We live in busy times. We need to take action to balance the busy-ness with balancing techniques that keep us peaceful.
It’s not easy to stay peaceful under pressure. Here are four abilities we can cultivate to make it a little less hard.

Whenever we feel hard done by or in pain, we have a simple choice. We can get stuck in resentment, or we can embark upon a positive action, however small.
