Description

From The School of Life - an organisation built to help us find calm, self-understanding, resilience and connection - especially during troubled times.

About Calm:
Few life skills are as neglected, yet as important, as the ability to remain calm. Our very worst decisions and interactions are almost invariably the result of a loss of calm - and a descent into anxiety and agitation. Surprisingly, but very fortunately, our power to remain calm can be rehearsed and improved.

We don't have to remain where we are now: our responses to everyday challenges can dramatically alter. We can educate ourselves in the art of remaining calm not through slow breathing or special teas but through thinking. This is a book that patiently unpacks the causes of our greatest stresses and gives us a succession of highly persuasive, beautiful and sometimes dryly comic arguments with which to defend ourselves against panic and fury.

Chapters include:
Romantic Expectations
The Weakness of Strength
Unintended Hurt
In Defence of Politeness
Patience
Colleagues
The Sources of Calm
The Quiet Life
