“Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health.”– Dalai Lama
Calmness is power. When we are calm, our mind is in harmony and our senses work in the perfect manner. But, when we lose the calm, we lose our sense of perception of things. We commit to dangerous acts which cause more harm to us than others. Which is why, it is important to maintain calm and cool even when it seems impossible. But how is the question?
