New research shows that mindfulness reduces the risk of relapse in people who have experienced depression and can be a significant alternative or supplement to medication. Goldstein explores our natural antidepressants - along with mindfulness and self-compassion, also purpose, play, and confidence - and offers specific techniques for putting them into action. Together these elements can transform something that typically forces us to spiral downward and turn it into an upward spiral of self-worth and resiliency.

Clear & Concise - Forward Moving
What did you love best about Uncovering Happiness?
The author's earnestness was what I appreciated most. He shares just enough of his own experience as well as his expertise without overdoing it (like some!). He goes on to share some very practical and simple steps to work toward a more centered existence as well as providing a lot of (presumably) free resources.

Great book, but focused on depression.
Would you listen to Uncovering Happiness again? Why?
Yes. If I found myself significantly depressed for an extended time, I think this would be very helpful. And perhaps again. There are many tools in this book that can be used by all.
Any additional comments?
This book is very good, but I was looking for something a little more mainstream, meaning something for people not constantly in the throes of depression. This book leaned too heavily on being depressed for what I was looking for. However, it's still a fantastic book and would highly recommend it.
