One of the bonuses of being in a big open-plan office is that you get to sit near other magazine teams. And the tl! team is lucky enough to sit next to the talented crew who create Men’s Health magazine. A couple of issues ago, they featured TV host, Osher Gϋnsberg, who some readers probably know from the The Bachelor and The Bachelorette TV series. Osher is a really interesting guy and last week we were lucky enough to have him speak to everyone in our office about his new book, Back, After the Break, and his experience with mental illness. He spoke about how on the outside, at the height of his fame, his life looked amazing. But inside, he was struggling and trying to self-medicate with alcohol, which is a familiar story. He told us there were many things that helped with his eventual recovery. But the one that really stuck with me was how much practising gratitude was part of it. Every morning Osher writes a list of things he is grateful for. On days when things are going badly, he’ll write as many as 20. The really good news is that it’s something we can all do and it works! ‘It’s not some airy-fairy dream-catcher idea,’ says Osher. ‘There’s numerous hard-science studies that prove gratitude is a positive drug-free intervention when it comes to mood.’ One thing I’m grateful for this week is that tl!’ s very own psychics, Michelle and Ezio De Angelis have given us a guide to being grateful (page 72). I’d love to hear if you practice gratefulness and the difference it makes in your life. And if you’ve never actually tried it, why not give it a go. Take a few minutes to stop, think and write. Let’s share the love!
