How to Stay Sane

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

There is no simple set of instructions that can guarantee sanity, but if you want to overcome emotional difficulties and become happier, psychotherapist Philippa Perry argues that there are four cornerstones to sanity you can influence to bring about change. By developing your self-observation skills, examining how you relate to others, breaking out of your comfort zone and exploring new ways of defining yourself, she demonstrates that it is possible to become a little less tortured and a little more fulfilled. This book is at once a brilliant explanation of our minds and a profoundly useful guide to facing up to the many challenges life throws our way.

One in the new series of books from The School of Life, launched May 2012:

From Publishers Weekly

22 October 2012 – Lumping the insane into two broad groups those who lurch from crisis to crisis and those who have got themselves into a rut and operate from a limited set of outdated, rigid responses Perry (Couch Fiction) explains how to stay on the path between those two extremes. Right off the bat, it s clear her intention is not to transform the clinically crazy into functioning members of society; rather, this brief book is aimed at everyday folks struggling to remain stable and yet flexible, coherent and yet able to embrace complexity. Perry, a psychotherapist, explains that people who maintain sanity have changed in four areas: self-observation, relationships with others, coping with stress, and telling stories. The author addresses each in as many chapters, wherein she discusses related topics as diverse as biology, learning styles, the effects of exercise, and a Wagner opera, as well as illustrative case studies. Folks seeking further guidance will find more than 30 pages of practical exercises , as well as a list of suggested reading. Though Perry s approach can sometimes be difficult to follow, her inviting tone (complemented by lighthearted illustrations throughout) and friendly prose make this an accessible addition to the School of Life publications.
