Keep calm and cope with everything.


Keeping calm. How on earth is that possible, when you look at the calendar and see it’s September already? You know what that means. Yes, the rest of the year will be a blur. Before you know it, we’ll have year-end craziness to deal with.

September is when things get really busy. Everyone at school, college or university starts the final sprint to exams. And all of us have some project that needs to be completed before the holidays start. A renovation maybe? Holiday planning?

If you’re a regular human being, the craziness can take its toll. So, how to stay calm amidst the chaos? We have some advice from the wise people and the experts on de-stressing or avoiding getting into a spin.

Let’s start with meditation.

It’s an ancient practice that’s still used today. Meditation is religious in origin but practiced by both religious and non-religious people who swear by its power.

There are many different mediation techniques, so do your homework before you start, and find a technique that appeals to you.
