DESCRIPTION: In seven simple steps, Uncovering Happiness uses
cutting-edge mindfulness and self-compassion techniques along with
innovations in neuroscience to release natural antidepressants in
the brain. Dr. Goldstein shows you how to take back control of your
mind, your mood, and your life. Most of us believe when we’re
depressed that our situation is hopeless. That’s a mistake, Dr.
Elisha Goldstein reassures us in Uncovering Happiness. The secret to
overcoming depression and uncovering happiness is in harnessing our
brain’s own natural antidepressant power and ultimately creating a
more resilient antidepressant brain.Uncovering Happiness is
grounded in two key foundations: mindfulness and self-compassion,
and backed by recent scientific discoveries. New research shows
that mindfulness reduces the risk of relapse in people who have
experienced depression and can be a significant alternative, or
supplement, to medication. The second foundation is
self-compassion—a state of mind in which you understand your own
suffering with an inclination to support yourself. Goldstein
explores our natural antidepressants—along with mindfulness and
self-compassion, also purpose, play, and confidence—and offers
specific techniques for putting them into action. Together, these
elements can transform something that typically forces us to spiral
downward and turn it into an upward spiral of self-worth and
its core, Uncovering
Happiness contains a persuasive argument for hope: Having
had depression in the past doesn’t mean you must also suffer from
it in the future. You can build up the sections of the brain that
protect you from depression, and slow down the sections that foster
it. Doing this allows the brain’s own natural antidepressants to
emerge, grow stronger, and contribute powerfully to the resiliency
that we need to enjoy the good times, survive difficult times, and
open ourselves up to lives that truly feel worth living.
