If you feel stuck, combining these three strategies could be key to improving your mental health—it starts with ‘A’ for Attitude
By Carol Rickard
This past weekend I gave the peer keynote presentation at the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) NJ’s State Conference entitled: “Unlocking Wellness Within.“
My philosophy is: We ALL have wellness inside of us and with the right tools & resources, we are able to “unlock it”!
Today, I want to introduce you to the ‘combination’ I discovered back in 1993 that I’ve been living and teaching ever since then!
My promise is this: IF you follow & use all three parts of the combination, you will find yourself:
“Unlocking Wellness Within”!
The 1st Part of the combination: A
A = Attitude
There are two important things to understand about how attitude impacts us:
- It is a direction: The question is which direction are you heading? Each day, where is your attitude focused? Are you heading towards wellness or illness?
- It is energy: There are only two kinds, positive and negative. We cannot expect positive experiences to show up in our life if our attitude is negative!
2nd part of the combination: B
B = Blueprint
I have created the L.I.F.E. Wellness Blueprint & written a whole book on it called Transforming Illness to Wellness. I have also written about it several times in this blog!
3rd part of the combination: C
C = Coping Tools
Having the “right tools” to help manage life is critical! My weekly post is dedicated to teaching what I call LifeTOOLS!
Using the wrong tools, like food & other substances, just keeps us STUCK in illness.
So, there you have it! The right combination for “Unlocking Wellness Within”.
I will focus in more on each one of these areas in posts to come—so stay tuned & check back each week.
However, this combination, just like any other combination, CANNOT work if you don’t USE IT!
ACTION is Required…
