How to stay calm in any situation

What happens when we face massive fear, threat or stress? We are running away, or freeze or fight. All therapies in essence support and enable the client for forward confrontation – to face the facts and work through the situation. To stay present and deal with the situation, to fight through it (or even your own mind and patterns and trauma and history).

To lean into the friction in healthy and adaptive ways. To embrace the challenge and transform it. To change your behaviour forever. Since a while I am heaviely inspired by the work of neuroscientist Dr. Andrew Huberman. He is a brilliant mind and an amazing human being. Check him out on Joe Rogan and Lex Fridman Podcasts. So much increddible work from him is out there for free. Here he describes a simple and effective way to get yourself in a state where you are able to process ANYTHING. Lateral eye movement. (He also delivers the scientific background, why EMDR therapies work.)
To even at the same time release dopamine and get immediately rewarded for this action of forward moving/confrontation, while getting yourself in a hightend alerted but relaxed state of being. Meaning to have access to optimal brain performance. To basically temporary deactivate your amygdala, your threat detection center. Try it out the next time you feel troubled. Here some more background about the why and how:

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!

    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to
    find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior
    to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!
