Gratitude benefits wellbeing. The quality of gratitude is in you, not in what you are grateful for. It can be for a flower in a window box or the smell of coffee - it doesn’t have to be for something big. Either way, it’s good for you.

Try: Think of some small, unimportant things you can be grateful for right now and try to feel the sensation of gratitude.

Handling climate Anxiety 
Yesterday's Daily Bell
Each of us has, in our mind, a harsh critic who attacks us over everything from how we live our life to forgetting to buy milk. In practising self-compassion we try to listen to the good friend in our mind, not the harsh critic. The good friend can encourage and comfort us and can put us right in a supportive way.

Try: Next time you feel disappointed in yourself over something, ask what a good friend would say to you.

New book on the way: Acceptance - Create Change and Move Forward
I am very pleased to say that my new book, Acceptance - create change and move forward, will be published next March by Yellow Kite Books. As the title suggests, acceptance clears a space for movement either regarding what we've accepted or by giving us space for other activities. Chapter headings include: Accepting Uncertainty; Accepting Our Bodies, Sexuality and Gender; Acceptance and relationships, during and after;Acceptance In Conflict; The Acceptance Dynamic.

How I use the Daily Bell
"The daily bell sets me up for the day.   I read it on waking and it helps me to start my day in a positive, kind, compassionate way.   I remind myself all the time about what I read. It is a great help in self regulation." KL
