Identifies where you're at and prompts gently with beneficial tips.

This is a big aid for you....well it was for me. I've had the black dog before and still I fell into a worse one. 18 months and we all know the signs in perhaps different intensities. Rumination, isolation, lethargy, n
Hating yourself, seeing no end. None of us want this but that wherewithal seems to have deserted us, doesn't it? We just don't know how to break out. We've no energy. Well that first step at helping yourself is in here. You map your energy level against your well being level on a chart over hours or days. It will help you to notice little changes in yourself especially when you've taken up on one of the tips( even as trivial as moving chairs?). Don't be put off, take those first few steps and you will see and FEEL that change.
I started with small steps and had reverse days I promise but I've turned that corner and I want you to as well.
I'm a 59 year old retired maths teacher so just an ordinary guy who felt lost. To start I'd had the book but not got into it. I got a pad out and just started to write "how do you feel?" On the top of the page. It was hard but in the end some words arrows and balloons followed. The book enabled me to put a framework around me. Help steps if you will. My mood improved and I renewed my golf membership not having played once in a year. I played and was shattered but there was a change in the offing. Just changes of scenery...walk to library, go to cinema, golf restarted...the journey is part of the process. In time I played over 30 times in two months. I've so much energy now. The transformation is enormous. I've booked golf holiday, organised my finances, got my home shipshape and I'm on a healthy eating plan(joe wicks). I've lost over 30 lbs but it all started with a few small steps so talk to yourself and congratulate yourself for reading this. Next step...buy it...and start to use it. You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Good luck.
