In seven easy 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.
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 without judgment. Together, mindfulness and self-compassion can transform something that typically forces us to spiral downward and turn it into an upward spiral of self-worth and resiliency.
The book teaches mindfulness techniques based on new psychological research that demonstrates how we can produce natural antidepressants. Along with a toolkit full of essential ideas and practices to support you along your journey, the techniques offered here will not only prevent future episodes of depression, but can potentially cure it. Dr. Goldstein gives the reassurance that having had depression in the past doesn’t mean you must also suffer from it in the future.
