Practical guide for a freer life

How do you break away from oppressive thoughts? How do you grow the balls to do what you really want? And how do you find freedom from physical limitations, such as chronic gut problems?

In this book, I speak openly about the death of my father from depression; how that loss led to my own depressions (plus anxiety and gut problems); and how I learned to manage.

I wrote it to share my story and hopefully help you. To free you from whatever shit is holding you down. Because I know what it’s like to live in a mental prison. How the sharp claws of fear, anger, loneliness, and shame can hold you in their grip.

Especially in these f*cked up times, in which our freedom of movement is literally limited and fear is on the rise, this book offers you a way out. The Joy of Good Shit is a practical guide for both adults and teenagers looking for a freer life. 

The secret of breaking free lies in the smallest of things, that you already unconsciously carry with you. I help you discover where they’re hidden. 

The hottest book on mindfulness. If a writer dares to write: ‘I’m a bitch’, you’ll want to read more. No idea if she is, but Jessica Scheper is definitely funny and original.
