How Your Body Can Help You Find Peace
Published by Keith R Wilson
I'm a licensed mental health counselor and certified alcohol and substance abuse counselor in private practice with more than 30 years experience. My newest book is The Road to Reconciliation: A Comprehensive Guide to Peace When Relationships Go Bad. I recently published a workbook connected to it titled, How to Make an Apology You’ll Never Have to Make Again. I also have another self help book, Constructive Conflict: Building Something Good Out of All Those Arguments. I’ve also published two novels, a satire of the mental health field: Fate’s Janitors: Mopping Up Madness at a Mental Health Clinic, and Intersections , which takes readers on a road trip with a suicidal therapist. If you prefer your reading in easily digestible bits, with or without with pictures, I have created a Twitter account @theshrinkslinks. MyFacebook page is called Keith R Wilson – Author.

What perfect timing this article was. Haven’t been myself lately sliding down into the depression hole, dealing with the after effects of Covid; having a stress fracture; confusion over my job and my dog dying. Been dwelling on the past too much as well. I love the exercise for the past and future that you outlined, that will be a tremendous help.Thank you for this and everything you write.Sent via the Samsung Galaxy S10e, an AT&T 5G Evolution capable smartphone
My sympathies about your dog, and everything else. You’ve had more than your share of misfortune. I hope the exercise helps you get your mind and body aligned so you can embrace whatever you’ve got now.
