Across the world, thousands of people are diagnosed with the bombshell news of cancer every day. Initial thoughts of ‘Why’ quickly move on to ‘How can I deal with this?’ and ‘What should I do next?’ Sadly, there is often little or no help on how to move forward psychologically.
Steer Into The Skid is based on the cancer journey of author and business coach Ted Garratt, who experienced a two-and-a-half-year fight against melanoma. Following his professional experiences, Ted wanted to face his health challenges head-on, and knew that certain techniques would give him the best means – through a strong and effective mindset – to do so. He knew that retreating into his shell was not the most effective way forward.
Steer Into The Skid provides a practical approach to dealing with the mental side of having cancer. It offers a tried-and-tested 8-stage approach, based on Ted’s journey, and is built around mindfulness, meditation, tools from psychology, coaching, counselling, and more. In this book, you will discover a menu of options that you can use – depending on personal needs and preferences – designed to help you respond purposefully to the health journey you find yourself on.
Importantly, the book also includes interviews with people who have gone through cancer and other health issues, and shares their approaches to dealing with these momentous periods in life.
When fate throws your life into a skid, becoming a hands-off passenger will do you no favours. Take action, steer into it, and continue your journey!
