Book

The Official Depression Relief Playbook: Real-Life Strategies From a Guy Who Has Lived It

by Zack S. Rutledge

Topics

Our conversation ranges from daily routines, gut health and probiotics, taking supplements, being in therapy, meditation practice, physical fitness as part of a daily routine that produces chemicals to help our mind-body balance, and setting up structures that don’t rely on willpower. Oh, and naturally, we talk about reducing our media intake, or at least not watching the news. The topics are a bit personal stories, a bit self-help, some wellness, and a lot of taking action, or “doing the work.”

Zack has asked a chapter in the book on mindset. He has graciously offered to send the chapter to anyone who request it. zacksrutledge@gmail.com
