Pensacola, FL (PRWEB) January 20, 2013
Canadian psychotherapist and author Nicole McCance, along with her publisher, Indigo River Publishing, have chosen an appropriate date—Monday, January 21st or “Blue Monday”--for the release of her new book, 52 WAYS TO BEAT DEPRESSION NATURALLY. Coined by British psychologist Cliff Arnall, “Blue Monday”—the third Monday of each January--is thought to be the most depressing day of the year. Here’s why: Holiday credit card bills are starting to roll in, some of us are still traumatized from holiday family gatherings, most have already dropped their New Year’s resolutions, and it’s dark, cold and it’s Monday. Clever release date aside, the methods for beating depression that McCance provides in her book are meant to help readers not just on Blue Monday but throughout the year.
McCance’s 52 tips draw on Eastern and Western philosophies, relaxation techniques, nutritional and exercise strategies, sleep therapy, and other means of combating depression – all without a pill in sight. The book seeks to provide time-tested techniques for healing one’s psyche naturally in a world overrun with pharmaceutical solutions.
“This is a deeply personal project that extends far beyond my professional ambition,” McCance says. “My father committed suicide when I was a teenager and his funeral was on my 18th birthday. I made a decision that day that if I could make it through that terrible time that I would devote my life to helping others.”
Not only does McCance have empathy for those who are suffering, she has tremendous confidence that they’ll benefit from the easy-to-implement tips provided in her book. “Just try one, and you will feel the difference,” she says.
McCance is a fully licensed psychotherapist and author who has spent more than a decade specializing in the treatment of depression. She has been a frequent contributor to media outlets such as CP24, CTV News, CTV National, Global TV, CBC News, Rogers, CBC Radio, the Toronto Star, and Canadian Living. She is also the relationship expert on Season 2 of the Cosmo television show Love Trap.
