Maintaining calm is my first priority.
Maintaining calm is the first priority of everyone I know.
Maintaining calm is the first priority of everyone I don’t even know all over the planet.
When maintaining calm is the first priority, we put ourselves in a position of being able to think clearly.
We stop reacting to all the disturbances and excitement around us.
We take our three deep breaths and then we can examine our surroundings.
We can see which things need our attention.
We can ignore the things which do not.
We can deal with many other things later.
Our focus on remaining, or getting, calm and maintaining it, clarifies the action we need to take.
It allows us to sit still as long as we need to.
It takes the stress off our system and out of our mind.
Getting calm provides the one basis for doing anything that needs to be done.
