Sort your life out! If you hear that a lot, it could be time to seek out help. But where to start? The School of Life could be a good bet. At this school, algebra is out, and the curriculum is focused on emotional intelligence achieved through culture, whether it be art, philosophy, psychology or literature. Learn how to be happy and fulfilled, how to navigate the tricky waters of relationships, how to deal with the past, and look to the future. Based in London, the group runs workshops and therapy groups around the world, publishes books, and has a spangly new range of natty objects available from the Southbank Centre that can help you on your way.
We all need to take a timeout now and then, but shouldn’t we make it a more regular and constructive activity? Check out the 15 Minutes hourglass, which will ensure you give enough consideration to the things that really matter. Or the Emotional Baggage Tote; most people have baggage, so why not carry it in style? The Japanese style Virtue Dolls are an ideal gift. A reminder of what’s important, there’s one each for Calm, Bravery and Kindness. And finally, The Toolkit for Relationships offers practical ways to jumpstart communication and get you both back on the same page. No more excuses, sort yourselves out!
