Yesterday's Daily Bell
For most of us, the memory of  pleasant events gets pushed aside fairly quickly as new events crowd in. So when you like what's happening, be present for it so as to get the most from the experience. Why seek good experiences and not appreciate them while they're going on?

Try: When you spot yourself enjoying something today, remind yourself that ‘this will be forgotten - appreciate it now.’

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.

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
