“Equanimity” Drawn & Defined

Equanimity is one of those words that I had heard a bunch of times (especially in the context of meditation and mindfulness) but never really knew what it meant.

So I decided to look it up and sketch it out as part of a new YouTube channel called Doug Draws Words. That’s where I’ll continue sharing short sketchnote videos of interesting words that I come across.

Here’s the definition:

Equanimity: mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.

Like a happy little mountain in the midst of a snowstorm. I hope that the video above and image below help you to remember that!

Equanimity: a mountain in the midst of a storm with a calm smile on its face.
