It is very important to learn how to sail your ship through stormy waters. This means learning all the skills necessary to navigate your life in turbulent times. You must be aware and prepared at all times!
Emotional storm preparation includes learning how to manage your emotions and being self-aware. When a storm comes, you should know how to handle your feelings and respond appropriately.
Social storm preparation includes learning how to connect with people who are different than you. You should learn how to communicate with people in a way that is respectful and gets through to them.
Political storm preparation includes knowing what laws exist and how to apply them when needed. You must also keep up with current events so that you are ready for any sudden changes that may occur due to a storm.
Do not let fear take over your life
Many people let fear dictate their lives, but you need to make a strong effort to avoid this. Fear is a negative emotion that comes about from some danger or threat in your life.
When you have fears, you may avoid certain things or situations that might bring about happiness or pleasure in your life.
Fear can take the form of anxiety, worry, dread, and panic. If you are experiencing any of these emotions, then you are being dominated by fear.
You must learn to recognize the presence of fear and how it affects you. Once you can do this, it will be easier for you to overcome fear and allow happiness and joy into your life.
It takes a while to develop confidence and trust in yourself and in life in general, but it’s worth it.
Learn from your mistakes
We all make mistakes, that is for sure. What is for surer is that we all make mistakes repeatedly.
Many people struggle with giving up certain habits, routines, and substances due to the fact that it takes a lot of work to change something about yourself and your life.
It takes effort to change what you are doing wrong, but the more you do it, the easier it gets. Changing habits is a way to improve your life and yourself, so don’t be too hard on yourself!
The key is to find ways to improve your life that you enjoy and feel confident in doing. You will start to feel more comfortable and happier in your own skin.
Conquer your fears
Fear is a natural feeling that can be caused by many things.
You may fear failing at something, you may fear the change, you may fear the unknown, you may fear pain or loss, you may fear criticism, you may fear death, and so on.
We all have fears, but only some of us are aware of what we’re afraid of. And only those who are aware of their fears can do something about it.
Conquering your fears doesn’t mean that you won’t feel afraid anymore. It simply means that you’ll learn how to deal with your feelings of fear and anxiety. You’ll learn how to handle your emotions and responses.
Conquering your fears can help you live a happier and more fulfilling life. It can help you put yourself out there and take risks because you understand yourself better. You will become more productive and confident as a result.
The storm will come, so prepare now
Storms come, even in the calmest of seas. As a sailor, you will learn that storms come even in the warm waters.
Storms are not only limited to sea travel. In fact, land travelers may encounter worse storms than seafarers. This is because oceanographers can track circulating storms in the ocean, but not on land.
You will learn that a good sailor does not fear the storm, but rather learns to navigate the ship through it. This is very important to remember!
You can do many things to prepare for a storm coming your way. Start with keeping a calm head and heart and mind, and then start thinking about what you need to do to protect your ship. Ask questions and answer them thoroughly so you do not make any last minute mistakes.
Even if you are in the middle of a storm and your boat is wobbling, your main goal should be to stay positive.
You will get through this storm, your boat will not sink, and you will learn something new about sailing.
Storms can bring out the worst in people, so try to avoid any negative thoughts or conversations. People are already worried enough about the storm, so do not add to that.
People look to leaders for cues on how to behave when a crisis or disaster occurs. You are a leader now, so be sure to lead with confidence and optimism.
By being positive, you will help others around you feel comfortable and safe. This is important because if people are scared, they may do things that make the situation worse.
Keep repeating positive words to yourself like “I’m going to be okay” or “I can handle this.” It may sound silly, but it will help you feel more confident.
Keep calm and carry on
A very important lesson in life is to learn how to be calm in stressful situations.
Storms can be scary, but panicking won’t help you. Instead, by being calm and aware, you can take steps to mitigate the stress that comes with storms.
By learning how to handle difficult situations, you can put your mind at ease. Storms come and go, and most of the time, everything will be okay.
Dr. John Hamilton writes about this concept in his book The Brain In Front Of You. He describes two brains: the primitive brain and the higher brain. The higher brain is what makes us human — it’s what allows us to think rationally and plan for the future. It’s what gives us empathy and keeps us calm in the face of adversity.
Talk to someone
If you’re feeling stressed, worried, anxious, or afraid, talk to someone about it. It can be hard to put feelings into words, but it helps to talk to someone you trust and feel comfortable with.
There are many people you can talk to including friends, family, a counselor, clergyman, therapist, doctor, and more. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help- it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength.
Talking about what you are feeling can help you understand what you are feeling and why you are feeling that way. It can also help you find solutions or ways to manage your feelings and stress.
If talking in person is difficult for you then try texting or messaging someone on a app like WhatsApp or Telegram. You can also email or call someone if that is more comfortable for you.
Make a plan B
In case you couldn’t tell, we’re kind of obsessed with backup plans here at Calmful Living. It might be because we’re so focused on the here and now, but it could also be a result of having a turbulent past.
Having a plan B means you’re prepared for any situation, good or bad. You know that you will succeed, even if something unexpected happens.
This is especially important when it comes to calmness. If you know that there is some way to get through an event or situation without getting too upset or anxious, then you will be more prepared than most.
Planning ahead for situations that might make you anxious is an important part of living a calm life. Knowing that you have some control over what happens next will help you keep your head straight.
