Acts of everyday kindness can boost your mood and immunity, lower blood pressure, ease anxiety, slow the ageing process, improve the quality of your relationships (including the one you have with yourself) and give you a sense of deep meaning and purpose.
100 Ways to be Kind is a road map of practical, simple and immediately actionable ways to be kind including how to be kinder to yourself, to others and to nature.
Theresa debunks the damaging myth that being kind is a weakness and shows that it is not anger or aggression that brings out our true inner grit, but kindness.
Science has proven that there are powerful, potentially lifesaving, reasons to be kind. The kinder you are, the more likely you are to experience happiness.
Kindness is the simple and scientifically proven remedy that everyone needs to administer right now. So, if you want to harness the power of kindness to transform your life and help save the world at the same time but aren’t quite sure how - this book is for you.
Read what everyone is saying about Theresa Cheung:
‘Theresa Cheung provides a timely guide for individuals, who feel life deeply, to take a step back, and reflect upon sensitivity and how it fits in the modern world’s emotion paradigm…It reminded me there are steps I can use in my life to increase my self-care. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to explore sensitivity in themselves or others.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars
‘A thorough explanation of the highly sensitive individual, the problems they need to wrestle with in their day-to-day life and their amazing gifts they can deploy at work and at home. Once the book talked us through these basic ideas, it then moves on to offering solutions to this high sensitivity, and to enjoying its pros rather than dealing with its cons.’ Affair With Psychology, 5 stars
‘I found this book absolutely fascinating. As someone who has been told to "toughen up" a lot I could relate to it so much. I really feel like this book has given me some great strategies for both me and my very sensitive 4-year-old son. Fantastic and recommended to anyone who feels it could help them.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars
‘Looking at individual case studies really resonated with me. It is helpful on many levels from the identifying traits of being sensitive to acknowledging what people have said to you since a child. It makes you see the positives of being sensitive instead of the negatives. Unlike some psychology books it is very accessible and friendly and non-judgemental.’ Karen Reads and Recommends
‘The aim of The Sensitivity Code is to help gentle people recognise their own worth. To give them the coping tools to manage emotions and navigate insensitive environments. To help sensitive people identify the red flags of toxic relationships. It’s truly helped me through the past few tricky weeks. Thank you.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

An absolute must-have parenting guide to raising girls in the 21st century.
'There can be no keener revelation of a country's soul than the way it treats its children.' Nelson Mandela
Childhood, as a stage in human development, has been steadily eroded. Children today are introduced to 21st-century adult values and behaviour at an increasingly early age, long before they are developmentally ready to cope with them. We expend immense time and effort attending to their material needs while simultaneously neglecting their developmental needs.
In this important polemic, Sue Palmer believes that if we do not get a grip on this problem soon, the increase in developmental disorders, behavioural difficulties and mental health problems recorded by experts over recent decades will soon spiral out of control.
Sue discusses challenges faced in the 21st century including:
-the problems facing parents in an age of materialism
-the way gender wars have intensified those problems
-the debate about the 'female brain'
-the reasons why contemporary culture can be so damaging for children, especially girls
-the challenges involved in detoxifying family life
Every parent, grandparent, teacher and carer of girls needs to read this book.
