Whether you’re 25 or 55, adulting is tough. Our modern life is a nonstop bombardment of communication and distractions, filled with responsibilities, bureaucracy and complicated affairs. Even the best task jugglers can find themselves overwhelmed.

However, we can all learn to approach our problems, challenges and nuisances without a sense of dread. Buddha’s wisdom shows us how to handle all aspects of our life with a lighter touch, or maybe even some joy! With this sense of lightness we’ll naturally be more skillful, more efficient and more productive.
