    With a little help from a monk (who tells us how our mind works) and a neuroscientist (who tells us how our brain works), Ruby Wax answers every question you've ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion. Filled with witty anecdotes from Ruby's own life, and backed up by smart science and practical mindfulness exercises, How to be Human is the only manual you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you've upgraded your iPhone.

    Five hundred years ago no one died of stress: we have invented this concept, and now we let it rule us. Rest has become a dirty word, and our idea of satisfaction is answering the last email. We're sleepwalking through our own lives. Ruby Wax shows us how to wake up from this stupor with a scientific solution to modern problems: mindfulness.

    Ruby Wax - comedian, writer and mental health campaigner - shows us how our minds can jeopardize our sanity. With her own periods of depression and now a Masters from Oxford in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy to draw from, she explains how our busy, chattering, self-critical thoughts drive us to anxiety and stress. If we are to break the cycle, we need to understand how our brains work, rewire our thinking and find calm in a frenetic world.

    Stress ist heute allgegenwärtig und beeinflusst unseren Körper und unsere Psyche auf alarmierende Weise. Wir können gleichzeitig telefonieren und E-Mails schreiben, doch wie wir auf uns selbst achten und auf unser Inneres hören, haben wir verlernt. Ruby Wax rät uns zu einem wirkungsvollen Gegenmittel: Achtsamkeit. Mit Witz und Charme erklärt sie, dass Achtsamkeit nicht bedeutet, dass man sein Geschirr begrüßen muss, bevor man es abwäscht. Achtsamkeit bedeutet vielmehr, Stress und Druck zu reduzieren, indem wir Kleinigkeiten in unserem Alltag verändern und Gefühle und Gedanken wirklich wahrnehmen.
