In her annual Christmas Day message to Britain, Queen Elizabeth II advised the country take a “deep breath” when trying to face the world’s problems.
The 90-year old Queen, who missed the traditional Christmas church service near her Sandringham estate due to a heavy cold, used the message to praise those who had offered inspiration through out the year. Included medalists from this year’s Paralympic and Olympic Games in Rio and even those who work with her nephew Prince William, a helicopter pilot in the East Anglican Air Ambulance.

‘When people face a challenge they sometimes talk about taking a deep breath to find courage or strength. In fact, the word ‘inspire’ literally means ‘to breathe in.’ — Queen Elizabeth II
She added that it’s “understandable” that Britain sometimes thinks the world’s problems are so immense, the country can’t really help. However, the “cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of goodness can be bigger than we imagine,”
