Publisher's Summary

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

Far more than we tend to realize, we’re all - in private - deeply anxious. There is so much that worries us across our days and nights: whether our hopes will come true, whether others will like us, whether the people we care about will be okay, whether we can escape humiliation and 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 and yet more worried. None of this is necessary. Anxiety is deeply normal and, like so much else that troubles our minds, it can be understood and brought under our control. We all deserve to wake up every day without a sense of foreboding.

This is a guide to anxiety: why we feel it, how we experience it when it strikes, and what we can do when we come under its influence. Across a series of essays that look at the subject from a number of angles, the tone is helpful, compassionate, and in the best sense, practical.

Rachel Lanning is an amazing narrator!!

I have enjoyed much of the books from the school of life. I am so glad they decided to have Rachel Lanning narrate this book, she has a very soothing voice. I thoroughly enjoyed the content and the presentation. Bravo!

Short but really enjoyed

An great description of the human condition and the anxieties it perpetually drives in us all - some more so than others. If you consider yourself an anxious type, I think you will like this book. Good School of Life material here.
