A good companion to the book

Some helpful tips and advice but everything is covered in the book really. None the less, something here could help you with your depression, it's about finding your own combination of what works for you.

The book- if your in deep depression the book itself is a an awful lot to take in, not even a quarter the way through it I ended up with notes everywhere and stressing myself out even more. That's not to say it's bad, it's got all the right ideas but was overwhelming.
