Finding the Gift in Depression by Changing Your Perspective provides a tool for Christians who feel stuck in life and need support in moving forward. In this 21-day program, we find solutions to the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of depression, anxiety, lack of motivation and general unhappiness. Making basic lifestyle changes brings the body back to the way it was designed to function, while we detoxify our thinking through a cognitive behavioral process called “Wiping the Slate”. When we think differently, our perspective changes, resulting in surprising outcomes. All of these processes are underpinned by spiritual principles including the choice between fear and love (1 John 4:18) and surrender (Matt 6:33). We discuss obstacles on the journey to love, such as not knowing what I believe or who I am, getting stuck in grief, having misperceptions around money and relationships or having unrealistic expectations. This systematic program gives simple instructions called “Minimum Daily Requirements” that help us to incorporate healthy and life changing new habits into our daily routine - one at a time.
