"Life In The Past Lane" is a book that focuses on better days ahead. Focus forward on better days ahead, instead of focusing on the issues, problems, and concerns of our past by being more aware and more willing to make adjustments to make things better for you and your loved ones. Included are strategies to better manage stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns in our lives. You will learn how to dispute negative thoughts with the evidence that it will be okay. Thinking about what you can do differently to make things better for you and your loved ones is an important question you can ask yourself each day.


This book will benefit anyone who may be struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns. Written to appeal to readers of all ages, this journey through childhood, adolescence, and adulthood is not only motivational and inspiring but informative and helpful. The ups and downs and challenges we face and strategies to overcome these challenges are well documented throughout this book. Like all good stories, Life In The Past Lane has a beginning, a middle, and an ending, with the ending actually being a new beginning for you, as you utilize the strategies from this book to live your best life. You will find strategies used by a psychologist and strategies using a common-sense approach backed by the lived experiences of others to help guide you and support you to focus forward on better days ahead. Learn how to focus forward on where you are going instead of focusing on where you have been.

About the author
Rod Woitas is a Registered Psychologist in the Province of Alberta and a Registered Clinical Counselor in the Province of British Columbia. He was fortunate enough to spend 20 years in education working with children, adolescents, and young adults. This led him to his work as a counselor and psychologist. Much of his private practice has focused on helping clients cope and manage anxiety, stress, depression, and better navigate issues, problems, and concerns regarding relationships in their life. His observations as an educator, school counselor, clinical counselor, and psychologist will provide a different perspective than most would hold. Leaning on the lived experiences of his life and the lived experiences of others he has worked with, provides Rod with more insight into the struggles we all have, and some of the solutions to the problems that we all hope to find. His main goal in life right now, through his private practice and writing this book and the ones to follow, is to support people in any way that he can. He wants to provide support for people, so they do not feel alone, sad, depressed, or nervous, worried, and anxious. He believes you get what you give, and that we should do the right things at the right times. He believes this not just because Karma is circling the earth, but because kindness is what we should all be focused on.
