We know it all too well, when we rush we usually make a mess of things.
The adrenaline kicks in and we start rushing about creating whirlwinds everywhere we go, usually causing havoc. Dropping keys, tripping, getting stuck in traffic, not getting your phone to work, forgetting important papers and all the other many, many "stupidities" we help create when we are rushing about.
Can we remain calm when that adrenaline kicks in? It is so powerful and can not be stopped right? Not true. It is challenging, yes but surly not impossible.
Remaining calm takes practice and dedication. On a daily basis we must practice patience and peacefulness in whatever form we enjoy. This could be yoga, meditation, as well as a walk, Tai chi, karate or even dancing. We all have exercises or practices we enjoy doing that help us practice calmness and patience. The more we practice the better we get at recognizing and pivoting when we see adrenaline start to kick in.
Having been a person who thought anxiety was a normal way to feel-yes, I felt that way all the time- believe me, it is something we all have the capability to do, it just takes our willingness and practice.
We do better and get more done when we are calm, so learn to practice your strength in remaining calm and be attentive to recognize the signs of anxiety so you can learn to tame and better control them.
As the saying goes, "keep calm and carry on."
Rushing only slows you down. Remember that.
