Hugh van Cuylenburg was a primary school teacher volunteering in northern India when he had a life-changing realisation: despite the poverty and privations the children he taught faced, they appeared to be the happiest kids he had ever come across. By contrast, back in Australia Hugh knew that all too many children struggled with depression, social anxieties and mental illness. His own little sister had been ravaged by anorexia nervosa. How was it that young people he knew at home, who had food, shelter, friends and a lovely family, struggled with their mental health, while these impoverished kids seemed so contented and resilient? He set about finding the answer and in time came to recognise the key traits and behaviours these children possessed were gratitude, empathy and mindfulness. In the ensuing years Hugh worked tirelessly to study and share this revelation with the world. He launched the Resilience Project, which has become part of the curriculum in many schools and he tours Australia talking to parents, educators, corporations, CEOs and sporting elite. Now, with the same blend of humour, poignancy and clear-eyed insight that The Resilience Project is renowned for, Hugh explains how we can all get the necessary tools to live a happier, more contented and fulfilling life.
