In this article we will be looking at 8 ways to stay calm in any situation.
This information is crucial in the current era, as discussed below.
As I write this we are 2 years into the 'Covid Pandemic'.
In a recent interview with Joe Rogan, Dr Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA technology used in the vaccines, mentioned a phenomenon called 'Mass Formation Psychosis'.
Essentially, this means that the bulk of humanity has been brought under a kind of hypnosis where they are in a perpetual state of terror and cannot think rationally.
My aim in the article below is to help people who are suffering from this state of fear so they can get through these times and still stay relatively sane!
Before we delve into the article, if you wish to watch some videos on Mass Formation Psychosis, please check these out:

How To Stay Calm in Any Situation While Everyone Else is Losing Their Mind!
Have you ever noticed that some people stay calm under pressure much better than others?
Would you like to become one of those people?
Everyone has a different tolerance for stress, but with practice, you can become much more resilient in the face of adversity.
Dealing with stressful situations is part genetics and part skill.
You can’t do anything about your genes, but you can certainly enhance your skills!
Here are 8 techniques for you to learn to handle stress like a Zen monk.
1. Take care of your body
A calm mind is best supported by a healthy body. What does that mean?
- Eat well. In the current health crisis take plenty of vitamins, including Vitamins C and D.
- Sleep enough
- Get some exercise
- When your body is out of sorts, your mind isn’t at its most resilient.
A well-cared for body is the foundation of a durable and stress-resistant mind.
- Make one small improvement in your diet each week.
Experiment with your sleep schedule. Exercise daily in some meaningful way.
These three simple things matter more than you might realize.
Your breathing is the only aspect of your physiology that you can control easily.
There are plenty of breathing techniques you can try when you’re feeling stressed.
- Simply take long, slow, deep breaths.
- Inhale for four seconds, hold it for two seconds, and exhale for six seconds.
- Just breathe normally and keep your full attention on your breath.
Feel the air moving in and out of your body.
- There are numerous breathing techniques designed to help people relax.
Do some research and give several a try. See which style of breathing works best for you.
3. Stay Calm In Any Situation: Relax your body
When you feel stressed, there is a part of your body that is stressed, too.
Find that tense, uncomfortable part of your body and focus on relaxing it. In fact, do your best to relax your entire body.
4. Focus on the positive
There’s a positive aspect to any negative situation. Look for the positive and your brain will feel more at ease.
- Most of us focus on the negative and ignore the positive.
Do the opposite and feel the calm.
5. Focus on solutions
Focusing on problems is very stressful. Focusing on solutions is less stressful.
- If there’s a solution, there’s no reason to worry.
If there’s not a solution, there’s no value in worrying.
Basically, there’s never a benefit to worrying.
6. Stay Calm In Any Situation: Manage your thoughts
Do you imagine the worst when something negative happens?
Do you sit around and ruminate on your difficulties?
Managing your headspace is necessary to stay calm regardless of the situation.
- Consider if your thoughts are helping you to remain calm or creating stress.
- Most people imagine the worst and their brains and bodies respond accordingly.
- Try putting your attention on your breathing until you feel calmer and then begin looking for solutions.
7. Take cold showers or baths
Many people find that taking a cold shower or bath each day greatly diminishes their stress response.
If you can handle a 50-degree bath, you can handle just about anything.
8. Stay Calm In Any Situation: Take action
When you assertively deal with negative issues, you’re taking control.
Sitting around and thinking is a passive activity.
Only think long enough to find a good solution and then get busy implementing it.
- Activity helps to dissipate stress and build confidence and optimism.
Bonus Technique: Take up Meditation
Mediation is a great way to formalise some of the techniques mentioned above.
All meditation techniques involve specialised ways of breathing and managing your thoughts.
