Anxiety

The School of Life

Overview

Evolution has left us predisposed to anxiety. Our minds often struggle to distinguish between real, imminent danger and minor mishaps. We overestimate our chances of making lots of money, finding love, and how often we will feel happy. Inevitably, we are left feeling disappointed in ourselves and angry at our societies.

The School of Life turns big philosophical and psychological concepts into compelling and digestible videos, essays, and books. Staffed by writers, artists, educators, and philosophers, The School of Life is devoted to providing its audience with insight into their behavior and tools for living a better life.

Anxiety: Meditations on the Anxious Mind is an essay collection offering insight into why we feel so deeply anxious, the many ways in which our fears manifest, and how we can deal with them.

Favorite Quote

"It tends to be all-consuming. It squats in the middle of our minds and refuses to let anything else in or through. Though the anxiety causes us great pain, it denies any attempts to be questioned, analysed, probed or reconfigured."
