We all want to be happy in life and The Resilience Project shows you how practicing gratitude, empathy and mindfulness can help you become more happy!

Schools, corporate groups and the biggest sporting teams in the country including AFL and NRL clubs, the Australian Diamonds and the Australian Cricket Team are all practicing the principles of The Resilience Project.

After spending time volunteering in an Indian village former teacher Hugh van Cuylenburg was inspired to create The Resilience Project, which educates Australian parents, children and organisations about the importance of gratitude, empathy (compassion) and mindfulness. “In this desert community, there was no running water, no electricity and no beds; everyone slept on the floor,” Hugh says. “Despite the fact these people had very little to call their own, I was continually blown away by how happy they were.”

The Resilience Project delivers programs to a range of organisations including elite sporting clubs and primary and secondary schools. In addition to the presentations schools receive they have the opportunity to complete a curriculum specifically designed to focus on what you have as opposed to what you don’t have, understanding the benefits of helping others as well as the importance of being healthy and active.

Great but needs variety

Downloaded after listening to the great speech made by the developer at my club. Love the journal and writing down thoughts and recording emotions. However the meditations is where it’s lacking. Needs more to keep it interesting and not just the same thing every few days. Also would be nice to go in and listen to one if you wanted to not just as part of daily journal

Easy fixes to make much better

The app doesn’t live up to the stellar heights of the audio book. Not clear on 1st section if you do all three in that section or if you do one at a time. Insert photo doesn’t allow you to choose photos from whole album. The empathy section was just weird and talked about doing a screen grab but nothing about what to write about and why would you send a screw grab to someone else. The meditation section was again super unclear. I chose a 9 minute with partner and it was about getting home from work and understanding each other. The headline doesn’t tell you this and it just wasted 9 minutes of my life and frustrated me because the whole experience was so unprofessional compared to the book. I work in Marketing and all I can say is that this App is really bad for your brand. These things are easy to fix but at the moment the App makes your whole product come across as unprofessional and therefore unreliable. I wish I just stuck with the book. Please fix this.

Great app... but meditation :-/

I love this app, am using it daily while I wait for my book to arrive in the mail. The meditation can be improved a tad boring. And also doesn’t work with headphones, have tried AirPods and plug in apple headphones... still only comes through the speaker. I have iPhone 11 that is up to date with software so believe it’s in the app and not the phone. Happily using CALM as my go to meditation app. Regardless would recommend this app in a heartbeat
