1) Forget Things You Can’t Fix Now
What’s the point of thinking about work when you are at home? Your family
deserves better attention. There’s nothing you’ll be able to do to gain
back the time you missed.
2) Live In the Now
This is by far one of the most important technique to achieve Zen Master-like calmness. Miraculous things can and will happen when you focus. Once you started doing this, you will become more focused in everything you do. After a while, you will see that you are no longer worrying
about what future will hold for you.
3) Learn To Let Go
Not all problems in your life need to be fixed. In the end, you can’t have everything. So let it go, stop trying to fix it. Minimize the damage and go on with your life.
4) Set A Limit Switch To All The Three Techniques
Take a piece of paper and a pen and write the three above techniques down.
Then write down the cases when the three techniques are no longer valid. Being calm is important. But not to the extent of losing your job, or
your family. Certain things do require urgency. But if you keep all four techniques in mind, you will remain calm even though the whole world is in chaos.
