anxiety

Far more than we tend to realise we're all deeply anxious. There is so much that worries us across our days & nights. Whether our hopes will come true, whether others will like us, whether the people we care about will be OK, whether we can escape humiliation & grief... Too often we bottle up our anxieties or try to avoid looking at them directly. We are ashamed of how worried we are and end up feeling isolated & yet more worried. None of this is necessary. Anxiety is deeply normal and it can be understood & brought under our control. We all deserve to wake up everyday without a sense of foreboding. This is a guide to anxiety - why we feel it, how we experience it & what we can do when we come under it's influence in a helpful, compassionate & practical way. The school of life are devoted to allowing people to think intelligently about emotional concerns. Hardcover. 111 pages.
