Say to yourself: I will maintain calm energy and calm attention.
You will quickly discover that having this intention, and maintaining consciousness of this concept, is genuinely empowering.
The more intentional and more conscious you are of this concept, the more efficient and productive you’ll be, the more contributive you’ll be, and ultimately the more you’ll be able to genuinely sustain a state of peaceful joy.
Calm Energy: entails lightness of movement, gentle approaches and interactions (with people, things, & environments), stabilizing and increasing self-regulation by purposefully engaging physical and emotional balance in your action
Calm Attention: enables a more discretionary engagement with people and environment (and in learning), encourages flow and authenticity in your experience, sustains self-management of focus and focus shifting/directing, prolongs ability to concentrate well, increases good judgment and effective cognitive processing
Calm Energy and Calm Attention are synergistic and should be intentionally engaged, either simultaneously or successively. Intentional engagement of each concept will enable each other to function ideally.
Calm Energy and Calm Attention have two primary functions:
1) increase ease and efficiency in your efforts
2) increase presence
Increasing ease and efficiency in effort allows for a more productive, more enjoyable, and ultimately more valuable experience.
Increasing presence allows for a more elucidating and meaningful experience and can essentially help to ‘slow down time’, which helps in sustaining joy.
Ultimately: Calmness regulates and sustains both energy and attention. This calmness enables energy and attention to be more valuable and effective, and it ultimately increases one’s potential for improvement, meaningful contribution, and enjoyability of experience.
