How to Enjoy Life Classes | The School of Life

How To Enjoy Life

  • Emotional Education
  • Leisure
  • Self-Knowledge
We are often so aware of what is missing from our lives that we fail to pause and notice what has already gone right or not yet gone wrong. We see so much every day without properly noticing it; we are so good at letting our ambitions for the future rob us of the joys of the present.

What is ‘How to Enjoy Life?’

This is a class about appreciation and becoming better at discovering. It’s a class about about learning how properly to live rather than simply going through the motions. Along the way, we learn to connect, to take joy in the sky, to feel less guilty about enjoying the good times – and to remember what we can legitimately smile about, even in the most challenging of eras.
