1 Benefits of telling your story. This neat short discussion of the importance of writing your story which got me thinking how in much of my work I encourage people to list their thoughts and even better describe some of those thoughts that seem to create difficulties in order that it invites a different perspective.

2 Teaching emotional intelligence. All the very best with this programme that encouragers children in school to manage their emotions more effectively. Much of my CBT work with children often land on the difficulties of staying with and processing complex feelings as they arise.

3 Benefits of looking after each other. A fascinating article on the search of happiness could well involve caring for other people or the better treatment of others. The work of both Kahnemann (“Thinking Fast and Slow”) and Haidt are mentioned and this has got me hunting down their work.
