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.
