How to Be Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable: 43 Weird & Wonderful Ways to Build a Strong Resilient Mindset (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Drawing on the theoretical roots of the Stoics, Buddhism, popular psychology and CBT, Ben has created a unique programme that anyone can follow. Join Ben on his journey from anxious mess to back in control. This book is packed with fun and practical challenges that readers can try themselves, all in the name of self-improvement! Thanks to having undertaken these challenges himself, Ben now has an unusual selection of hobbies, a host of interesting new skills, some fantastic dinner party stories and plenty of wonderful experiences... and most importantly he now feels calmer, healthier, happier and more at peace.Split into three types of activity - mental, physical and skilful - the challenges range from climbing a mountain to sleeping on a beach in a bivvy bag in a storm to having a conversation in Japanese. Follow Ben in learning how to pick a lock, how to solve a Rubik's Cube in under a minute and how to memorize the order of a deck of cards after seeing it only once (the ultimate party trick). Along the way, he's eaten some repulsive insects, whilst also creating a new morning routine that freed up the time to write this book. Try out Ben's challenges ... or create some of your own, with the help of the challenge tracker!
