Author(s): Oliver James
How to Create Emotional Health is a guide to leading a more enjoyable and fulfilling life. Rather than seeking to be happy, Oliver James encourages the idea of wellbeing -- a state in which we are self-aware, authentic, adaptable, vivacious and able to live in the moment. He shows that through self-reflection, we can develop insight and awareness of who we are and what we truly want and need. By paying special attention to the impact of childhood and past relationships, we can tackle insecurities and alter negative thought patterns, ultimately improving the way we function as adults. Key to this approach is the adoption of a more resilient and playful mind-set, one which allows us to learn from mistakes and bounce back in a healthy way. In this thought-provoking and uplifting guide from The School of Life series, Oliver develops strategies for meeting the challenges of daily life, including practical advice for setting career goals, strengthening relationships and improving family cohesion. He offers vital steps towards insight, energy and the ultimate reward of better emotional health.
