Book Reviews - Take care of your mind
by Life Positive
Here is a book that helps the reader discover the level of his psychological health, or the lack of it. Depression is considered to be one of the third most prevalent disorders in the world today. Our rapid industrialisation, globalisation and the resultant rise in competitiveness and alienation have all generated so much stress and unhappiness that they often spill over into psychological distress. Although it is admittedly daunting to try and discover one’s psychological foibles, there are any number of therapies and treatments that can bring us back to good health, if only we take steps. The actress, Catherine Zeta Jones, was recently hospitalised for bipolar depression and courageously came out and admitted it, in the hope that others suffering from the same ailment would seek help. It is time we recognised that just as we do not hesitate to go to a doctor when our bodies fall ill, we must not hesitate to seek help when our minds do likewise. Dr. Amit Abraham explains by way of a live case how even a mentally healthy individual can invite, create and aggravate conditions that adversely affect his psychological well-being. Even life-threatening conditions can develop gradually over a period of time unless we seek timely psychological counselling or psychiatric treatment. Abnormal behavior includes anxiety, depression, phobias, and moods, sleep disturbances, obsessive or compulsive behavior and many others. The author inquires into the origins of psychological malaises, and their causes – stress, mental fatigue, panic, anxiety, depression, phobias, sleep disorder, suspiciousness, irritability, forgetfulness, fearful dreams, mania, obsession, imaginary ailments, personality disorder and how to become/remain mentally healthy. The author gives one final strong suggestion to the reader. Do not be reluctant to get professional help at the earliest. Your positive acceptance of problems will enable you to seek timely professional counselling so as to recover while the disorder is in the early stages. This action will prevent the progression of difficulties. Your treatment is for the betterment for your own well-being and that of your family.
