According to Prevention Magazine, the ability to maintain calm and serenity under pressure, or to not care about things, typically begins with daily meditation or solitude. For some people, religion or spirituality is part of their foundation. Others simply develop daily habits of calming their minds amid stress.
Physical activity, such as dance or daily exercise, is also a common strategy to maintain a peaceful existence. Some people rely on natural scents and oils to maintain serenity. Another approach is to build a habit of smiling or laughing in times of distress. Prevention Magazine reports that this tactic protects against tension and stress in such moments.
