October 10 was World Mental Health Day. For many people, one barrier to better mental health is the absence of hope. Today we're sharing an exclusive clip from an audiobook meant to inspire you to feel hope again: The Book of Hope by Jane Goodall.
October 10, 2021 was World Mental Health Day. It goes without saying that we’ve been living through a difficult time for mental health. Some of us have felt helpless or hopeless.
That’s why today, instead of a regular episode of Savvy Psychologist, we're sharing a special audio excerpt focusing on hope, brought to you by our colleagues at Macmillan Audio. This excerpt comes from the brand-new audiobook The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times by Jane Goodall and Douglas Abrams.
In this audiobook, you’ll hear about Jane Goodall’s philosophy of hope. She discusses how she copes with all the discouragement and despair she’s encountered in her lifetime, from World War II to climate change, in order to remain hopeful. You'll also hear why she believes hope is an essential tool in her work for environmental justice.
Click the red audio player above to hear this excerpt from the introduction to the audiobook, read by Jane Goodall herself.
If you like what you hear, you can pick up a copy of The Book of Hope wherever books or audiobooks are sold.
