“Stress is a part of life and it must be braved with utmost courage and patience,” Wani said. “The easiest way to deal with stress is to shrug it off with a smile. Living in the moment is the key to time management.”
“Contentment is a state of being satisfied with one’s current situation,” Wani said. “A sense of contentment automatically generates happiness thereby allowing no room for stress to develop. “She also gave the audience valuable tips to manage time.
