From “The little book of stress” (Calm is for wimps Get real Get Stressed) by Rohan Candappa:
From the Latin ‘carpe’ – to carp or whinge, and ‘diem’ – meaning daily, hence ‘carpe diem’ – whinge daily.
CAR PARK DIEM
When out driving, if you see the chance to box someone in by parking too close to them, seize it.
TIME ISN’T MONEY
When using a cash dispenser try out every transaction possible. But only if there are people behind you.
THE PRESENT TENSE
Really tense up all your muscles. Try to stay this way all day. If this proves impossible, you have yet again failed at a really simple task.
