by |

Ready yourself for those umpteen-things-going-wrong days with some simple confidence lifts

You were late for nursery drop off – and pick up. Your toddler had a tantrum in Tesco. The kitchen has been decorated… in spaghetti.

1) Smile it out

It may be the last thing you feel like doing, but a University of Kansas study found even the simple act of smiling can actually ease stress.
