´ Don't Calm Down -
March 14, 2016

When something important is up like a negotiation or an exam we have heard for years to calm down. Interestingly those who calm down or attempt to calm down don’t do better, they do worse. High intensity emotions cannot just be suppressed rather the energy needs to be transformed. It’s more helpful to say ‘I am excited’ or ‘this is the energy I need to perform’ than to forcing ourselves to calm down.
