Most of us wish we could be more 'calm.' But why? What is it about modern life that drives us to pursue a life of tranquility? Is optimism, aspiration and our desire to 'better' ourselves causing us more pain than it's worth? I'm on a mission to understand what drives my obsession for feeling 'calm' and the The School of Life's 'The Book of Life' is a great source of insight. Read The Pursuit of Calm.
