When was the last time you used a physical dictionary to look up a word? Perhaps you also took advantage of a thesaurus to explore synonyms and antonyms, to add variety to your writing or show off a bit.

If only or other such tools were available back in the day, a few simple keystrokes might have improved my grades in language arts and English!

Here are some words I found for commotion and some alternatives for keeping our cool:

SYNONYMS Brouhaha Pandemonium Hubbub Bedlam Upheaval Insurrection
ANTONYMS Calm Harmony Peace Quietude Tranquility Stillness


How do you react and respond when you notice commotion in your world? How can you do a better job of keeping your cool while others are losing theirs?
