The advancement of technology and social media paved the way for the rise of a phenomenon called “selfie”. It became so popular that selfie was named the Word of Year for 2013 by the Oxford Dictionaries.
Do you get mad when somebody cuts you on traffic? How about when your child does not listen to you? How about when your staff can’t get his/her work done properly? All of us encounter situations that irate us and test our patience on a daily basis. Getting angry and frustrated is normal. However, if it gets out of control, it becomes destructive on both our health and relationships with other people. Managing how to respond to such situations is a skill that all of us must have.
When we were children and feeling down or upset, our reaction was to pout or frown. We carry this behaviour into our adult selves. Even after the problem has been solved, adults still sometimes choose to remain pouting or keep on frowning.
Everyday, all of us are ageing. It is a natural and inevitable process. No matter how hard we try, we cannot stop it. No amount of anti-aging treatments, specialized diets or exercise can stop or reverse the signs of ageing. It simply is impossible. We can, however, choose to age gracefully.
We may not be able to stop ageing but we can do something to slow it down.
