There's a high chance you are feeling overloaded on a continuous basis these days.

There's a lot we cannot control which can be scary, but there are a few things we can - like taking deep breaths, being present in the moment, being kind and compassionate to ourselves and others, snuggling our pets and nurturing our children.

When your brain's spinning and your heart's hurting try using this page to bring you back to the present moment and inject a dose of calm into trying times.
