Stowe, VT (PressExposure) September 09, 2009 -- We seem to be affected by a depression epidemic. This silent killer will be the second most common health problem by 2020! What is worse is that more than eighty percent of people suffering from depression keep it in. They undergo no treatment, they talk to no one and they do not enjoy life. It affects people regardless of age, gender, culture, race, lifestyle, country, and socioeconomic conditions. Without a commonly accepted cause for depression, the solution tends to consider therapy and medication.
After experiencing the impact depression had on her family, Alicia Castillo Holley, embarked on a journey to help others regain their inner joy, creating a program and a site. âDepression almost killed one of my children âsays the author- we no longer take happiness for granted. In the process, we learned to reconsider what success was. I did not expect it to become a book, but family and friends started requesting it and after several thousands of emails I decided to write it. The main problem is that we donât even think about our happiness, we donât work at it, we expect it as a gift from life, and we just sit and wait for it. We expect others to be perfect and to love us for who we are, but we donât do enough to love our lives, and in the process, we create lives we donât love.â
The book âFalling in love with your lifeâ has received rave reviews from international experts such as Dr. Robert Epstein, Founder and Director Emeritus, Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies. Former editor in chief, Psychology Today magazine; Noel Posus, Australian and New Zealand coach of the year 2009; Farideh, the head of a girl school in Iran and many others.
Can we do something to prevent the feelings of helplessness? Can we learn to unlock our happiness and experience the inner joy of being alive? Why do we live happy childhoods and unhappy adulthoods? The answers are closer than we think: Happiness is inside of us and if we set it free, our whole world and those around us change.
Falling in love with your life will help those seeking to have more joy in their lives as well as helping others in the pursuit of happiness.
