“31 Five-Second Reminders that Will Make Calmness Your Superpower”

This blog post, from Marc & Angel’s “Hack Life,” is a list of 31 five-second reminders that will make “calmness your superpower.”  Here’s a short excerpt from the intro:

“The ultimate measure of your wisdom and strength?  How calm you are when facing any given situation.  Yes, calmness is a human superpower.  The ability to not overreact or take things personally keeps your thoughts clean and your heart at peace, which instantly gives you an upper hand regardless of your circumstances.  Thus, the biggest and most complex obstacle you will ever have to overcome is your own mind.  If you can overcome that, you can overcome almost anything.  And by ‘overcoming,’ I’m referring to the skill of mindfulness, and learning to effectively control your emotional responses to life’s unexpected tests.  Because most of your deepest pain and frustration on a daily basis will come from the way you respond, not the way life is.”

And here’s one of the five-second reminders:

“When you are lost in worry, it is easy to mistake your worries for reality, instead of recognizing that they are just thoughts.”
