The School of Life's Calm Prompt Cards are designed to help you find perspective on life's setbacks. These 60 cards contain ideas and observations to help us handle every day temptations that make us lose our tempers: the behaviour of partners, colleagues, childern — and computers. Distractions, worries and fears arise which often leave us feeling stressed and unsettled. Through ironic humour, consoling cultural references, and a small amount of pessimistic wisdom, these cards help to summon up our best and calmest selves.

At Misc-store Amsterdam we recommend using these prompt cards together with The Calm Workbook — to triumph over moments of exasperation and emotional distress.

All prices are shown including 21% (NL VAT rate); if your country’s VAT rate different, the prices will change accordingly during checkout.

EXAMPLE
Postalco One Year Wall Calendar €20

PLEASE NOTE
- This only happens after your shipping address has been filled out.
Do not use any of the Express Checkout buttons in the cart (Paypal, Apple Pay, Google Pay or Shop Pay): this skips the checkout process & therefor the VAT cannot be deducted by the system.
- Import fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

About The School of Life

The School of Life at Misc-store Amsterdam

Alain de Botton founded The School of Life in 2008. His aim was to make philosophy — long seen as the inaccessible, inauthentic stuff of academies and archives — a functional aspect of modern life. The care with which ancient philosophers thought about their lives remains a valuable antidote to the generalised anxiety of our era.


The school thus posits that ideas of Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics are as relevant to us today as they were in ancient Greece. Even if Epicurus never had social media burnout, understanding his thinking can lead us to a healthier relationship with our phones — and by extension, with one another.

Developing emotional intelligence in the workplace
The working world can feel, at times, to operate with a dog-eat-dog intensity. We are often made to feel anxious or powerless by our jobs. Our colleagues can irritate or undermine, our bosses can demand too much while giving too little, our clients can be rude and difficult to please, and our assets are never quite liquid enough. So it goes.

We began stocking The School of Life’s series on work, gratitude and pleasure as a way of thinking through these issues. We admire these series for their capacity to stimulate reflection, and their ability to give a new perspective on age old problems. At its core, it is a set of strategies for finding meaning in the modern world.

The School of Life has had its own corner in our Amsterdam shop, and we’re proud to be one of their stockists in the Netherlands. You can browse our selection in store or on our web shop online.
