How to Survive, Making Your Life Better - Living on Little, the Forgotten Art


 

This book of help focuses on practical suggestions and strategies that can be used to enable a person to survive well on a small or limited income. The book focuses on the coping process and the reprogramming of one's mind to be able to cope; in escaping from otherwise downward spiral life change. Diet, nutrition, eating (based on the Nathan Pritikin model); shopping; holidaying; being entertained; gaining materialism and looking after oneself are discussed in detail. Situations that land people on low income for example, illness, disability, unemployment, retrenchment; career change; retirement and pension are featured throughout. Basic budgeting and money management techniques are included. Welfare that can have the cumulative effect of depression, prospective suicide, and/or death is discussed. Conditions such as illness; disability; age retirement (pension); work related illness; unemployment and retrenchment are highlighted throughout. The book is illustrated with simple black line cartoon drawings (inspired by Elizabeth's pet cat) that feature a cat, an ant and mice that illustrate the therapeutic value of pets and the comedy in some life situations that can be prevalent during such times of stress and basic survival.
