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.

Every crisis presents opportunities for growth. Think how someone else you admire might handle the situation.

How can your crises shape you for the better?

Anxiety might make you feel that you should handle this problem without help.

Connecting with someone for help can make solutions and opportunities easier to find.

Sometimes it can be difficult to stay calm.

Take the time to stop and breathe deeply or practice mindfulness to return your attention to the present moment and away from the worries and fears.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.
