Byron Bay is in the grip of a gratitude pandemic as the region’s residents prepare to celebrate World Gratitude Day.

To raise awareness of the occasion, The Farm Byron Bay has built a ‘gratitude bench’. Uplift Connect has been filming locals coming and sitting on the bench and taking about what they’re grateful for.

Psychologist and yoga teacher Lauren Tober, who started her project Capturing Gratitude last year, explains why she is so keen to focus on Byron Bay.

‘I’m dedicating the 30 days of gratitude to Byron Bay, my hometown.  I love the shire, and I’m so grateful for call it my home.’

Lauren has interviewed inspiring locals from the area, including Tommy Franklin, Mandy Nolan, Simon Richardson, Ash Grunwald, Toni Childs, Dr Oscar Serralach and more.

‘I’ve collated their interviews into an eBook called The Gratitude Interviews, and I’m giving it away free when people sign up to the Capturing Gratitude project,’ she said.

It costs nothing, except for your time.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Climate Change, Coal and the Flushing Toilet

Sometimes I wonder why people seem to have stopped caring about climate change. Is it because it’s too big? Is it because we have a Prime Minister who is in a dirty love triangle with coal and gas? Or is it the convenience of the flushing toilet?
