The experts have spoken — developing emotional intelligence can lead to a calmer, wiser and more fulfilled life. This mantra is at the heart of THE SCHOOL OF LIFE and its wide-ranging lessons offering advice on pertinent and often complex life issues. Co-founded in 2008 by acclaimed philosopher Alain de Botton, the thought-provoking educational organisation is headquartered in London and has outposts scattered around the world offering courses, therapy, books and helpful lifestyle products.
The idea is to choose a key aspect of your life to improve — think relationships, work, self-knowledge, calmness, sociability and leisure — and then draw on the school’s eclectic and insightful range of tools and suggestions. We’ve chosen a few of our favourite pieces of wisdom and have done what we do best — curated the most relevant ones.
