While we are all quarantined I know a lot of people are taking the time to improve themselves. I was given two self help books to review so I thought now would be a great time to share my thoughts. They might be great Quarantine Reads.
How to Heal: A Practical Guide to Nine Natural Therapies by Jessi Beyer
According to the National Council for Behavioral Health around 7 out of 10 people have experienced trauma. After experiencing a trauma it is not healthy to do nothing, but for some traditional talk therapy is not the best option. This book discusses nine natural healing methods, so hopefully you can find one that is right for you. Also, it is important to note that 50% of the profits from all book sales will be donated to the Pararescue Foundation.
While I have not experienced a trauma in my life, I have several friends who have. Reading this educated me on a variety of different therapy options available. I connected with Eco therapy and Nature based therapies the most. I totally agree with the statistic that said being in nature can help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. The great thing about this book is that even if you don’t feel like this method is right for you there are eight other methods to try. I highly suggest picking this up if you, or a loved one, have experienced trauma and don’t feel like talk therapy is the best option.
