How to Feel Better: Practical ways to recover well from illness and injury

Paperback | English

By (author): Dr Frances Goodhart Lucy Atkins


In days gone by, people understood that a knock to your health takes its toll on your emotions, your relationships, your morale, your ''spirit''. But these days, we think that if the doctor has waved you off, then you are ''better''. We neglect what scientific studies show is a vital element of recovery: the emotional side of getting better. As a result, many of us struggle with hidden issues such as depression, stress and anxiety long after a health crisis. This new book, from the authors of The Cancer Survivor''s Companion (highly commended by the BMA and winner of the Guild of Health Writers'' Best Health Book 2012) centres on the crucial, research-based (but widely overlooked) truth that ''getting better'' is not just about the body - emotions play a huge part. Often, a person''s emotional state is the one thing stopping them from a full recovery.

Contents include: Why getting better takes time; why relaxation and exercise are both vital; how to build your confidence and tackle low mood and depression; how to eat for recovery; how to deal with medical advice and communicate well with your doctor; how to keep family life and relationships on track and much more. There are also case histories to inspire readers as well as fascinating snippets from times gone by which help to make this an entertaining as well as a highly practical, inspiring read.
