I thought I was a basket case.
Anxiety and depression consumed me until I took ownership of the part I played in creating my vortex of misery. It was from this space I had the epiphany that anxiety and depression are states; not illnesses. They are simply an SOS signal from within, an alert to re-evaluate your lifestyle, beliefs, values, thinking and the way you view the world.
If you are prepared to make a new decision to wake up, step up and own it you too can create a compelling future.
The Happy Mind Movement is a solution based approach to getting you out of the problem and back into life. We look at where you are now, where you want to go and what needs to change to get you there.
This book has been written to give you a KICK START to living the life you deserve.
Change and growth come from STEPPING UP and OWNING the part you play in this life you have created. Until you take ownership you will stay stuck in your vortex of misery.
The biggest lesson I learned on my journey was that I was the cause of most of my problems. It was when I took responsibility for my mental and physical health and took action to change the way I lived my life I achieved great results. I now live by the philosophy “when I change; everything changes”
I am now excited to share what I discovered in this book so you too can find happiness, confidence, health and vitality. The Happy Mind Movement is based on a holistic approach to food, movement and personal development to free you from the states of anxiety and depression.
I have found that long term mental and physical wellbeing is made up of lots of components that come together to create a dynamic formula.
