editor’s letter

For the past 18 months TV host Amanda Gillies has been keeping a gratitude diary, recording the things she’s grateful for each day. In this month’s issue she talks to deputy editor Emma Clifton about how the practice has shifted her day-to-day experience of life and made it better. It’s a simple thing – writing down three reasons to feel grateful – but research shows it can have an enormous impact on our mental health, lowering stress levels, helping us to sleep better, giving us clarity on what we want more of in our lives, increasing our self-awareness, and giving us a sense of appreciation for what we have. What you write doesn’t have to be big or life-changing – a catch-up with a friend, or a beautiful sunset, walking the dog…

GIVEAWAY Welcome The Mister, the thrilling new romance from E. L. James, author of the phenomenal number one, best-selling Fifty Shades trilogy. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face. But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Thanks to Penguin Random House, we have 15 copies of The Mister, valued at $24 each, to give…

Letter of the month Mike McRoberts and his mum caught my attention at the supermarket checkout today. Then so did “The 10 questions to ask your mum”. My indignant thought was, “I can’t do that!” My mother died from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia 32 years ago, aged 64. But I put your magazine into my trolley, thinking, “Yes! I am so thankful I was always able to talk to her about health and so much more during our life together.” Kerryn Phelp’s article [about inherited health issues] reminded me of watching my mother sail through menopause and it being the same for me. It also reminded me that she had a mental breakdown in the 1950s when I was a child. I have never suffered from serious depression, for which I’m grateful.…

our monthly round-up in brief news bites

Doris Day remembered WITH THE PASSING of the original American sweetheart, Doris Day, the world has lost a light, her friends said. The actress leaves behind a legacy of joy, and compassion for the voiceless. The Calamity Jane star is best known for her musical talent and her comic timing in 1950s and 60s classics opposite Rock Hudson and Cary Grant – her sunny persona entertained a generation. But later in life she devoted herself to animal rights. The CEO of the Doris Day Animal Foundation, Dr T. Robert Bashara, paid tribute to the late star, saying: “She was truly a voice for the voiceless among us, a bright and beautiful champion for the cause of animal welfare.” STARS PUT THE AMP IN CAMP Feathers, sequins and glitter… The Met Gala always promises…
