do you have a technique for keeping calm?

“Do you have a technique for keeping calm?”

Keeping calm is something that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, to the extent that I recently ordered some items from The School of Life in London to help me out. 

I ordered a few different things but the one item that intrigues me the most is a compact box of cards titled Small Pleasures

Inside is a series of double sided cards with both an image and a description of a modest pleasure; things that are all around us and available for almost nothing, but of which many people take no notice of. 

For example: a crackling fire; or nice bits of religions you don’t believe in

The intention is to use these cards to remind myself that there’s small pleasures all around at any point in time; I just need to open my eyes, and my heart, a little more. 

Next question for Kitty:

“If you had to live somewhere else, where would you live?”
