I don’t know about you but the effect of having to live in major cities such as London, New York, Amsterdam, Manila and so no, is that I have to turn my phone notifications off regularly. Most of the time I get my news through my phone and not sure if you noticed this but the news we receive these days seem to be bad news all the time. And I mean all the time! In many cases the news that I read are worthy of tears but if you are like me, you won’t even have the time to cry. I want to process it but I don’t have time for this. I often end up saying, let me get back to that. Somehow I think that our souls are deteriorating very very slowly. I’ve just decided to add, Don’t Watch the News, to my not-to-do list for now.
How do we then find calm in this storm? This storm of super-fast-paced, bad-things-happen-all-the-time society?
I’ve recently been to one of my favourite clinical psychologist’s seminar on emotional resilience. It’s nothing new to me being a psychologist myself but it’s just made an iteration that is well worth the share to everyone I know. I’ll have the write-up by end of this week. In the meantime, keep well everyone. Keep well.
