|In moments of tension, what techniques work in calming the mind?
This crowd is no bigger than my first performance. Just get out there and do your "thang."
Moments of tension are great. They allow us to know who we are, a little better.
I use my anchoring techniques to get in the right mindset for any situation. I am calm when calmness is neccessary to my success, and I can choose to allow myself to feel under pressure, if that serves my objective. I perform better under pressure, because I get tunnel vision and extreme focus on the goal in mind.
In regards to interacting with other people, tension is byproduct of a negative frame (such as insecurity, fear, anger, etc...) So in a moment of tension between myself & another person, I simply reserve my right to REJECT tension, and let the other person carry the load by themselves. It might be selfish, but we're all responsible for the way we feel, and if others feel tense, it's not my problem.
Smoking, crying, cussing, smiling and counting one's blessings.
Trying to be patient and understanding. One would need to realize that they are tense and for what reason they are tense.
The phrase "Life is too short to worry about such a triviality." usually works for me. Deep breaths and a smile to yourself as all around you are "losing it."
breathing. In, out, let everything go. get back to the here and now. eat the elephant one bite at a time.
breathing and quietness
Try relaxation technique, focus on your breathing and not the 'busy' mind. Tune out all the 'noises' and you will feel all your senses back.
Deep breathing, Music, thinking about something completely off topic, but different 'techniques' are used for different situation.
This depends on each person. For me, in moments of tension, for example being patient to wait for somebody, light music always really helps calm me down. Or another method is that I can deep my thinking into something and imagine it positively and optimistically. This way always helps me avoid headache.
I think of something that makes me happy and I smile!!!=)
have some time to enjoy yourself and relax...
go to places with great sceneries,surf the 'net, listen to j-pop music, draw something, watch anime..
that's what i do!
just sit calmy alone .....or meditate....it all depends frm person to person.....one person may find talking to a close frnd will ease the tension while the other might find ....praying to god will find a way out.........
Go and make yourself a cup of tea and watch something nonsensical on tv for a hal-hour. Obviously this technique only works for a minor crisis.
I can usually count to 15 and my tension usually just kinda melts away. but if im really angry and there is tension in my family then i can just hit a pillow and then i wont accidentally hurt some one or keeping it hidden from every one until i just explode it up
