MORE IDEAS FROM How to Stay Calm in a "Crisis" at Work
Most work crises are overblown. It is important for those caught in the moment to search for perspective by asking themselves if it is a major problem or a problem that is quite fixable.
Start by counting to 100 by threes so you will have to think a little. It may momentarily distract you from the panic and you'll have a better chance to think clearly.
Instead of focussing on the negatives in the situation, deliberately discover what is still going right.
In choosing your perspective you are keeping the problem from consuming you.
Try not to react immediately, but be patient and gather as much information as possible.
If the problem will not matter a year from now, distance yourself somewhat from the situation to gain perspective.
