A guide to our anxious minds, offering a pathway to calm, self-compassion, and mental well-being.

We all experience anxiety, but too often we bottle up our anxiousness, ashamed of what others might say, and end up feeling isolated and afraid. But anxiety is normal and deeply human. This book explains why we feel it, how we experience it, and what we can do about it.

With their trademark combination of practicality, philosophy, and wit, The School of Life examines anxiety from a number of angles, providing a clear path forward to a calmer, kinder, compassionate, and more light-hearted future.

  • TRAUMA, RELATIONSHIPS, OVERTHINKING, SELF-LOATHING: this book explore 19 varieties of anxiety, and the tone is like a pep talk from a trusted friend.
  • INCLUDES PRACTICAL SELF-REFLECTION EXERCISES: designed to help calm and unburden the mind.
