Calm as balm...

10 Aug 2013

I like to think as calmness as my antidote to anxiety and stress. I remind myself that it is very difficult to be stressed and calm at the same time and I would rather be calm. I try to accept all that is going on around me without a struggle and conserve my energy for when I need it and can do something constructive.

Difficult as it is, try not to react to things that can drive you down and physically move away to somewhere that you know to be calm. A favourite place, a seat with a calmer outlook. A place outside. A bench where you can observe nature which seems to exist with effortless and graceful ease.

Think of calm as a big jar of special balm which is always there to rub on and relax with. Mmmm...
