Be calm, stop stressing, embrace the universe, try yoga, be fulfilled—and that's an order! We're overwhelmed with these sorts of commands, and we often torture ourselves to "try harder," yet somehow we never feel we've done quite enough. It's about time we stop pushing ourselves to do what we think we're supposed to do, suggests Fabrice Midal here, and instead simply allow ourselves to be angry, tired, silly, and passionate. Urging us to cut the merde, Midal explains why the key to true mindfulness is freeing ourselves from social and self-imposed stresses by saying c'est la vie and giving ourselves a break.
