The Reality Slap

The Reality Slap

Sometimes it can feel like there’s a gap between what we plan or hope for in our lives and the reality we’re faced with – a so-called ‘reality gap’. Sometimes it’s a startling reality gap caused by the death of a loved one, for example, or a serious illness, a freak accident, divorce or the loss of a job. Sometimes it’s a little gentler: envy, loneliness, resentment, failure, disappointment or rejection. But whatever form your ‘reality gap’ may take, one thing’s for sure: it can cause us great distress.


Based on the scientifically proven mindfulness-based approach called ‘Acceptance and Commitment Therapy’ (ACT), this self-help book will teach you how to cope effectively when life hurts and you will learn not only how to survive life’s unexpected curve balls, but also how to thrive, despite them.
