Calm Prompt Cards

A set of calming prompt cards that use a mixture of irony, philosophical insight and strategic pessimism to lend perspective on life’s sorrows and regrets.

It isn't that we ever forget the value of calm, just that losing our composure is a constant risk. Every day brings with it new temptations to lose our tempers: the behaviour of partners, colleagues, children – and computers. Fresh distractions, worries and fears arise which leave us feeling stressed and unsettled.

This small pack of prompt cards contains a collection of different observations and ideas to help us handle these frustrations. Through ironic humour, consoling cultural references, and a small amount of pessimistic wisdom, they help to summon up our best and calmest selves.

Example Cards:

  • The people who most care about you will not especially admire your achievements; they like you anyway.

  • For paranoia about ‘what other people think’: remember that only some hate, a very few love – and almost all just don’t care.

  • The only people we feel are sane are those we don’t yet know very well.

Pick your favourite card and keep it in your wallet as a calming momento wherever you may be. Post one of these pocket-sized cards to a friend as a talisman of tranquillity, or frame a particularly relevant card for display on your wall.
