fire and fury!

Deep breaths. Count to 10. Go exercise. Drink. Pummel a punching bag into oblivion. Rub one out. Scream along to a DMX track. Record an angry voice note to the subject of your rage (but – and please take my word on this – don’t send it). These are just some of the things people do in order to deal with anger, but for most of us, those solutions are usually only helpful as once-offs.So what the actual F do you do when you feel like everything, every day, is conspiring to make you upset?

‘My dreams are so big, they keep me awake. It’s all the possibilities of the future that keep me going’ When Ayanda Thabethe opted to study Marketing and Communication Management, she couldn’t possibly have predicted that one of the biggest brands she’d establish would be the one she’s built around herself. Since starting out in the corporate world, the Durban-born powerhouse has added model, actress, TV host, entrepreneur and brand ambassador to her list of titles.
