The School of Life is dedicated to teaching individuals how to lead a more fulfilled life. Their products offer insights in the key ingredients of emotional well-being: how to form good relationships, minimize anxiety, acquire confidence and connect with friends.
In theory, we are all interested in being kind. In practice, a lot gets in the way: tiredness, anger, bitterness. But a lack of kindness lies at the heart of so much of what goes wrong at work, in friendships, and in love.
Kindness Prompt Cards are designed to bring out our better natures. They present thoughts that nurture sympathy, the powers of compassion, and an appetite for forgiveness. For example:
"One fundamental path to remaining kind around people is the power to hold on, even in very challenging situations, to a distinction between what someone does, and what they meant to do."
"The modern world is very uncomfortable around the idea of a good person not succeeding. We would rather say that they weren’t good than embrace a far more disturbing thought: that the world is very unfair. Kind people always keep the notion of injustice in mind."
With illustrations by Erin Campbell, the design stresses the virtue of all things gentle and warm. Colored with hues of peach, lilac, and cornflower blue, they celebrate the kinder, softer sides of ourselves.
