As we move up and down the elevator of situational mental awareness, throughout the day, we are using mental and physical energy. Eighty percent of human communication is body language. It only takes a few seconds to assess a life threatening situation and mentally escalate to the next color of mental awareness. If the situation is non-threatening, we mentally de-escalate to yellow.
As we learn to live in the yellow and take in information in a relaxed, but alert mindset, we gain confidence to protect our self and loved ones.
