A Workbook for Daily Growth
by Jaime Zuckerman
Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions. I still find myself thinking about ways I might want to change when each September rolls around. It is ingrained in me to think of the start of a new school year as a time for new (and better?) beginnings. Whether or not that is true for you, this book by a psychologist is a helpful one for anytime that a person wants to consider how they do things and when they decide to make a change.
This title is divided into four big sections. These include Identifying Your Patterns and Habits; Healthy or Hurtful?; Changing Unhealthy Habits and Patters; and Maintenance Stage. The sections follow the progression of work that readers will be invited to complete. In addition the book included references and resources.
This book is attractive in appearance and full of things to think about and exercises and prompts that invite thoughtful investigation. It comes from the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) perspective. Both of these are evidence based systems of treatment. Lessons from mindfulness are also here.
The book’s format is that of a workbook. There is space to record responses to the prompts. This also offers the reader a resource upon which they can look back.
Those looking for some guided self-help may well want to take a look at this resource. It looks full of ways to reflect and live life in a way that one wishes.
Many thanks to Quarto Publishing Group-Wellfleet Press and NetGalley for this title. All opinions are my own.
