It's important to do what we can to stay calm - or to return to our inner core of calmness again and again. So that we can meet the world and very importantly ourselves from a place of openness and kindness.
Every day I hear people use words, that give the impression that there is some kind of outside 'authority' that they are trying to please.. I hear them say "I have to __", "I should ___" "I ought to___"
If we speak to ourselves like that then we are, even on a subtle level, creating a feeling of being at the mercy of something or someone else...and I think that we can all agree, that that doesn't help us feel calm.
I'm not talking about not taking care of our responsibilities, but I'm talking about the narrative that you add to your responsibilities. There is a much better way to speak about these things to ourselves and others. Listen to the tip and meditation below to learn more:)
Lot's of love
