Description
A Do-It-Yourself Prescription for Happiness
In their insightful book, wife-and-husband physicians Carrie and Alton Barron present an innovative, highly achievable five-part plan to unleash happiness and alleviate depression and anxiety by tapping into creative potential.
A gifted psychiatrist and a premier hand surgeon, Carrie and Alton Barron draw upon the latest psychological research, a combined forty years of medical practice, and personal experience to demonstrate how creative action is integral to long-term happiness and well-being. The Five-Part Prescription for the Creativity Cure--Insight, Movement, Mind Rest, Your Own Two Hands, and Mind Shift--leads the way to a more meaningful, fulfilling life by simultaneously developing self-understanding and self-expression. With the Barrons' detailed tools and strategies for cultivating creative outlets, overcoming unconscious fears and barriers to happiness, and linking internal thought to external action, readers will build the mind-set and habits necessary for happiness and positive change. They will experience--and learn how to sustain--the deep satisfaction that accompanies creating something by hand.
The perfect self-help book for our handmade, homemade, crafting culture, The Creativity Cure has a simple yet profoundly inspirational message: that you can find the authentic, contented life you crave by taking happiness into your own two hands.
