How to worry less in midlife, with Brigid Delaney

Are you a worrier? Or perhaps prone to mood swings? You might learn a thing or two from the ancient Stoic philosophers, says journalist Brigid Delaney. Listen in as Brigid talks Liz through the core principles and values of Stoicism, how to achieve an enduring tranquillity known as Ataraxia, and simple ways to lead a more calm and drama-free life.

Liz and Brigid also discuss why dizzying highs often mean devastating lows (and how we can aim for a more moderate middle ground), plus other helpful exercises practiced by Stoic philosophers, such as negative visualisation and journaling.
