British adults today are more self-obsessed and worry more about their daily lives than those who lived through the Blitz, a new book claims.
This is despite the fact they don’t have to worry about bombs, blackouts and rationing, says psychologist Graham Price.
He adds that today’s adults spend twice as much time fretting about their lives as those who lived through the Blitz.
The book, The Promise, also claims that Britons have forgotten how to ‘look on the bright side of life’.
Mr Price suggests the poster, Keep Calm and Carry On, would have worked during the Second World War but has less effect today, despite the slogan’s recent resurrection.
