Ruby Wax comes to Jarrold
We were excited to welcome the fabulous Ruby Wax into store to showcase her new book 'A mindfulness guide to the frazzled' on Monday 11th January. We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to sit down with Ruby and ask some questions so we decided to put this out to our amazing Facebook and Twitter followers.
We got a fantastic response and you can read the questions and answers below.
What would be your number one tip for someone struggling from anxiety?
"I would recommend to go somewhere quiet and remove yourself from the stress. Then focus on something simple and one of your senses like the your feet touching the floor to take your mind off the feeling of anxiety and stress."
How did it feel to be awarded an OBE for all of your hard work?
If you could give your younger self one bit of advice, what would it be?
"It will get better. One day you will be awarded an OBE."
Do you think that stress and depression as emotions will increase or decrease through evolution and social influences?
"Yes, stress and depression will continue to grow as things become more complicated in the world, unless we become active in training our brains to be more aware of our emotions."
