calm and imperturbable, unemotional, unexcitable, insensitive, cool, carefree, indifferent, apathetic, stoic, emotionless, phlegmatic, unresponsive, unconcerned, impassive, as cool as a cucumber, placid, dull


The starting point of staying calm and sometimes stolid under pressure is for you to refuse to react automatically and unthinkingly. Instead, take a deep breath to calm your mind and then think carefully about your next words and actions. Imagine that everyone is watching.

Imagine that this situation is a test to see what you are truly made of. Imagine that everyone is waiting to see how you will respond.

Resolve to set a good example, to be a role model for others, to demonstrate the correct way to deal with a major problem, as if you were giving a lesson.
