The School of Life: Calm : the harmony and serenity we crave Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A guide to developing the art of finding serenity by understanding the sources of our anxiety and frustrations. Almost all of us wish we could be calmer; it is one of the distinctive longings of the modern age. Across history people have sought adventure and excitement, however a new priority for many of us is a desire to be more tranquil.

This is a book designed to support us in our endeavours to remain calm against all the adversities life throws at us. A calm state of mind is not a divine gift, we can alter our responses to everyday things and educate ourselves in the art of remaining calm, not through slow breathing or special teas, but through thinking. This is a book that explores the causes of our greatest stresses and anxieties and gives us a succession of highly persuasive, beautiful and sometimes dryly comic arguments with which to defend ourselves against panic and confusion. Part of a new essential paperback series from The School of Life, covering a range of emotional lessons needed in order to lead fulfilled and happy lives. PRAISE FOR CALM:'A thought-provoking and intelligent book ...

Full of ideas to reflect upon and introduce into our world for a calmer life.''Beautifully written and incredibly comforting.

The writing itself makes you feel calm, and it seems to instil a seed of hope in you that you really can lead a more calm and peaceful life.'
