Thing To Do Today: be nonchalant.

Be calm, be collected.

Be nonchalant.

So, don't get hot under the collar:

admire the curving lines of pretty red lights in the traffic jam ahead of you;

smile indulgently at the antics of all the funny little politicians;

wait for the next train;

notice the way the puddles reflect the silvery sky;

have a different sort of sandwich, then.

Make cool the new hot.

Thing To Do Today: be nonchalant. This word arrived in English in the 1800s from France. Their word nonchaloir means to lack warmth and came from the Latin word calēre, which means to be warm.
