All of us go through emotional upheaval at some point in our lives. Therapists, friends, or books might help us calm down and be happier. We might need these things to help us get into a better mood. In the last few months, people around the world have been feeling a lot of stress. A lot of people were hurt emotionally in 2020.
Isolation from loved ones, friends, colleagues, teachers, and students made it hard for us to figure out how to keep COVID-19 from making us sick and killing us. Anyone who had already been having emotional problems before COVID-19 or because of COVID-19 found it more difficult to deal with their problems if they couldn’t get help from mental health professionals.
A lot of mental health, medical, and social distancing confusion has been going on at the same time. It doesn’t matter what caused the person to be angry or sad. The world is now reading more books because we have more time. Many of those books can help people who are feeling down. They do it by raising your soul and mind to powerful places.
Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life’s Greatest Lesson by Mitch Albom
Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie often makes people cry because it helps them feel better. In this book, a young man talks about what he learned from his lively, then dying, sociology teacher.
Those lessons were about setting psyche-saving priorities and how to live life to the fullest even when things go wrong. The best way to learn about life is from death itself. With each new reading, you can learn important lessons about life over and over again. Tuesday’s with Morrie is a great book to talk about or think about alone.
The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom
To read The Timekeeper, people who are strong enough to think about what happens if they stay in a situation until they learn its spiritual lessons should read this book, not people who are weak. Is this how it ends? These excerpts from the book show how it can help people who are hurting inside to get better. It wasn’t the same thing to know something and understand it. Try to imagine a life without clocks. You most likely can’t. You know what month, year, and day of the week it is. There is a clock on your wall or in your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie, and you follow them. Yet, timekeeping isn’t given much attention around you. The birds aren’t late. A dog doesn’t look at its clock. Deer don’t worry about birthdays that have passed. Man is the only one who can tell time. He chimes the hour on his own. Because of this, man is the only animal that has a paralyzing fear that no other animal has. A fear of not having enough time.
Not everyone gives back their time. The answer to your prayer could come right away. If you don’t believe that, then you don’t believe in the most important part of the future.
“What is this?”

Me Before You (Me Before You Trilogy) by JoJo Moyes

An empath is someone who knows how someone else feels, even if he or she doesn’t know what they are thinking at all. The results can be confusing for empaths. They don’t know if the thoughts and feelings came from them or someone else.
Thriving as an Empath: 365 Days of Self-Care for Sensitive People by Judith Orloff
There is a lot of confusion, even without the insights, that can make empathic people angry. They don’t know how to use their insightful gifts in a healthy way. There are many books by Dr. Judith Orloff that can be very helpful to empaths, like hers. If you want to know more about her, she’s a psychiatrist on the UCLA Psychiatric Clinical Faculty. Her career began when she had to figure out how to use her empathic abilities as a teenager. Another great book for empaths will probably be out in 2021. When Rabbi Doniel Katz, a member of the Shift Network, talks about things in this coffee table book, you can look at them all at one time.
Rabbi Doniel Katz says this interesting thing: “What so many people don’t realize is that when you’re dealing with some people’s healing, it’s not just their own. It’s also the healing of other people.” The same goes for their soul family. Because many of our problems are based on problems from the past, we may not even know it. They are things that previous generations did not have the time or resources to deal with, so we have to deal with them now. A person may have anxiety and questions that aren’t just their own, but that have been built up over time.
