Introduction
Hello there. How are you? Good? Yep, us too. Isn't it wonderful how everyone’s always fine, good or even great? It makes everything seem so nice and normal. Except feeling permanently fine isn't normal. Our ability to experience and process a range of thoughts and emotions is what makes us human, but unfortunately those thoughts and feelings can often be pretty dark. In reality everyone feels rubbish sometimes. Life can trip you up any time it fancies, blind siding you with dramas and dilemmas that can make you feel low, sad and depressed.
But don’t panic, there’s good news too …
Firstly, you can feel happier. There are strategies and tools contained within this book that will help you change negative thoughts, feelings and behaviour. If you’re truly willing to invest a bit of time on yourself then you can completely change your life – and we’re not just saying that. Keep reading – we’re confident we’ll convince you.
Secondly, you’re not alone. Low mood is a common mental health problem and one in four people in the UK will experience some kind of mental health issue in the course of a year. Put another way, 25 per cent of people living in the UK have sought medical advice for concerns about their emotional well-being. While this state won’t prompt anyone to crack open the bubbly, it should be reassuring to know that at least some of the shiny happy people surrounding you might not be quite as shiny and happy as they make out. As far as feeling unhappy is concerned you’re totally and utterly normal.
And thirdly, people generally don’t sprint in the opposite direction when the phrase ‘mental health’ is mentioned any more – the stigma surrounding depression and feeling low is disappearing. Unfortunately, it does still exist in some areas, but in recent years there has been a dramatic increase in people’s awareness of emotional health issues. Celebrity sufferers, such as Stephen Fry and Catherine Zeta Jones, now speak openly about their experiences of depression. There are countless campaigns from mental health charities, television programmes and magazines which all raise awareness. It is becoming as common for someone to want to look after their emotional health as it is for them to resolve any problems with their physical health – which is where this book comes in.
