New Australian Book Fights Teenage Anxiety and Depression Showing How to Improve Teenager’s Low Self Esteem


QUEENSLAND, Australia December, 2012 – According to a study conducted by PMC of the United States National Institute of Health, there is a link between self esteem and body image. The study focused on adolescents aged 11-18 years and found  “a strong and significant association” between teenagers with low self esteem and body dissatisfaction, and suggests the “importance of addressing body image concerns”.  A scary thought, when young people are consistently subjected to images in all forms of media of actors and models who have been photoshopped or are dieting and exercising to an unhealthy level. The reality is, teenage body dissatisfaction is out there – and more effective ways to improve teenager’s self esteem need to be considered to prevent a generation of adolescents from low self esteem and depression.

Happy Mind Formula is a book written by Australian author and NLP and Time Line Therapy Practitioner to help Aussies of all ages understand anxiety and depression. It’s a book that educates and inspires people to beat their anxiety and depression through personal development and managing their health throughfood and movement. The book states that by managing their health, self esteem and confidence improves, relieving the symptoms of anxiety and depression, which makes this book an ideal resource to help combat the body issue pressures adolescents face today.

The Happy Mind Formula book focusses on non-prescription treatments for anxiety and depression, and this focus is what drew Bridget T. to grab a copy of the insightful book. Bridget is a nutritionist and a Food Body Lifestyle Guru. Bridget knows first hand the pain of being overweight and bullied as a child, but she says low self esteem, excess weight, anxiety and depression are problems with solutions. Early on, she decided she didn’t want to be classified as an overweight teenager and adult and she “set about finding a sensible way to enjoy food, never be hungry and lose weight”.

Bridget labels Happy Mind Formula a “God send”. “Depression and anxiety are incredibly debilitating conditions and when you are in them you just ‘don’t know what is wrong with you’,” Bridget says. “It can keep you stuck and trapped and spiralling down. Books like yours [Happy Mind Formula] give insight into the WHYs and HOWs and in doing so empower people to find their way out of the darkness. Thank you for such holistically brilliant work.”

Author Tracey Carmichael describes the Happy Mind Formula book as jam packed with sensible, practical strategies making it easy for the reader to implement changes into their lives. It is no wonder, then, that despite her being an accredited dietician and a professional nutritionist, Bridget still found Happy Mind Formula extremely valuable as an alternative solution to anxiety, depression and low self-esteem that began in her childhood due to body dissatisfaction.
