WHAT: “How Not to Be Angry All the Time,” a timely new animated video for anyone who finds it difficult to control their emotions.
WHO: Unlikely education experts, The School of Life.
WHY WE CARE: As we’ve already mentioned today, 2016 was a . . . challenging year. It left a lot of angry people stewing in its wake. Now, as we trudge toward the inauguration of a historically unpopular new president, a perfectly timed animated short offers a balm to ease our exhausted hair-trigger tempers. “How Not to Be Angry All the Time” explains why some people let their anger get the best of them, and the answers is unexpected. Perhaps those of us who get the most angry are merely suffering from a surplus of hope. Who would have thought the key to increased happiness is decreased hopefulness?JB
