"Drs. Dezelic and Ghanoum's 5 MINUTE PRESCRIPTION - For Health, Happiness & Meaning in Life is the perfect prescription today to help each individual improve the quality of his or her life. These extremely thoughtful and highly trained professionals outline the “Personal Wellness Plan Prescription” for each of us to, in their words, “find more health, vitality, and resilience,” and “ultimately discover and re-discover Meaning in Life.” The authors outline how devoting five minutes three times a day can lead to “healing the psychological and physical domains, and reignite hope and meaning.” The use of quiet reflection, mindfulness and the expression of gratitude (“gratitude moments”) daily helps each of us to “replenish and recharge” and lead a meaningful life. This expertly written book and superb graphics make this an invaluable resource for all."

“'To prescribe' is literally 'to write before' or 'in advance of.' A self-help prescription, then, is a message from your here-and-now self to your future self - a memo of awakening and wellness. Written by two diplomates in Logotherapy, a form of Meaning-Centered therapy, this highly accessible and practical volume goes beyond the synthesis of meaning and mindfulness. The book - to my knowledge - is one of the very first psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) self-help resources, an invaluable wellness asset in these challenging pandemic times. 5 Minute Prescription by Drs. Dezelic and Ghanoum is a kind of PDR (Physicians' Desk Reference) for infusing a dose of ecstatic and reinvigorating lucidity into the diseasing doldrums of modern life."
