4 Tips for How to Stay Calm When Things Go Wrong


1. Don’t jump to conclusions before you have full information.

Sometimes odd things happen in life. For example, once I got a message that said that multiple unknown attempts were being made to access my bank account. Of course, this freaked me out.

However, it turned out that it wasn’t anything nefarious and was related to Mint (the financial tracking app) auto pulling information from the account. I had authorized it long ago, but I had never received any scary messages before, so I had no reason to consider that might’ve been the cause initially. A quick phone call to the bank was all it took to track down what was happening, but I had to tolerate my anxiety until their customer service team was open the next day.
