1. Ted Rubin
Here is Mr.Ted Rubin’s mental health resolution:
⦁ You might know me as a positive guy if you have read, listened to, or watched my stuff over the years. I strive to be that way, especially when I’m interacting with others, but it’s never been an automatic thing for me when evaluating myself. In my younger days – still young, by the way, or at least like to think I am (Attitude, Perspective… Mindset) – I was my own worst critic. It was a challenge then, and it’s something that I still work on to this day.
⦁ The clarity of hindsight is a beautiful thing, and looking back I can see that a big problem for me was setting unrealistic goals, then getting frustrated by falling short. Why start with a mile, when you can train for the whole marathon? Because marathons are hard, and real-life doesn’t allow you to skip the first 25.2 miles just to get to the home stretch. I have learned, struggling with self-doubt? Try rewarding yourself for the little achievements
Today, I really try to take the opposite view and set incremental goals that lead to the big ones. And you know what? I’m having more success pursuing my ultimates, by rewarding myself for small, daily new habits. And I’m enjoying the process more without the internal pressure. I know I’ll get there, I know it takes time, and I always try to remind myself that incremental progress is meaningful. Again, none of that stuff is automatic for me. It’s not easy to give yourself a break, but it’s worth it.
And of course, I apply this very same principle to business relationships I’m looking to build, and the rebuilding of, and maintaining, my relationship with my daughters. I set short-term goals, stay present and available ALWAYS, and am thankful always for the love I have in my heart, and the moments we’ve had… that will always be mine (Attitude, Perspective… Mindset). #ThisDadWontQuit… #TheDadWhoWillAlwaysLove
⦁ The same basic idea works for any type of goal, personal or professional. There is only so much that you can do in a given day. Setting unrealistic goals just makes it more difficult to accomplish what you set out to do, and can easily short-circuit whatever progress you do make. Set attainable goals, accomplish what you set out to do each day, and give yourself some credit for a job well done. Over time, accomplishing those smaller goals lays the foundation for achieving the big ones… and most importantly leads to better mental health and a more peaceful life. #NoLetUp!
2. Bobby Umar
Here is Mr.Bobby Umar’s mental health resolution:
We are all dealing with 3 things and we are all managing it in our own unique ways.
The first is Uncertainty about what is happening next week, next month, next year and how industries will evolve.
The second is Overwhelm with all the voluminous information on how to cope with business, health, parenting, and much more, along with the disinformation, and finally the tasks of fitting it all in.
The third piece is our mental health and well-being, which is being tested with our uncertainty and overwhelm. That’s why it is critical for us to continue to connect, engage each other, build community, and support for one another.
This is true for teams, organizations, and even industry leaders together. So have the courage to ask for help, reach out and you will find the support there for you.
Despite this, I am doing my best through meditation, conversations, and emotional processing to see all of this as a Gift, and making the most of gratitude, pivoting, and finding new opportunities.

⦁ A solid work/life balance
⦁ An understanding life partner
⦁ Goals and a bucket list
⦁ ‘Paying it forward’
4. Alice Martin
Here is Ms. Alice Martin’s mental health resolution:
Be close to nature:
We all can get in our heads during these times and when I feel the anxiety or pressure I step out into nature and start taking pictures of all the beautiful things around. Changing your environment and focusing on other things will help recharge and give you more capacity when you are ready.
If I can’t get out I’ll listen to my favorite music, do yoga, or get messy with paints all day. The most important thing to do is to check in with yourself and allow yourself to take the time to feel free to enjoy things outside of your thoughts and other distractions.

⦁ Replace every negative thought with the opposing positive Divine truth. When some horrible feeling tries to infect my peace, I remember that I am Divinely Authorized to be healthy, happy, and wise. The opposite of fear is faith. The opposite of hate is love. When you love yourself, partner, family, friends, and all beings, you treat everyone with kindness and respect.
⦁ It takes practice to monitor your thoughts. The reward—peace, love, and harmony—makes your life infinitely blessed. When you maintain peace, love, and joy, you position yourself to help others.

Proper Morning routine:
My mental health resolution for a peaceful life includes a very important morning routine. I realized I’m more of a creature of habit than I thought. It helps me to know “what’s coming” during a time of much unknown. I like to get up early to do my workout and “morning chores” done just before the kids wake up. That way I can focus on them before my morning and afternoon meetings.
I also take the first 10 minutes at my computer to do personal reflection and a review of the day’s priorities. These relatively simple habits have helped bring peace amidst a time of uncertainty.

Daily meditation has changed my life, and for the better, for sure. It doesn’t have to be a system or through courses or complicated. I use Headspace (the app) and normally do 20 minutes in the morning, then sometimes wind down before sleep.
Self Reflection in Seclusion:
Sitting in quiet, calming my mind, and learning that the thoughts that cause anxiety and depression are just thoughts that can be acknowledged, then just ignored or dismissed has brought me great peace of mind.

Here is Ms.Theresa Snyder’s mental health resolution:
⦁ Retirement is a mental health resolution in itself. Two years ago, I was forced to retire due to a health issue. That was in 2018. I had not intended to retire until 2022. My situation has given me time to reflect.
⦁ We all wait for the perfect time, but I wonder if we shouldn’t just take the plunge. My days have been filled with deep breathing exercises, contemplative walks while communing with nature, and meditation.
⦁ I do my best to eat responsibly and get plenty of rest. I stay motivated by writing and assisting other authors with my editing services. That, and my garden, gives me a reason to get up in the morning. I believe that the body reflects your mental state. Attitude is everything.
Ms. Danielle is a Predictive & Relational astrologer and a lot of people trust her instincts and turn to her to seek suggestions, light and blessings. She is a certified and experienced astrologer, an amazing reiki Master, and a positive psych. She is a great writer as well.
Here is Ms. Danielle’s mental health resolution:
⦁ Now more than ever it is essential we tend to our mental health on a daily basis. I set ten minutes aside to meditate each day and limit the time I spend watching repetitive news cycles. I also choose my company wisely and restrict the time I spend engaging with energy vampires such as chronic complainers or those dwelling in fear and scarcity consciousness.
⦁ In A Course in Miracles there is a quote “I could see peace instead of this”. I am not always successful but I do try to use my power of discernment regarding whom and what I give my attention to.
⦁ When a person has negative commentary toward me I ask myself do I want to respond or can I choose peace? When someone mentions the amount of Covid-19 cases I choose to focus on the recovery rate. We may not be able to control what is going on around us but we do have the power of choice regarding what is happening within us.

⦁ Mental health is especially important to me, I struggle with chronic anxiety and depression, so I understand I need to care for my mind and body.
⦁ To stay at peace I exercise daily, even if it’s just 20 pushups. I write down positive affirmations and I practice kindness to others. Doing these things daily helps me stay positive , once my mind turns negative my productivity declines and I can not focus on achieving my goals.

⦁ Talking out loud to myself with gentleness is one way I’m attempting to shift and it seems to help in stressful situations when I’m feeling overwhelmed. It is worth bearing in mind that this may seem strange and forced at first but don’t give up. Self-kindness is key.

⦁ I am intentional about every aspect of my life and am purposeful about deciding what my mind, body and spirit digest on a daily basis.
⦁ I do my best to get a good night’s rest, to eat foods that nourish my body, to minimize my screen time, to educate myself on worldly events, to make decisions from the heart, and to remember and act on the knowledge that we are all ONE. Peace is not a passive outcome, it is only possible when we make it a priority.
15. Michael Paik
Here is Mr. Michael Paik’s Mental Health Resolution:
My mental health resolution for a peaceful life:
⦁ Understand that you don’t need any external opinions or validation to have an infinite self worth. Healthy self-confidence is built by gaining momentum in getting better every day little by little.
⦁ Some baselines that should be highly emphasized during the path to mental health include eating healthy, getting sun, drinking enough water, moving more than you stay still, and working towards a purpose in life.
⦁ For those struggling, don’t shut the world out. You are not alone. People are there to help and support you despite your penchant to automatically evade judgment. If you need help, seek help.
16. Claire Eastham
Here is Ms. Claire Eastham’s Mental Health Resolution:
I’m not sure that peaceful is a realistic end goal, in the same way, that aiming for total happiness can be damaging. It implies that we have total control over that when we don’t.
⦁ I work towards being healthy, stable, and pretty much being comfortable with every emotion.
⦁ I take care of my gut, that’s a priority as serotonin is made down there. I’m honest when I’m not feeling well, even when it’s inconvenient. I allow myself to feel negative emotions such as; fear, anger, and sadness, rather than trying to suppress them. (Seriously, when something bad happens I literally set aside five minutes to feel shit)! I have a glass of wine when I fancy one and watch an entire Netflix series lounging on the couch after I finish a work project. When/if the guilt creeps in I acknowledge the feeling, embrace it, remind my brain that I have a right to relax, and then carry on!
⦁ Most importantly, I laugh. Taking the piss out of my mental illness (when appropriate), not only gives me back control, but it loosens my muscles and regulates my breathing. It feels good.
17. Ericka Heald
Here is Ms. Erika Heald Mental Health Resolution:
I’ve tried to do two things to keep myself in a good space these days.
⦁ The first is to allow myself to get really mad about whatever it is, for a solid 15 minutes. But when that 15 minutes is up, I have to let it go, as Elsa sings in Frozen.
⦁ The second thing I’ve done that has been so helpful is to stop apologizing for things outside of my control. I hate to let people down or to not deliver what I consider to be my best work at all times, but when something happens that I didn’t have any control over, no matter how disappointing it is, recognize it and move on. When you fall into the trap of apologizing for things outside of your influence, all you do is give yourself a bigger load to carry.
