Visit mood.org.au to read stories about the people they have helped and order some tea to be delivered to friends and family - and yourself while you’re there!
This week – Monday 11 October until Sunday 17 October – we’re giving you the chance to WIN 1 of 5 packs of 'Get On Up'. A fruity hit with a spicy kick, this blend includes Siberian ginseng to promote mental alertness and stimulate blood flow, and lemon balm to help with anxiety.

We asked our most bookish people what they’d would choose to read while sipping on the zingy pineapple and cinnamon flavours of ‘Get On Up’ – check out their recommendations below.
The Other Side of Beautiful
by Kim Lock
"The Other Side of Beautiful is the story of Mercy Blain and her ‘break through’ from a nervous breakdown. Although Kim Lock leaves no doubt in the reader’s mind as to how difficult it is to cope in such a situation, she also demonstrates the joy in being able to re-engage in life. Whilst the reader is taken on a journey from Adelaide to Darwin with Mercy and her sausage dog, Wasabi, the author also cleverly takes the reader on the journey from Mercy’s ‘break down’ to her ‘break through’."

"Our current Fiction Book of the Month, Wild Abandon is a headlong tumble through the falling world of end-days capitalism, a haunting, hyperreal snapshot of our own strange times and what it means to be a tourist, or indeed a human, within them. It is a breathtaking new novel from a Stella Prize-winning author.
by Matthew McConaughey

It's a love letter. To life.
It's also a guide to catching more greenlights-and to realising that the yellows and reds eventually turn green too.
