Boston, Massachusetts (PressExposure) November 14, 2011 -- Author of eight previous publications centering on the practice of personal journaling, Mari L. McCarthy now introduces her most recent ebook, entitled Help for the Holidays: 7 Days of Journaling to Ho! Ho! Ho!
In a season that's supposed to be all about peace, joy, and love, many people find it challenging, exhausting, and sometimes even depressing. McCarthy's new workbook provides step-by-step journaling techniques aimed at working through such difficulties. The series of writing practices promises to help you get back your enjoyment of the holidays, by following faithfully the book's seven-day process.
Included in the book are ways to deal with the pressure to create fabulous memories, to buy the best gifts, to cook the best meals while retaining your slim figure, to contend with difficult family members or the sadness of missing loved ones, among other barriers to holiday enjoyment.
The ebook includes a link to an online private forum where they can share their holiday challenges, and get ideas and inspiration from Mari and other journalers.
McCarthy, who is a Journaling Therapy Specialist, publishes a website devoted to journaling, as well as a series of ebooks - or e-workbooks, as she calls them - showing how to apply journal writing to a large variety of life's challenges. Topics have included ways in which journaling can be used in self-discovery, job searches, losing weight, overcoming writer's block, and a host of health and wellness issues.
Journaling tips or prompts are McCarthy's special favorite offering. She has a few hundred available through her website and other publications, and she regularly encourages her online journaling community to share any new prompts they come across. The result is a growing compendium, a rich internet resource for all journalers.
