Description

In many ways we have never been more ‘free’. We have the means to follow our dreams, set goals and live the life we choose. Yet mental health issues are sky-rocketing. Anxiety and depression are rife and more people feel overwhelmed by daily living. The 21st century increasingly seems to breed distraction, pressure and discontent. So, is all our so-called freedom nothing more than a trap of our own making? Are we, as the saying goes, simply decorating the cage that keeps us imprisoned? What can we do to change the status quo? 

The Freedom Trap is an inspiring call for clear thinking and a freshappraisal of what our freedoms mean and can become. This challenging,confronting and eye-opening look at what freedom actually is examines it fromphilosophical, psychological, political, social, legal, ethical, scientific, historical and neurological perspectives. Mindfulness expert and Associate Professor Craig Hassed explores how we can alleviate our burdens and find a life of peace, happiness and harmony — true
freedom.

With this guide, Dr Hassed aims to help people let go of their worries, regrets and material desires, and cut to the core of how to bring joy and contentment to our lives. Including practical thinking steps to help further your understanding ofwhat freedom means, this book is essential reading for anyone who hasever thought ‘there has to be more to life than this’.
