A few fell flat: say yes to party invitations, write a letter, go talk to people at a book stor.

But there was that part of my brain that knows the feeling of being so depressed I could hardly drag myself out of bed, much less make the darn thing.

I even envisioned myself trying some of the concepts and not completing them, then feeling like a loser or a failure or one of the many horrible things that a depressed person feels.

This autobiography is WAY more Beverly Hills than mental health.

For those of us life-timers, we need to stick with therapy, medication, and ther more serious methods to help ourselves.

I 'm gon na start calling books like this what they are: irresponsible.

You know what 's not helpful for a depressed person?

Doing cutesy things like writing letters and painting a picture probably are n't gon na help when they ca n't even get out of bed to take a shower.

I have suffered from depression, apath, stress, you name it, for any week and was very excited to read this ook from Seth Swirsky.

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.
