Depression

A practical guide

By Harry Barry

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

A practical guide to understanding and coping with depression.

A practical, four step programme to help you understand and cope with depression.

As many as 1 in 4 British people have depression at any one time, and despite being so prevalent in our lives and communities, there is still lingering reluctance to talk about depression and its effects. In Depression: A practical guide, Dr Barry is determined to break the silence and provide practical advice to those suffering from depression as well as their families and friends.

Dr Barry reveals a simple, four step programme to deal with depression, from beginning the journey, how to feel better, how to get better and how to stay well. He explores holistic approaches involving lifestyle as well as drug therapy, talk therapy (particularly CBT) and mindfulness.

Previously published as Flagging Depression, this edition has been fully revised and updated.

This is not just a book about depression
or one which enhances knowledge about the topic; it is a practical
guide to understanding and managing this complex area of mental
distress. It is skillfully written in a caring, meaningful and supportive
style, which reveals the significant professional background of Dr
Barry in this field.

If I were to recommend just one book to read on depression, it
would be this.

Dominique Loreau

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERDrawing on her 25 years spent in Japan, Dominique applies her principle of 'less is more' to how we organise our daily lives. She explores how lists are powerful and highly efficient tools that can improve our everyday lives, particularly with our ever-growing lack of time. With Dominique's advice and techniques, we learn how to organise our daily routines, to clear and liberate our minds allowing for the time and place to enrich our inner selves. Dominique explains how list-making helps us to keep our physical spaces organised and uncluttered as well as enriching our mental wellbeing, enabling us to see ourselves more clearly, to discover what we really like and dislike and to capture the best of every little pleasure in life.

It is a practical resource for accessing inner wisdom, enhancing self-esteem, overcoming sorrow and deepening relationships.Each of the 150 meditations in this volume begins with an inspirational quote, followed by a thoughtful meditation, and concluded with an affirmation.

The Book of Hope

Eileen Campbell
Authors:
Eileen Campbell

"We need vision and conviction that the future can be better. With motivation we can act with bravery and daring. Determinations help drive through our vision but is balanced by patience and letting things unfold without trying to force them. Instead of being afraid of the future, we can cultivate the habit of love (the very opposite of fear). . . . With hope the world becomes transformed."We live in chaotic times. Nearly every country in the Western world is confronted with a variety of daunting problems ranging from the rise of neo-Fascist parties, economic stagnation, falling currencies, and a widespread sense of disenfranchisement. There is a sense that we no longer control our lives that circumstances have careened out of control leaving us adrift in a sea of change. Hope seems to be in short supply, and fear at times threatens to overwhelm us as we try to stay afloat in our sea of troubles.This is a book of daily meditations designed to help restore a sense of hopefulness and purpose. It is a book for women who feel overwhelmed and underappreciated. It is the perfect antidote to despair: a book that teaches women to practice hope - to take concrete steps in the face of pain and despair and to make their lives happier.Throughout the book Campbell includes stories of those who have triumphed over adversity and have been sustained by hope, such as Anne Frank, Grace Lee Boggs, Ann Davison, Marie Curie, Artemisia Gentileschi, Hildegard of Bingen, and Xiaolu Guo. She also includes the experiences of those who have been abused or kidnapped--Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey, and Natascha Kampusch, for example--and the stories of refugees who have made new lives for themselves, escaping from Uganda, Iran, and Syria.

365 Days of Self-Care: A Journal

Jayne Hardy
Authors:
Jayne Hardy

It's one thing to understand how important self-care is, but how many of us actually manage to make the time do it? Self-care is a preventative action that focuses on our health and happiness, and yet so often it gets put aside when other things, and people, vie for our time and attention - it's only when life has knocked us to our knees that we realise how vitally important it is. Following on from the hugely popular The Self-Care Project, Jayne Hardy, CEO and founder of The Blurt Foundation, helps us to plan for obstacles, devise contingency plans, be mindful of the way our days play out, and prioritise the things that are truly important to us. With the flexibility of choosing to start the journal anytime; on any day, in any year, this is the essential companion for bringing more self-care into your life.
