Your mental health affects everything in your day and your life. To optimize it, therapy, medications and even meditation aren’t the only answers. There are many small moves you can make that help boost your mental well-being and let you get out of your own way and get what you want out of life.
Feeling good about your mental wellness doesn’t mean you never have a bad day. What it means is that when those days come, you can get through them with more resilience and less drag. And maybe you can learn to set yourself up for even fewer of them in the future.
This plan offers four weeks of actionable strategies, tips, and insights that can help you do things differently, reframe your thoughts, get out of your own way, and experience joy and awe. Basically, it tones up your mental well-being.
