Everyone’s telling you not to worry, and it’s doing absolutely nothing to help, right? Your feelings – be they fear, anxiety, helplessness, or downright agitation – are perfectly valid because virtually every aspect of our lives has been impacted by the COVID-19 virus. Having said that, it’s also important to keep calm as best you can. After all, we’re in the midst of a pandemic, not panicdemic. Enter: the global headquarters of emotional intelligence, The School of Life.
The experts here have addressed how to tackle life’s most inevitable challenges through videos, books, workshops, and more – and this situation is no exception. Not only does it have its own video dedicated to calmness, above, but it has also designed a set of tools to help rehearse and improve our ability to remain calm. In it awaits a book that unpacks the causes of our stresses and offers persuasive yet hilarious arguments with which to defend ourselves against panic, a set of prompt cards that lend perspective on life’s sorrows, a 15-minute timer to remind us to carve out time for what really counts, and cards that provide invitations to recover a calmer perspective on life. To quote a wise motivational poster from the 1930s: “Keep calm and carry on.”
