We need to cultivate a mindset of calmness and non-reactivity. Paying attention to ourselves and being in the present moment, checking our emotions and thought patterns, is a great way to stay in a grounded position even with uncertainty and chaos all around.

Self care is not a selfish thing to do. You being at your very best is good for you and for your family, friends, and loved ones, who always want you at your best.

When we feel angry and helpless, we hope that someone will rescue us. A better way is to become a hero yourself, taking responsibility for your own life.

Human beings can find meaning in a life full of suffering and misery, if they move out of their own selves and start to help others.

Resisting uncertainty makes it persist. Self-acceptance is a paradoxical secret to happiness.
