Discover the Joy: The Friendly Bench CIC Featured in 'The Little Book of Sanuk'

We're absolutely delighted to share some exciting news with our Friendly Bench community! Lyndsey and The Friendly Bench CIC have been featured in a wonderful book called "The Little Book of Sanuk: The Thai Secret to a More Joyful Life" by Karen Sinotok.

In this beautiful book, Sinotok explores the concept of Sanuk, a Thai word that encapsulates the idea of finding joy and pleasure in all aspects of life. For the Thai people, Sanuk is more than just having fun; it's about infusing daily routines with happiness and contentment. As they say, if it's not Sanuk, it's not worth doing.

Thailand, often dubbed The Land of Smiles, embodies this ethos of finding joy in the little things. From simple interactions with neighbours to sharing laughs with friends, the Thai lifestyle emphasises the importance of embracing fun and pleasure in our daily lives.

Research has shown that cultivating a positive outlook can significantly impact our health and well-being. Approaching life with optimism and a glass-half-full attitude not only helps us live longer but also enhances our overall quality of life.

Lyndsey's journey with The Friendly Bench perfectly embodies the spirit of Sanuk. From a moment of inspiration to creating vibrant community spaces across the country, The Friendly Bench demonstrates the power of individuals to make a positive difference in their communities and beyond.

We're honoured to be featured in this inspiring book, which showcases how embracing Sanuk can lead to a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life.

Mark your calendars for June 6, 2024, when the book will be released and join us in discovering the secrets to a more joyful life!
