Aki's Thoughts,  The Work of Byron Katie

How do you remain calm in a stressful situation?

I was asked this question by a sweet friend of mine.


“I was recently asked by a friend about how to remain calm in a stressful situation…
She’s not familiar with The Work so I didn’t know what to say.
What would you say in such a situation?”



I enjoy receiving questions like this.
They invite me to sit still to find my answer inside.



This is my answer.

How to remain calm in a stressful situation…

If I’m asked, I would say that I am practicing a habit of noticing my beliefs and emotions before I react.

Between things happened and my reactions, I create a space of noticing.

A moment to ask myself “Is it true?”

It doesn’t happen automatically.

It takes some practice.

Yet, once I start having this habit, I seem to stay calmer than before.
