In Notes on a Nervous Planet, Matt Haig comes through once again with the mental health advice we all need. This time he focuses on how modern life fuels our anxiety and unhappiness, largely stemming from our use of technology. The frequency with which we check our phones for notifications and scroll through news feeds has negatively impacted our health in ways we do not always realize, from our quality of sleep to our levels of anxiety and feelings dread. We are overwhelmed by information, most of which inspires fear or sadness. Haig reminds us to take a step back and regulate our intake in order to save our lives. His writing style makes this a quick and easy read that is full of helpful information on how to survive our times.
