Unstuck

Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven-Stage Journey Out of DepressionUnstuck: Your Guide to the Seven-Stage Journey Out of Depression by James S. Gordon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In May I felt emotionally stuck as I coped with my divorce-induced depression. Strategies that had worked even a couple of months before were less effective. It also seemed that some of the deeper hurts were emerging as I worked at healing.

After I wrote a column in the church newsletter about ways I was dealing with my depression, a church member gave me this book and sometime in the summer I began reading it, a few pages every morning, working slowly through it.

There is much that is helpful in it, as the author focuses on non-pharmacological approaches to healing, including good nutrition, exercise, meditation, yoga, etc. I have shifted some of those practices and adopted some of his recommendations.

I think this could be a helpful book for many people dealing with depression.
