We probably all know people who struggle with depression and how much that struggle can live in the shadows of our culture.
Here’s a fabulous new resource that can help people unlock the five natural anti-depressants in the brain: mindfulness, compassion, purpose, play, and developing confidence.
It’s a new book by my colleague Elisha Goldstein, PhD, Uncovering Happiness: Overcoming Depression with Mindfulness and Self-Compassion. In it, Elisha provides many practical cutting-edge techniques that help us break negative habit loops, build new neural structures, and create not only healing and resilience but a deeper, more enduring happiness.
The book integrates the findings of hundreds of academic studies and dozens of interviews with mindfulness teachers, psychologists, neuroscientists and researchers. There are also stories of many people who have used these teachings to find their personal pathway to healing.
This book is profound, playful and practical. At its core, this book contains a persuasive argument for hope: Having experienced bouts of anxiety, depression or being just down in the dumps doesn’t mean you have to suffer from it in the future. As Elisha says, “Science and thousands of people’s experience are showing that seven simple elements can help us take back control of our minds, our moods and our lives.”
I don’t normally focus on promotional offers in these posts, but this one might be worth checking out. If you pre-order a copy now, before the book comes out on January 27th, and you can receive the free bonus of Dr. Goldstein’s “Uncovering Happiness Training” – A 90 Minute presentation that take you step-by-step through the elements of Uncovering Happiness, visit here.
The “Uncovering Happiness Training” will be a live training where you can interact with Dr. Goldstein to give you the theory, science and practice behind Uncovering Happiness and if you miss any of them you will own them forever.
