Over the past three years, Jay Shetty has become a favourite in the hearts and minds of millions of people worldwide. One of his clips was the most watched video on Facebook last year, with over 360 million views.

When little things have big impacts. This book is for anyone who feels that they''re sleepwalking through life, looking for answers to challenging emotions and the practical tools to begin living the life they want.
''How are you really feeling? A bit blah, meh or simply ''I don''t actually know''. If this is your honest, knot-in-the-throat response, take a moment - breathe - and let me reassure you that it''s not you, it''s what''s happened to you over the years. You can''t quite put your finger on it, but somehow you just don''t feel like you''re thriving or truly participating in your own life.
This is the result of a build-up of life''s scrapes, papercuts and bruises that have left you feeling simply ''not ok''. Emotional illiteracy, microaggressions, challenging familial relationships, toxic positivity and gaslighting are some examples of what I call ''Tiny T'' trauma - the impact of which often leads to problems such as high-functioning anxiety, languishing, perfectionism, comfort eating and sleep disturbance, to name but a few.
We have been fooled into believing that ''Tiny T'' trauma doesn''t matter. There always seem to be huge, intractable problems in the world, so we tend to overlook those small, everyday injuries that drill down to your core. This leaves us with an undercurrent of constant melancholy and niggling pinpricks of anxiety, all wrapped up in the film of other people''s Insta-perfect lives.
But life doesn''t have to be experienced in this suffocating way; we owe it to ourselves to develop Awareness, Acceptance, and take Action on our Tiny T trauma, no matter how ''small'', and to start living every day as we deserve.''

In this ground-breaking book, Dr. Michaeleen Doucleff looks back to our ancestors for solutions to our failing modern-day parenting theories.
When Dr. Michaeleen Doucleff became a mother, she examined the studies behind modern parenting guidance and found that the evidence was frustratingly limited, and the conclusions often ineffective. She began to wonder if an opposite approach was needed - one founded on traditional wisdom, like the knowledge and experience passed down over hundreds, even thousands, of years within ancient cultures.
With her young daughter in tow, she travelled across the world to observe and practice parenting strategies alongside families in three of the world''s most venerable communities: Maya families in Mexico, Inuit families above the Arctic Circle, and Hadza families in Tanzania.
Dr. Doucleff soon learned that these cultures don''t have the same problems with children that Western parents do. Most strikingly, parents build a relationship with young children that is vastly different from the one many Western parents develop, built on co-operation instead of control; trust instead of fear; and personalized needs instead of standardized development milestones.
In Hunt, Gather, Parent , Doucleff introduces us to families where parents help little ones learn to control their emotions and reduce tantrums by the parents themselves controlling their own frustrations; foster self-sufficiency by safely giving kids the autonomy to manage risks and explore their limits; and motivate children to help with chores without using bribes or threats. Doucleff also talks to psychologists, neuroscientists, anthropologists, and sociologists and explains how the tools and tips can impact children''s mental health and development. . Packed with practical takeaways, Hunt, Gather, Parent helps us rethink the ways we relate to our children, and reveals a universal parenting paradigm adapted for modern American families.
