Mental illness is greatly misunderstood. It is distorted, feared, and hidden – often leading to shame, guilt, and exacerbated mental health symptoms. Whole Happy and Healthy: A Revolutionary Approach to Understanding and Thriving with Mental Illness challenges this stigma and opens up new possibilities by exploring how people who experience mental illness can create a full, purposeful, and vibrant life by connecting with and continually expanding their perceptions – the intersection and interaction of emotions, intellect, intuition, and the senses – in twelve areas. Author Jessica R. Dreistadt reframes mental illness as a gift, rather than a deficit, to help readers discover and develop a holistic, integrative process that leads to more inner peace, emotional freedom, and joy. Whole Happy and Healthy changes the conversation about mental illness and emotional well-being, resulting in increased empathy, compassion, and resilience.

In reading Speed Reading I struggled with this topic because I love to read and don’t want to rush. But I found that there were some amazing tips to help you get through manuals and other books where time may not be on your side. #speed
Raking Light from Ashes (Kindle Edition)
Another amazing book on the Holocaust. You would expect the experiences and views to be different author to author but they are not. They are painstakingly sad stories that make you question the world we came from.
At first I was thinking there was no way this book would be good. But I was surprised by the great ideas and methods for rethinking what you do in life. It’s not a magic wand but a thought provoking book that guides you down a path to rethinking life, money and the pursuit of happiness.
What a great read!!
