10 top tips from Beaconhills College Senior Chaplain, The Revd Peggy Kruse, on how to remain hopeful and calm during challenging times.

  1. Take a deep breath – and just breathe in calmness and peace.
  2. Take time every day to pray or to meditate.
  3. Practise spirituality in looking for the meaning in situations and in our relationships.
  4. Live more soulfully – recognising what is most important in life – and that is – love.
  5. Think of all of the small mercies in our life – that is, all that we have to be thankful for.
  6. Keep communication up with our friends and families – even if it is through FaceTime or Skype.
  7. Go out into nature (without the crowds) and breathe in the fresh air and really notice the beauty around you.  Listen to the song of the birds, the rustle of the leaves on the tree, sit in the green grass and watch the clouds go by, smell the fragrances around you.
  8. Stop and look at a sunset or a sunrise – or even a rainbow.
  9. Bake something in the house that smells delicious.
  10. Tell all the people who you are close to – that you love them – and why.
