Having overcome life-threatening hopelessness, Lauralee is well qualified to share insights into healing from depression. In Beautiful, Courageous You, Lauralee’s words will concur with many sufferers of depression. As she describes, ‘depression is more than just a low mood, from time to time we all feel sad, moody or just flat. In depression these feelings are experienced more intensely, more frequently and most often without reason.’
Here’s what the experts are saying:
You will go on an amazing journey with Lauralee as she shares her testimony. You will cry and rejoice with her and you will find ‘golden keys’ to help you in your own journey. The book outline in easy simple truths on ways to live a life of freedom encompassing all aspects of our body, spirit and soul. – Lyn Baird (Master in Counseling & Clinical Director of Life Bridge Counseling & Psychology)
Beautiful, Courageous YOU is a true account of one woman’s experience of heartbreaking despair, grief and deep depression. This beautiful book will appeal to women who are suffering from depression or anxiety, and would like practical strategies to overcome adversity. Lauralee shares her knowledge and personal experience on nutrition, exercise, natural remedies, medicine, self-care, support, and the Word of God. The content is gentle, non-judgmental and written with love. – Lisa Lindley, Psychologist
Through a personal journey of depression comes Lauralee’s own courageous story of healing for the spirit, soul and body. Straight from the heart of the Father, Beautiful, Courageous You has a mandate to tell every woman who they are, that God is captivated by their beauty and through Him they have courage to face whatever crosses their life’s journey. – Janelle Knox, Mici Magazine
While exercise has the potential to transform your body, increase feel good chemicals and keep you feeling confident and healthy, it also does wonders for your mind to be distracted from your worries and negative ruminating. In the very depths of depression I would spend most of my waking hours trying to reason with my unreasonable thinking. Much like a dog chasing his tail, I never caught up with reason. My real turning point was when I put on my running shoes and ran out along an old dirt road to visit some brown cows.
Exercise is much more than getting fit; rather, it’s meditation in motion.
I love to run with the sun on my skin, birds chirping, smells of the countryside, focused breathing and on the lookout for the odd brown snake on my path. With all my senses being stimulated it is hard to think about anything else. Often on days when I am feeling flat or just unbearably grumpy with my loved ones, my husband will point to my shoes and “suggest,” “You need to go for a run!” From experience, he knows all too well that I am a better wife and mother when I have been out for a run, having left my worries behind and fully engaged in the moment, distracted from whatever had been weighing me down. This works for me, and it will work for you also. After a 30 minute jog, a brisk walk, several laps in the pool or whatever exercise you choose, you’ll often find by the end of a session that you’ve forgotten the negative ponderings whilst being focused only on your body’s movements and the surrounding environment! Now go ahead and leave the screen time, get out and move that amazing body 🙂
