React or Respond?

I was watching The One Show last night and was struck by a comment made by Professor Steve Peters. It’s Mental Health Week and the Professor was talking about improving our mental health by training ourselves to “respond not react”. He also talks about Happy Lists and setting the tone for the evening in your household, by dealing with the day’s stresses on the way home rather than moaning as you come through the door. The programme is on the i player for another 29 days and the Professor talks through all of this in just 6 minutes or so (from minute 4). Well worth listening!
