In improv terms, is essentially “yes, anding” your face. Accepting the reality and building on it, working with what you have to make something even better.

You can always tell when you see or meet someone who is truly authentic and living comfortably and openly with who they are. And usually, they’re our most favourite people to be around.

We’ve all probably experienced panic at some stage in our life. And the first thing to do if you start to panic – in any situation – is to just breathe.
Sometimes we get caught up in the trappings of success only to realise later in life that the things we thought would make us feel successful don’t define it for us at all.
