The Emotional Calendar: Understanding Seasonal Influences and Milestones to Become Happier, More Fulfilled, and in Control of Your Life : In two decades of psychiatry practice, Dr. John R. Sharp has worked with many people who experienced the same emotional distresses at specific times of the year - a young woman who became depressed before Thanksgiving, a middle-aged man who felt anxious about making his summer travel plans, people who made uncharacteristically extreme decisions as spring approached. In The Emotional Calendar, Sharp reveals how environmental, psychological, and cultural forces profoundly affect the way we feel and how the enduring effects of personal anniversaries can influence our moods and behavior year after year - in ways that are both fascinating and surprisingly counterintuitive. He shows us how to recognize the milestones on our own emotional calendars, providing guidance for how to break stifling patterns and remedy destructive moods. This empathetic and deeply resonant book will help readers reach an emotional balance for the years ahead.
