the little book of calm

Black Books: Episode 1: Cooking the Books

Let go once in a while, you are a loose Lily floating down an amber river

Whenever you’re in a tight spot, try to imagine yourself marooned on a beautiful desert island’.

When you rest, you are a king surveying your estate. Look at the woodland, the peacocks on the lawn. Be the king of your own calm kingdom

If you want to feel calm, eat more raw fruit and vegetables, yoghurt, milk and seeds.

When you’re feeling under pressure, do something different. Roll up your sleeves, or eat an orange.

Be on the look out for things that make you laugh. If you see nothing worth laughing at, pretend you see it, then laugh.

Add a dab of lavender to milk; leave town with an orange, and pretend you’re laughing at it.
