Matt Haig: Notes on a Nervous Planet

Rates of stress and anxiety are rising. A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives. We are more connected, yet feel more alone. And we are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index.

– How can we stay sane on a planet that makes us mad?
– How do we stay human in a technological world?
– How do we feel happy when we are encouraged to be anxious?

After experiencing years of anxiety and panic attacks, these questions became urgent matters of life and death for Matt Haig. And he began to look for the link between what he felt and the world around him.

Notes on a Nervous Planet is a personal and vital look at how to feel happy, human and whole in the 21st century.

Matt Haig: Notes on a Nervous Planet

Számomra Matt Haig könyvei a mentális egészségről nagyon sokat jelentenek. Lehet azért is, mert elképesztően hasonló dolgokat élt át a szorongással, mint én is. Mivel hasonló gondokkal küzdünk, ezért az ő iránymutatása nagyon sokat jelent számomra. Ez a könyv is tele van bölcsességgel, könnyed iránymutatással, semmi tuti megoldással (mert az nem létezik), egyszerű tapasztalatokkal. Kék éggel és naplementével. Komolyan, mindenkinek ajánlom :)

Matt Haig: Notes on a Nervous Planet

A klisék sokszor nem véletlenül klisék, néha még olvasni is jól esik őket. Hiába van tisztában az ember a legtöbb dologgal, ami ebben a könyvben felmerül, mégis jó néha emlékeztetni magunkat rájuk. Emberek vagyunk, akik nem tökéletesek, a jövő bizonytalan, a mostban kell jelen lenni és boldognak lenni.

Most people sleep with their phone by the bed because they've replaced alarm clocks. Most nights I have the phone by the bed. My parents have their phones by the bed. Everyone I know has their phones by their bed. Maybe one day our beds will be our phones.

Even if isn't okay, if it's a thing you can't control, don't try to control it.

Do not compare the worst bits of your life with the best bits of other people's.

Change doesn't just happen by focusing on the place you want to escape. It happens by focusing on where you want to reach. Boost the good guys, don't just knock the bad guys.

Accept yourself. If you can't be happy as yourself, at least accept yourself as you are right now. You can't change yourself if you don't know yourself.

That is the biggest paradox, I think, about the modern world. We are all connected to each other but we often feel shut out. The increasing overload and complexity of modern life can be isolating.

Don't fix yourself down. Don't be blinded by the connotations of you name, gender, nationality, sexuality or Facebook profile. Be more than a date to be harvested. 'When II let go of what I am' . said the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, 'I become what I might be.'

An ode to social media

When anger trawls the internet,
Looking for a hook;
It's time to disconnect,
And go and read a book.

52. oldal, 6. Internet anxieties

Accept feelings. And accept that they are just that: feelings.
