What do you expect? How to find deep calm

Finding calm doesn’t mean losing your joy or enthusiasm. If anything, it’s the opposite: fine-tuning your appreciation for what is all around you; seeking balance where life is distorted and chaotic; creating a more joyous, fulfilled, and less anxious way of being. Even in the best of times, our anxiety can dictate the terms of our reality. Our brains are hard-wired to scan for impending threats in order to keep us safe, and the body keeps score. We can’t escape this. We can learn to work with what is naturally happening so that it doesn’t pull us under into the deep black waters of anxiety and despair. Finding yourself begins with finding calm.
