Best Spirituality Book for Depression: How To Stay Married: The Adventures of a Woman Who Learnt to Travel Light in Life, Love and Relationships by Mary-Lou Stephens
I read How To Stay Married as a follow-up to Stephens’ other fun memoir, Sex, Drugs and Meditation. And I liked it almost as much.
Can this book help me overcome depression?
Probably not, though there are some practical tips on enjoying your marriage more. So I suppose it depends what you’re looking for.
Does it address depression specifically? What does it say that can help?
No. The book doesn’t deal with the subject of depression, but I’m including it on my Best Books list for those of you that want to discover a spirituality book you may not have otherwise found.
Here’s the book description from Amazon:
Do you dream of finding the right person to spend your life with? Are you in a strong relationship already and want to keep it that way? Or perhaps your marriage is a little tarnished and you hope to make it shine again?
You’ve come to the right place. While How to Stay Married isn’t your regular ‘how-to’ book, it is about creating the kind of relationship you want.
This is the story of a marriage; a journey from fear, resentment and financial devastation, to a place of love, joy and trust.
Mary-Lou Stephens’ first book Sex, Drugs and Meditation told the story of how meditation changed her life, saved her job and helped her find a husband. How To Stay Married, is the truth behind the happy ending.
How to Stay Married takes us around the world; from the glitter and glare of Las Vegas to the sub-zero temperatures of the French Alps and the tropical heat of Thailand, all with cabin luggage only.
The discoveries Mary-Lou makes regarding herself and her marriage are a modern day parable about learning to travel light in life, love and relationships.
To what degree do you think it can help me overcome depression?
Depression effectiveness rating: 2 on a scale of 1-10
Where can I find it?
You’re not an overeater. You mostly keep it healthy. Maybe it’s time to give dieting a chance.
