happy, calm woman

A special note of gratitude to all of you who continue to make Wired for Happy an inspirational and insightful place to share mental health tips.

We still have a long way to go toward ending the stigma of mental illness, but I assure you each time you practice healthy mental health habits, you’re doing your part to change the culture around emotional well-being. Thank you for sharing the articles and resources here, too.

Most importantly, thank you for sharing the life-affirming message that mental health is everything.

In case you missed any of these, here are the top posts on Wired for Happy from 2016.

100 Smart Ways to Calm Your Anxious Mind


Speaking of in-demand, I heard you when you asked for easy to access mental health resources. For this reason, I created stand-alone modules for the three most insightful resources inside of Team Happy. Here you go:

Course: Overcoming Depression (without medication)

Course: Anger Management—Taming Your Temper


No doubt, in the coming year, Wired for Happy will continue to evolve and add more mental health resources. But it will always stay true to its core message that mental health is everything in life. To that end, know that what you do matters more than what you know.

And not to get too Freudian, but sometimes we need to get out of our heads and into a different plan of action to make change happen.

As a psychotherapist, I will continue to invite as many as possible to discover the truth in their lives and to know that despite your current situation, your childhood experiences or your DNA, mental health is attainable.

You just have to commit to taking one step at a time.

Thanks for the privilege of your attention. It means a lot!

Yours in practicing a healthy mindset,
—Linda Esposito
