From the Back Cover

Start Feeling Better Today

We all feel stressed, worried, or anxious at one time or another. Sometimes our circumstances, and even things that are out of our control, can wreak havoc on our spirits. Changing how we feel often begins with a small thing. Listening to a beautiful song. Enjoying a sunset. Making a happy memory. This unique book helps you discover how to beat stress, ward off worry, and banish the blues.

50 Ways to Feel Great Today offers medically and scientifically sound advice for giving a blah mood the boot. These time-tested ideas are simple and often low or no cost. While no "happy" pill exists, the activities in this book let you become your own helping hand.

Why not give one a try today? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.


"Clear, concise advice for a healthy mind, body, and spirit."--Curtis E. Harris, MS, MD, JD

"This is an extraordinary book that I will be making available to all my friends, family, and patients. It offers a great balance of self-care and giving to others, which together make life worthwhile and fun."--Jo Marturano, MD, psychiatrist

Format: Paperback
After cracking this book open, I quickly realized that I was not in the appropriate demographic. Many of the chapters mention activities to do with your spouse, children and/or grandchildren. References to the Internet and exercise include basic information for beginners. As I read on, I had the hunch that at least one of the author's was in his 70's. This seemed to be confirmed upon discovering that two of the three authors previously wrote a book titled 70 Ways to Beat 70. Other chapters such as "Pamper Yourself" and "Work On Your Scrapbook" were geared toward women. With this is mind, know that I am not the target consumer of the presented material.

The book's sub-title is "Keys to Beating Stress, Worry, and the Blues". Many of the keys presented are ways to get your mind off of things that may be weighing you down. They are all good activities, but might not be enough for more severe anxiety and depression. Another thing to keep in mind is that many of the suggestions require a substantial amount of free time (e.g. learn an instrument).

This book would make a good fit for an older couple looking to spice life up by introducing different, healthy, memorable and pleasurable activities to established routines.

Format: Paperback
When I was asked to review 50 Ways to Feel Great Today, I jumped at the opportunity. I set my expectations too high, after reading the book I discovered only one new idea that would be helpful for myself or my family. Many of the other methods suggested are excellent, yet very common and simple methods that are repeated over and over by many experts in the field of overcoming depression.

Still, I do think the book can be helpful to some, especially parents and grandparents of young toddlers. While reading the book, I realize that many of the activities mentioned were events that I did when my children were small. Having a copy of this book is a good map for these parents, with suggestions on activities to enrich the lives of the parents and the kids. It would be fun to take each idea, and do one-per-day, then record your results in a blog or journal format. If you have the free time, I recommend it as a good activity. The ideas in the book will help you beat stress, worry and the blues-just like the book says. My favorite new idea is the Love Alphabet, which I am now using with my older children. It's a good book, just not the right book for me. I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher.

Format: Paperback
In my opinion, this book has both pros and cons.

Pros:
*Points the reader to God as the Source of hope.
*Encourages the reader to view him/herself in light of how God views him/her.
*Gives easy tasks to do today to give the reader a new perspective on life.
*Written in five minute chunks - easy to pick up and put down.
*The chapter have catchy titles and are alphabetized in the table of contents.

Cons:
*Often includes too much "research data" in regards to the effectiveness of the tasks.
*Some chapters are "complex" and override the simpleness of the task.
*No real "audience" (or target demographic) can be identified - some chapters seem to target 30yo housewives and others seem to target 70yo senior citizens.

Since the pros list outweighs the cons list, I'll give this book a "3 out of 5" - not a must read, but still a good book to have around.

Format: Paperback
I found the suggestions easy to grasp, and in many cases, easy to implement into your life.

In fact, one idea "kidnap someone you love" seemed quite fun and adventurous. (Basically, you plan either a weekend get-a-way, or an afternoon adventure for someone you love - aka. a spouse, sibling, family member or close friend - and plan all of the details so they don't have to worry about it. Then surprise them with the adventure in an unexpected way.

In all, while many of the suggestions in the book are not unique, the authors have woven together 50 helpful ideas that will remind people, male or female alike, to step back and take care of themselves.

Who knows, you might just find yourself flying a kite, if you take one of their ideas to heart.

Format: Paperback
In the middle of a long Iowa winter, where the winter blues can quickly set in, this book arrived in my mailbox. It is filled with GREAT, fantastic ideas to chase away the blues. At first I thought that this book would be just another Christian "self-help" book. But then as I began to read through it I uncovered many God-given wonderful ideas to increase your happiness level. They take the focus off of the unpleasant circumstances in your life and focus on things you can do to create happiness and a positive living environment for you and your loved ones.

I recommend buying this book to give you hands on information to shake away depression, before it can take root in your life.
