The keys to life. From a Cave Divers perspective

The keys to life. From a Cave Divers perspective

1. Get control of your breathing
2. Get control of your buoyancy or physical person
3. Think about the solution don’t focus on the problem
4. Act in a calm, controlled and precise manner
5. Do not react based on your emotions; fear and anger = fight or flight

-Fear leads to panic, and a panicked mind is a non-functional mind.

-Anger leads to an adrenaline response and consumes all your energy or the ATP in your cells which consumes the Oxygen in your blood leaving your brain starving and once again non-functional.

Take time, breathe and think before acting in a calm and rational manner..

Imagine if the whole world did this..

BE THE CAVE DIVER!!! 🙂
