Remaining calm in the face of chaos

I won't get into it all but I need suggestions or book suggestions that will help me to remain calm and happy even while everything around me is falling apart.

thank you

Resource and grounding exercise

I am so sorry everything is falling apart in your life.
I certainly had those moments when nothing goes well in my life.
It is soooo hard.

What I usually do is to revisit my resources:
- see a therapist
- talk or write to or have lunch with my friends
- join some groups i am interested in to expand my supportive network
- keep up with good hygiene, exercise routine, healthy food
- journal
- feed your soul, what feeds your soul? for me, is dancing, music and arts

As for books, I love this one:

Amazon Amazon

Hope that you are feeling better.
Again when things are falling apart, they are breaking open for better situation, it is a sign of change, it may not be bad, actually changes are always good, even though it does not feel that way at the moment, but please have faith that it shall pass!

I'm so sorry for you too. Very good suggestions from Yi Zhao.
Personally, I find writing it down helps. Even if you keep your writing private, it helps you work through your problems in ways you might not realise. If you're feeling angry or can't sleep, it's a good place to release your energy in a way that won't harm others. It may not solve your problems, but maybe you'll feel better, and that's worth something.
