Book: The Resilience Project; Finding Happiness Through Gratitude Empathy & Mindfulness by Hugh Van Cuylenburg

Luke’s Reflection: Van Cuylenburg’s personal and professional anecdotes are so timely in the midst of our even changing circumstances and particularly as we head into the Christmas season. The Resilience Project captures for me a positive recipe for resetting perspective through the creative weaving of insights into the impacts of social media, mental health challenges and life in a rapidly changing world. The author uses his stories of a cricketing pursuits, teaching adventures and personal relationships here and abroad to hone the readers focus on the true importance of gratitude, empathy and mindfulness. Practical ‘take aways’ include – Practice gratitude; focusing on the positives and things you have – Cultivate empathy; be kind to others – Be mindful; take time to focus on the present moment.
