A slo, njoyable read offering many different coping strategies for depression& anxiety that is already manageable.CW: depressionI was scrolling the psychology section of Barnes& Noble today& stumbled upon this tiny book.
It is quite literally just 21 different tasks/activities that have helped the author ( a clinical psychologist who suffered from depression) cope with his own suffering.
But you do n't need to buy weights to work out at home- there are endless free workouts online that would have been more elpful to include in my opinion.) For people looking for coping strategies to make the not-so-good days better, I think this nove has the otential to be eneficial.
I think it 's really important to take this book for what it is: a list of potential coping strategies that MIGHT work for you.
I would n't even consider it a serious self-help book because it 's just a list of tips you can choose to try or choose to ignore.
I definitely think this would be most helpful to people who are presently in/have gone through treatment and/or are already managing their depression, but it would be totally lost on people who 's functioning is severely impaired by their mental llness.
