Clinical psychologist Julie Smith, who lives in England, has been giving advice for dealing with mentally challenging situations in short videos on social media channels such as Instagram and TikTok for many years. With “Get Up or Stay?” Offer a kind of gist of her work.
In the book, she combines the results of current research with practical instruction that works to maintain mental health. According to Smith, the book does not have to be read cover-to-cover, but can also be used as a reference work if needed. In individual chapters, the author addresses the wide range of emotional states a person can go through, such as sadness, fear, and stress. At the end of each chapter, Smith summarizes the most important content in a practical way and without redundant information, which can serve as a guide for the reader.
Rise or Stay is not a book that promises to improve after reading it. The author cares about imparting useful tools – without claiming to be universally valid. Overall, this is an informative book that provides many motivations for independent work.
