Your Pocket Coach – 25 powerful Reminders

Your Pocket Coach
Written by Karen Gibbs

Did you know that when experiencing problems, writing out your thoughts helps to retrain your brain? For example, intentionally writing positive ideas instead of negatives goes a long way to avoid a depressive episode or feeling the onset of anxiety. Your Pocket Coach has the answers you need.

Many therapists encourage clients to keep a gratitude journal. Thinking about what we are thankful for changes our mindset and leads to better mental and physical health.
Writing from the heart gives us clarity of mind. It’s incredible how much we grow and learn about ourselves while journalling.

I go into this and many other helpful ideas in my book Stop the Downward Spiral – Everything the person in your life who struggles with depression wishes you knew.

The best-added resource is my tiny book, Your Pocket Coach – 25 Powerful Reminders. Just as it says, it’s a coach in your pocket for those moments when you need someone to talk to. The eBook version is excellent if you want some quick support with your thought process, but have a notepad handy if you’re going to write out your thoughts.

Those who wish to carry the book with them easily fit it into your pocket or tote bag. It’s 4 x 6 inches and packed full of motivation and inspiration. If you’re looking for a thoughtful gift idea, this little book is the answer. We all need to take good care of our mental health because how we think affects every aspect of our life.

Especially during the holiday season, many of us feel alone and in need of support at times. It’s so handy to have a little companion book to remind us of what’s important in life. I’m pleased to have completed this life-changing resource, especially given the current state of life for all of us. Remember, nothing lasts forever – better days are coming.
