Lifting Your Spirits by Jan Alcoe and Craig Brown
Lifting Your Spirits is a unique practical guide designed to help people coping with illness or disability. Drawing on the insights of those who have experienced the challenges of serious illness, it introduces seven simple tools to develop inner strength and enhance well-being on all levels. Each tool offers practical and inspiring ways of dealing with the physical and emotional upheaval and uncertainty which illness presents. Some focus on preparing for surgery and treatment, others on coping with pain, anxiety or depression.
The guide can be used by individuals for their own sustenance, or introduced into patient support groups, treatment and therapy centres, hospices, day centres and other healthcare services.
The beautifully illustrated book and two audio CDs provide guided relaxation and meditation, short daily practices and positive thoughts which will literally ‘lift your spirits’.
