An inspirational mental health book about hope for women and men--how to look for it, act on it, and build it into a lifelong habit that will allow us to focus on the positives and the possibilities no matter what challenges life throws at us.

Author, performer, and activist, Bernadette Russell, has made it her life's mission to teach the practice of hope. Filled with practical exercises, questions to consider, revealing research, timeless philosophy, and tales of triumph over adversity, this uplifting, motivational, and essential toolkit will give you all you need to live and to act with renewed hope for self-compassion and for a more compassionate world. It shows us the places we can look for hope--in nature, art, the kindness of strangers, our own actions--and ways to keep it alive through moments of adversity. It begins with how we find hope in ourselves, and then shines a light on how we can embrace and develop hope in our communities, the wider world, and in our future.
