The modern world


The modern world is a very different place from the world that existed 50 years ago. Our knowledge of ourselves and our universe has increased, infrastructures have become globalized and technological developments have revolutionized the way we communicate with each other.

 

This has left each of us with an increasingly complex world to deal with in our daily lives, and this complexity can affect us in a number of ways – some of which may be detrimental to our well-being, and which we may not even have fully acknowledged.

 

Below are some resources to help you understand and deal with various aspects of the modern world.
