If you've ever struggled with depression, take heart. Mindfulness, a simple yet powerful way of paying attention to your most difficult emotions and life experiences, can help you break the cycle of chronic unhappiness once and for all. In The Mindful Way through Depression, four uniquely qualified experts explain why our usual attempts to "think" our way out of a bad mood or just "snap out of it" lead us deeper into the downward spiral. Through insightful lessons drawn from both Eastern meditative traditions and cognitive therapy, they demonstrate how to sidestep the mental habits that lead to despair, including rumination and self-blame, so you can face life's challenges with greater resilience. Jon Kabat-Zinn gently and encouragingly narrates the accompanying CD of guided meditations, making this a complete package for anyone seeking to regain a sense of hope and well-being. See also the authors' Mindful Way Workbook, which provides step-by-step guidance for building your mindfulness practice in 8 weeks. Plus, mental health professionals, see also the authors' bestselling therapy guide: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, Second Edition.

This has taken a long time for me to read, although I would've finished it earlier if I had realized how close I was finishing (after 83% it's pretty much resources). I started per friend's recommendation when I was suffering from depression. And the book helped. I wasn't very good at doing the exercises, but the book gave me ideas. My problem was that the book was somewhat long winded sometimes... It's good that there are examples, but they went on and on. Also the chapters were super long, which wasn't the easiest thing to deal with while your functionality is low. Of course the book mentions that you should actually follow it when you're feeling better and that while suffering from depression, it might be too much. Also, I don't think I'm chronically unhappy, my depression was directly related to my PhD, so maybe I'm not totally the target group. However, I think the methods described here would work (or are working, I'm just doing it through Headspace) for me as well. Probably would work for most people.

TL;DR: I think the meat of the book was interesting, but the way it was presented was not best suited for me. ( )

Majority of the book was a repeat of what had already been mentioned on the first page. It could be shortened into a very thin book if all the repetition was removed, and this would have made the book less irritating to read. The different exercises feels like they can help though. ( )

My the Mind/Body counselor recommended by my PT recommended this book "Replace the word depression with any other problem" (ie chronic pain). Meditation is more of a prophylactic for depression rather than something that can be used during a depression so the title is a bit misleading. Anyway, it's a bit on the dry side, but a decent gathering of meditation techniques expunged of all Buddhism. I admire the effort to make available this information to those who are scared off by the religion in which meditation is usually embedded. I was familiar with most of the techniques, and I have a hard time listening to CDs of guided meditations, but there were new ideas there for me too. ( )

The Mindful Way through Depression draws on the collective wisdom of four internationally renowned cognitive therapy and mindfulness experts, including bestselling author Jon Kabat-Zinn, to help you break the mental habits that can lead to despair. This authoritative, easy-to-use self-help program is based on methods clinically proven to reduce the recurrence of chronic unhappiness. Informative chapters reveal the hidden psychological mechanisms that cause depression and demonstrate powerful ways to strengthen your resilience in the face of life's misfortunes. Kabat-Zinn lends his calm, familiar voice to the accompanying CD of guided meditations, making this a complete package for anyone looking to regain a sense of balance and contentment.

f you’ve ever struggled with depression, take heart. Mindfulness, a simple yet powerful way of paying attention to your most difficult emotions and life experiences, can help you break the cycle of chronic unhappiness once and for all.

Where do I start with a review like this :

It is our thoughts and how we react to them that takes us down!


Signs and symptoms of depression include:


Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. ...
Loss of interest in daily activities. ...
Appetite or weight changes. ...
Sleep changes. ...
Anger or irritability. ...
Loss of energy. ...
Self-loathing. .
Reckless behavior
Thinking of suicide or self-inflicted pain


There are so little number of people who really understands depression, people often misunderstand such a person, and his or her every-day battle, actually nobody can help such a person except himself!

This video is of a girl suffering from depression – it hit very close to home when I watched it the first time!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHJRBpIZm1o

This review is to explain myself to myself not to my friends, this is me admitting to myself I am not ASHAMED OF ME – I WAS BORN THIS WAY!

SO TODAY I am ADMITTING - I have depression and anxiety disorder SO Another STEP TO MY HEALING, when I read this review again in the future – I am going to try never to hit rock bottom again like this year, I am going to try to smile I am going to try not to hide, but most of all I am not going to RUN!

So I am going to try to explain as best as I can what happens to me and any person with depression and anxiety disorder!

I could never admit it to anyone except very close family members that I have depression, after my doctor said I have nothing to be ashamed of – firstly my doctor made me tell my husband a few years back, then he needed to visit her in private, so afterwards I shared this information with my sister and more family members after that, then I started to share it with friends I trusted BUT STILL SOMETIMES I FELT ASHAMED OF THIS, and then this week I decided WHATEVER – this is me, I am going to just say what I am – a depressed person with anxiety disorder!

I was always ashamed what will happen if I admit it to people, what will people think of me or say to me, will they think I am crazy or say I am crazy if I admit it! BUT IT DOES HURT IF I NEED TO TELL THE TRUTH if I hear people say that persons suffering from depression is crazy!

BUT - Do not fret I am on medication – some people will call it crazy pills (I hate it if people do that – but it is their right to have their own opinions of subjects) – BUT I call it my survival pills – if you do not care!

Then I realized I do not really care what people think of me, or say regarding me or behind my back– the biggest problem with humanity I experienced is the day lost hope in it!

I also realized this year that if I am at my lowest point in my life – I need to say sorry to people, I need to say goodbye to them – l will admit this year I went a bit over the top to say I am sorry or ask for forgiveness, but I will never do it again I learned a valuable lesson this year! →

Always do what you want, and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.

Now let me tell you if you do not understand depression I will admit my husband does not understand it either, even if my doctor explained it to him, it is quite normal for a normal person not to understand this illness!

People who does not know depression it is a missing link in your brain as my doctor once explained it to me, a chemical imbalance, it is an illness like any other illnesses that needs medication, one example diabetics, if you do not take the medication you really get sick and feel much worst, as when you drink the medication

Small effects usually bring on my depression, big events like a person being sick or persons suffering break me!

Well I have to admit if I hit rock bottom the lowest level of my depression it takes me months to recover

I go into a black hole mood as I would like to describe it, I withdraw from my friends and family and the world anything that might make me feel better or happy, I stop reading, I stop about anything that makes me feel like a human, I sleep and sleep some more – they luckily say sleep helps you heal so that is one positive point.

This is the first year since I was grade 12 age 18 that I hit rock bottom, that year I lost my dad, it took me months to stand up after that!

WHEN I LEAVE MY MEDICATION LIKE about two and half years back – I realized I cannot leave my medication

My son got very sick, AND he almost died – he got the staphylococcus virus, and just before his illness I left my medication. So when his illness appeared and I though he will die, that’s when I realized I will NEVER EVER LEAVE MY MEDICATION again – but unfortunately MEDICATION DOES NOT ALWAYS HELP – WE need other help as well!

I usually left my medication just before I hit rock bottom – it is usually the time I feel on top of the world, that is when I stop taking my survival pills BUT THE TELL THE TRUTH THAT IS WHEN my depression hits the lowest level, I feel better when I stop taking it – or so I like to believe – but in actual the time I am not better and everybody sees it except me – AND MY THOUGHTS IS USUALLY - WTF are they actually trying to say to me, are they just perhaps telling me HOW I am supposed to FEEL, OR THAT I AM CRAZY OR SOMETHING! In the end I know they were only trying to help, but straight away NO I DO NOT SEE IT THAT way!

Now I just drink my medication like the pill – like a person who does not want to fall pregnant, I do not think about it anymore I JUST DO IT.

Medications are actually supportive, but by themselves, they can’t keep me on top of the world (or what some people call "normal." Some people will maybe call it “crazy” as they do not understand the illness and has no need to read about it) Once we depressed persons reach rock bottom we need some more help in staying focused so much more than regular persons.

This book done that for me it helped me to stay focus and on top without the world tumbling apart!

BUT I ONLY READ IT IN THE END OF APRIL THIS YEAR!

BUT one thing I need to tell people I never expect anyone to understand me!

I do not need friends providing sympathy, as nobody can heal me when I hit rock bottom except myself!

I do not want people to say after this review how sorry they feel for me, this is not the reason for this review –but I know some people will think otherwise!


BUT SINCE READING THIS BOOK - I DO NOT CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF ME, I ACCEPTED MYSELF YEARS AGO, and I DO NOT NEED ACCEPTANCE FROM NOBODY!

AND LEAST OF ALL I do not need friends accusing me of WHY DID YOU NEVER TOLD ME!

BUT ALAS I do not allow myself ever to have real time out – because I know I will never be able to stand up again if I do it!

BUT IN APRIL THIS YEAR I realized – HEY GIRL PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER?

I started to try to stay focus – I stopped reading romance novels as it just made me more depressed!
I started to read about famous singers – as that is just me, I found 2 that stood out, Michael Jackson and Eminem

I tried things I would never have done like reading ARC’s!

I love music – a friend introduced me to this book – and I never knew before this book that I speak with people through music, or how music forms me as a human - Melophobia by James Morris – And I realized this is me, me and my music, I never played so many songs to people as this year, and do not think it is only on my reviews – but I also use it as my healing method – it helps me survive!

On my reviews music is actually how I feel about the book and how it made me feel so I am not trying to speak to people! I actually speak to the characters of that specific book and how they made me feel while reading that book.

I started to listen to music – music has a way to speak to me! These 7 songs meant so much to me this year!


Miley Cyrus - The Climb
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG2zyeVRcbs

Disturbed - The Sound of Silence
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Dg-g7t2l4

Bon Jovi - Hallelujah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSJbYWPEaxw

Jamie Scott – Unbreakable
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZAs5K7L8KA

Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNDl41HfvxI

Survivor - Burning heart
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kc71KZG87X4

Lastly but not the final one is this specific song – I always give the song away to other people but it is actually mine, (my daughter always laughs at me and say you cannot claim all the songs LOL!) See one day a few years back I was crying about my mom and a huge decision to put her in an old age home – and it just felt if God was trying to say something to me!

So this one became His and my song!

Phil Collins – stop your crying

Information about this book
This is truly an outstanding technique of accepting and overcoming the problems of depression and anxiety.

This is a ground-breaking technique treating depression by combining C.B.T. with Buddhist mindfulness exercises - and I think next year I am going to visit a Buddhist country to learn about their meditation methods!

The metaphors and training methods for meditating have helped me, but I need more training on this subject!

I discovered "moving meditation" with methods walking, swimming, also helps so that was a starting point, not taking the lift but almost running up the stairs at work.

Recommend to the following type of readers: →>
I highly recommend this book to people suffering from depression or who has family members or friends suffering from depression

To the Author
Thank you – for writing a book that actually changed my life!




You written a piece of art! And a standing ovation from me!
