same is true for adults
  6. Try meditation and self-hypnosis. Disciplines such as these can significantly help calm the mind. They also get our minds used to being calm, helping in both the short and long term
  7. Consider yourself a calm person. Often what we tell ourselves is what we become. Why not tell yourself you are a calm person? People really admire this quality, and it is something to be proud of
  8. Remember, most worries are almost never as bad as we first think. Don’t jump the gun and waste your energy stressing over nothing
  9. Can you control it? No point spending a lot of energy over something that you cannot control. Use that energy to develop a plan on how you will handle the situation
  10. Remember, a calm mind can resolve almost any situation, whereas a stressed mind often makes things worse. Take the easy route and remain calm
