Twenty years ago when I struggled with depression, I had no idea about the tools I needed to stay mentally happy until my psychologist introduced me to them. Then I thought, “Why am I only hearing about this now?” We don’t wait until people have heart attacks to teach them about healthy eating habits or regular exercise so why are we not teaching people how to stay mentally healthy before they encounter difficulties in life? Life is hard and wonderful at the same time. Let’s empower people with the knowledge they need to not only stay in the game but also up their game! And that is exactly what positive psychology is all about.
