✍️ Oliver Burkeman

In "The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking," you'll learn that happiness isn't always achieved through positive thinking.

Instead, he suggests accepting uncertainty, failure, and doubt and seeing them as part of life. You'll learn about philosophies and techniques, such as stoicism and meditation, that help you deal with negative experiences. Instead of constantly chasing happiness, you'll learn how to live a more fulfilling and satisfying life by embracing the negative.
