2. The School of Life Resilience Pocket Prompt Cards    The School of Life Resilience Pocket Prompt Cards.
A set of double-sided cards designed to help us become more confident in the face of adversity; short prompts on one side are accompanied by illustrative photographs on the reverse. We often overestimate how fragile we are. In our nightmares, we assume that life would become impossible for us far earlier than it actually would. In reality, we could manage perfectly well with a lot less than we currently have. Not that we should want this to happen, of course: it's simply that we could bear it. We forget our resilience in the face of risk and become unnecessarily timid. Our lives become dominated by a fear of losing things that we could in fact do without. This set of cards is designed to gently remind us that we are far stronger than we imagine. Reminders for Resilience - Extracts from the Card Set 3 a.m. alone in bed is perhaps not the optimal moment at which to derive a true picture of reality. Wait - always - for the perspective of dawn. Things don't need to be perfect; we are creatures eminently suited to ‘good enough'. It sounds heartless to say: ‘you'll get over it'. But you will. The brain is designed to exaggerate troubles. We suffer more in our thoughts than in reality. Loneliness may be more pleasant than the compromises of false community. We really need only one counsel in the end: This too shall pass... Most of what we've ever learnt came to us in periods of suffering. You aside, no one is carefully keeping track of your idiocies. Rather than admire the new and pristine, we should make a cult of mended things. The School of Life is an organisation devoted to teaching us how to grow into happier, calmer, more successful people. Our retail offering is made up of a range of emotional wellbeing tools that can help us to better understand ourselves and the world. These items are elegant, surprising, often witty and, above all, useful. These are tools to help us make relationships work, build fulfilling careers, understand ourselves, nurture friendships, get the most out of culture and find calm.

3. The School of Life Know Yourself Pocket Prompt Cards    The School of Life Know Yourself Pocket Prompt Cards.
60 prompt cards designed to help lead you through the important task of knowing yourself a little better in life. It's hard to understand who we really are: what we want, how we feel and why we react as we do. This lack of self-knowledge can be trouble, for it makes us get into the wrong relationships, pick unsatisfactory jobs or spend money unwisely. No wonder Socrates summed up all the counsel of philosophy in just two words: 'Know Yourself'. These cards are designed to assist us in a journey of self-knowledge; they present us with a range of ideas and questions that can help us to understand ourselves better. Each card carries an exercise on one side and a piece of analysis on the reverse to help you gain insight and clarity on that ever elusive subject: yourself. Worth Knowing: Some of the content of this product would not be suitable for children under 18. The School of Life is an organisation devoted to teaching us how to grow into happier, calmer, more successful people. Our retail offering is made up of a range of emotional wellbeing tools that can help us to better understand ourselves and the world.

4. The School of Life The Marriage Box 20 Cards    The School of Life The Marriage Box 20 Cards.
20 cards containing the secrets to a successful long-term union. Our society typically devotes huge attention to the start of a marriage - and particularly to the actual wedding ceremony. But the real challenge lies beyond the wedding, with the long years ahead - and here we are too often left on our own. This box is The School of Life's guide to the rest of a life together, containing twenty beautiful cards which lay out the central ideas on how to make a relationship work over the decades beyond the wedding day. It is filled with artful suggestions on coping with what even the most loving couple will face as they build a life together. This set of cards is both a celebration of marriage and a rich source of insights into the skills it demands. Quotes from the cards: In Praise of Compromise: 'Couples who compromise are not the enemies of love: they may be at the vanguard of understanding what lasting relationships truly demand and what they are for. They deserve admiration, not condemnation.' On Sex and Marriage: ‘The waning of sex is - far more than we collectively admit - a sign that a marriage is stabilising, not failing. If we more publically admitted this, we'd be less panicked, less ashamed and a little less resentful when the sex got less intense and less frequent.' On Sulking: 'We should never hold it against our partners that they need to have our intentions and feelings explained to them very patiently and without aggression. The real sign of love is not magical insight; it is the willingness to explain and to listen calmly.' On Other People's Marriages: 'Our sense of whether of our own marriage is going well or badly is subtly but powerfully dependent on our mental picture of what marriages in general tend to be like.' On the Weakness of Strengths: 'We should always strive to see people's weaknesses as the inevitable downside of certain merits that drew us to them, and from which we will benefit at other points (even if none of these benefits are apparent right now). What we're seeing are not their faults, pure and simple, but rather the shadow side of things that are genuinely good about them.' The School of Life is an organisation devoted to teaching us how to grow into happier, calmer, more successful people. Our retail offering is made up of a range of emotional wellbeing tools that can help us to better understand ourselves and the world. These items are elegant, surprising, often witty and, above all, useful. These are tools to help us make relationships work, build fulfilling careers, understand ourselves, nurture friendships, get the most out of culture and find calm.

5. The School of Life 20 Wisdom Display Cards    The School of Life 20 Wisdom Display Cards.
A set of twenty cards exploring what it really means to be wise, and how we can strive to become more enlightened in our everyday lives. Wisdom is one of the grandest and oddest words out there, so lofty it doesn't sound like something we could ever be. But wisdom deserves to be rehabilitated and take its place among a host of other, more typical aspirations we might have; we should be as keen to end up wise as we are to be thin or prosperous. Wisdom is just a very beautiful word for a set of qualities of character that enable us to face reality with serenity, good humour, kindness and resilience. Crucially, being wise is not something we are ever born. It is a skill that can be learnt, in part, by knowing what it is we are aiming at. This is a guide to what wisdom can be and at the same time, a gentle and elegant visual reminder to remain as wise as we are at our best and calmest moments. Qualities examined: Realism, Politeness, Envy, Selfishness, Gratitude, Self-Acceptance, Resilience, Regrets, Sane Insanity, Forgiveness, Worldliness, Folly, Melancholy, Self-Knowledge, Scepticism, Simplicity, Vulnerability, Calm, Dishonesty. Quotes from the cards: ‘The wise have made their peace with the yawning gap between how they would ideally be and what they are actually like. They are not ashamed of themselves, and, therefore, don't have to lie or dissemble in front of others.' - On Self-Acceptance ‘The wise are, first and foremost, ‘realistic' about how difficult many things will be. Knowing that something difficult is being attempted doesn't rob the wise of ambitions, but it makes them more steadfast, calmer and less prone to panic about the problems that will invariably come their way.' - On Realism 'The wise take seriously the business of laughing at themselves. They hedge their pronouncements; they are sceptical in their conclusions. Their certainties are not as brittle as those of others.' - On Folly The School of Life is an organisation devoted to teaching us how to grow into happier, calmer, more successful people. Our retail offering is made up of a range of emotional wellbeing tools that can help us to better understand ourselves and the world. These items are elegant, surprising, often witty and, above all, useful. These are tools to help us make relationships work, build fulfilling careers, understand ourselves, nurture friendships, get the most out of culture and find calm.

7. The School of Life Small Pleasures Prompt Cards    The School of Life Small Pleasures Prompt Cards.
A set of cards which display beautiful photographs of life's small pleasures. The accompanying text, on the reverse of each card, works with the image to create a gentle reminder of those small pleasures which we sometimes overlook. Beauty in overlooked things. A lot of what makes life worth living isn't to do with great, heroic or costly things, but with modest pleasures that are all around us, largely unnoticed, available for almost nothing. It might be a beautiful sky, the smell of freshly cut grass, or a friend who understands how we feel. With beautiful photography and a few well-chosen words, this pack of cards draws us back to an appreciation of the overlooked ordinary, gently prompting us to remember that life is more precious and richer than we generally allow. The School of Life is an organisation devoted to teaching us how to grow into happier, calmer, more successful people. Our retail offering is made up of a range of emotional wellbeing tools that can help us to better understand ourselves and the world. These items are elegant, surprising, often witty and, above all, useful. These are tools to help us make relationships work, build fulfilling careers, understand ourselves, nurture friendships, get the most out of culture and find calm.

8. The School of Life Kindness Pocket Prompt Cards    The School of Life Kindness Pocket Prompt Cards.
60 prompt cards designed to help you find compassion and empathy. In theory, we are all interested in being kind. In practice, a lot gets in the way: tiredness, anger, bitterness. But a lack of kindness lies at the heart of so much of what goes wrong at work, in friendships, and in love. These Kindness Prompt Cards are designed to bring out our better natures. They present us with a series of thoughts that nurture our sympathy, our powers of compassion, and our appetite for forgiveness. They return us to who we always want to be and deep down already are: kind people. Example Cards: The kind person gives generously from a sense that they too will stand in need of kindness. Not right now, not over this, but in some other area. They know that self-righteousness is merely the result of a faulty memory: an inability to hold in mind, at moments when they are truly good and totally in the right, how often they have been deeply and definitively in the wrong. One fundamental path to remaining kind around people is the power to hold on, even in very challenging situations, to a distinction between what someone does, and what they meant to do. The modern world is very uncomfortable around the idea of a good person not succeeding. We would rather say that they weren't good than embrace a far more disturbing and less well-publicised thought: that the world is very unfair. Kind people always keep the notion of injustice in mind. How to Use the Cards You might... Read randomly through the cards to evoke your better self, always lurking in the wings. Keep one close at hand, on a desk or fridge, as a constant reminder to be kind. Give one to a friend or loved one to thank them for their kindness (or to gently remind them to be so). With illustrations by Erin Campbell, the design stresses the virtue of all things gentle and warm. Coloured with hues of peach, lilac, and cornflower blue, they give confidence and prestige to the kinder, softer sides of ourselves. The School of Life is an organisation devoted to teaching us how to grow into happier, calmer, more successful people. Our retail offering is made up of a range of emotional wellbeing tools that can help us to better understand ourselves and the world. These items are elegant, surprising, often witty and, above all, useful. These are tools to help us make relationships work, build fulfilling careers, understand ourselves, nurture friendships, get the most out of culture and find calm.

10. The School of Life Untranslatable Words Card Set    The School of Life Untranslatable Words Card Set.
A set of 20 cards which explain the meaning behind untranslatable words from around the world. We're hugely dependent on language to express how we really feel, and yet words often feel curiously vague or frustratingly inaccurate. There are lots of moods, needs and feelings that our own language has not yet properly pinned down. The perfect word - even if it comes from abroad - helps us explain ourselves to other people, and its existence quietly reassures us (and everyone else) that a state of mind is not really rare, just rarely spoken of. This set of cards define some of our favourite words from the world's languages and married them up with complementary images to create cards that bring some of our most important feelings into focus. We've created them to prompt greater reflection about the nature of language and the emotions. Example Cards DUENDE (Spanish): A heightened sense of emotion created by a moving piece of art. FORELSKET (Norwegian): The euphoric feeling at the beginning of love. We can't believe someone so perfect has wandered into our lives. They enhance and complete us. We might report: ‘I was overpowered by forelsket as our fingers interlaced...' YŪGEN (Japanese): Gives a name to a mood in which one feels that the universe as a whole possesses a mysterious and elusive beauty. Moonlight, snow on distant mountains, birds flying very high in the evening sky, and watching the sun rise over the ocean all feed this sensibility. We've designed these cards to reflect the excitement we find in encountering and old photograph or an object in a flea market or antique stall, one that feels familiar yet foreign and is thus infinitely evocative. How to Use the Cards You might... Turn to these cards to find a word that speaks most powerfully to your mood. Sort through and select a card to send to a friend as a memento of a particular feeling you associate with them. Play a game with your partner by taking it in turns to remember a time you may have felt or known the untranslatable word to be most true. The School of Life is an organisation devoted to teaching us how to grow into happier, calmer, more successful people. Our retail offering is made up of a range of emotional wellbeing tools that can help us to better understand ourselves and the world. These items are elegant, surprising, often witty and, above all, useful. These are tools to help us make relationships work, build fulfilling careers, understand ourselves, nurture friendships, get the most out of culture and find calm.
