Keeping calm can sometimes be difficult when you have a million things to do, the dog chewed your car keys, the kids are running around the house, and you spilled coffee on your last clean shirt 10 minutes before work. But what if there was a way you could keep calm on the go?

This week on “Take Care,” entrepreneur Michael Acton Smith speaks with us about his new app “Calm.” Acton Smith has been called the Willy Wonka of digital media and the British Disney for his creativity. He is the co-founder of the website, the author of “Calm: Calm the Mind, Change the World,” and is an officer of the Order of the British Empire for his services to the creative industries.

Acting on impulse is a problem many people deal with, but many do not know how to control. However, one television news anchor says there is a way to control your thoughts and actions before you yell at the person that cut you in line at Starbucks.

This week on “Take Care,” ABC News anchor Dan Harris discusses the benefits of meditation and how it made him change his view on his life. Harris is the author of the newly published book, “10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge and Found Self-Help That Actually Works – A True Story.” Harris currently works as a correspondent for ABC News and is a co-anchor for Nightline and the weekend edition of Good Morning America.

Meditation may seem like something that would be hard to do, or difficult to work into your schedule. But experts say there are many health benefits to meditation that can be achieved if you can find the time.

This week on “Take Care,” Jane Pernotto Ehrman talks about how meditation can benefit you and your health. Ehrman is the lead behavioral health specialist at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Lifestyle Medicine in the Wellness Institute.

ABC News reporter and anchor Dan Harris seemed to have a charmed life. Harris reported from around the world as a network television correspondent -- all before the age of 30. But under the surface he was anything but calm.

This week on WRVO's health and wellness show Take Care, Harris tells the story of his journey from drug abuse to discovering how meditation could quiet the internal voice that was keeping him from being happy. Hear more this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on WRVO.
