Singing in the Rain 52 practical steps to happiness
It's so gracefully accomplished and full of hope and practicality. Stretches out a hand to the lonely, the lost and the exhausted. It's a great gift of hard-won wisdom. I took my blood pressure before and after. It dropped. She began her career as a journalist in London at The Times. Rachel lives in West London.
My new book — Singing in the Rain: 52 Practical Steps to Happiness — was prompted by my own experience of being seriously unwell with depression. In my thirties, I suffered two major depressive episodes, an experience I wrote about in my first book Black Rainbow: How words healed me — my journey through depression , published in My descent into depressive illness is a cautionary tale for all of us trying to juggle the multiple demands of work, family and our need for status and approval above our own emotional wellbeing and health. We need to tread warily amid the demands of modern life and the pressures we put on ourselves. So I began to collect a toolkit of ideas for good mental health to make a third depressive episode less likely.

Share on:. How would you like 52 tips on how to be happier? No this isn't an offer to sign up to a dodgy website - it's a small book which you could pop into a bag and which will give you tips, tools and positive idea about how you can make your life happier, less complicated and more fulfilling. Open it at random, if that's what you feel like doing, or work your way through it reading one tip per week - they're helpfully divided into the four seasons - and savour just a couple of pages of elegant writing which will give you something to think about or something positive to do or not do - if you see what I mean. I empathised with Rachel Kelly immediately: she's overcome depression and like anyone who has been in that pit she knows that the road out is steep and it's all too easy to slither back down again. She knows that she needs strategies to help her through what Freud calls ordinary human unhappiness - the ups and downs of everyday life.
