A regular reader of Happy Magazine told me about this gem ❤️ If you or someone you know is struggling with coping with Coronavirus and all that it brings, this short book might be just the tool you need. It’s a bargain on Amazon right now too, at only 99c for Kindle users.
Here’s the write up from Amazon:
How worried should I be? What information can I trust? What should I tell the children? Can I survive the panic, let alone the virus?
These are certainly challenging, unprecedented times. Allow pre-eminent psychiatrist Dr Brendan Kelly to help you understand and cope with the unique stresses of today, as we all try to deal with the threat of COVID-19 within our homes, communities and throughout the world.
The anxiety associated with the coronavirus crisis is different to the anxiety seen in traditional disorders, because demonstrably there is something to fear, and that’s what makes this worry so ubiquitous, so persistent and so challenging to manage. The good news is that, just as we are capable of finding sophisticated ways to make ourselves more anxious, we are equally good at finding sophisticated ways to manage our mental health, once we put our minds to it. Anxiety-management techniques help hugely once they are modified to suit the new situation that we face, and in Coronavirus: A Psychological Toolkit, Dr Brendan Kelly will give you all the practical tools you and your family need to navigate these dark, uncertain days.
Royalties from this book will be donated to medical charities assisting with the global response to coronavirus.
