Book Recommendation: The Mindful Way Through Depression

I’ve been respond­ing to writ­ing prompts instead of writ­ing per­son­al posts because I haven’t had a lot to say pub­licly. I feel a need to stop now, though, and strong­ly rec­om­mend a book that I’ve been read­ing. The Mind­ful Way through Depres­sion: Free­ing Your­self from Chron­ic Unhap­pi­ness takes a very dif­fer­ent approach to recov­ery from depres­sion and anx­i­ety, issues I’ve dealt with for more than 20 years. The book includes record­ed Guid­ed Med­i­ta­tion Prac­tices nar­rat­ed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, which are high­ly effective.

I’m find­ing the book’s approach­es very use­ful. I have hope of pos­si­bly recov­er­ing beyond just tak­ing med­ica­tion for­ev­er for the first time I can remem­ber. I’d be inter­est­ed in hear­ing feed­back from oth­ers who are using the same approach.
