When I encounter stressful situations, my first thought is to remain calm. Getting worked up and frustrated only serves to increase negative stress. Negative stress is destructive, and I choose to remain on the positive side of life at all times.
When I am calm, I am able to reason more effectively. The ability to reason allows me to find a way out of the stressful situation.
I am able to tackle the stress and find a solution to the source of the challenge.
I realize that stressful situations help mold me into a stronger person. Rough times make me stronger, and that prepares me to handle tough situations in the future.
Today, my aim is to remain calm even when I feel like being reactive. I know that there is always an answer and I can only find it if I am mentally focused.
