Becoming Mentally Healthy by Paula Sweet at Absolute Mind

Hi, I'm Paula Sweet, and you're about to step into a world where your mind's potential is limitless. In this episode, we're unlocking the secrets of your brain's chemistry to supercharge your focus and motivation. Forget about waiting for inspiration to strike; it's time to take control. Even when it doesn't feel good.

We'll explore why that 'start-up' stress is actually your brain's way of gearing up for success, and how dopamine โ€“ your mental cheerleader โ€“ celebrates every small victory, keeping you driven towards your goals.

I'll also reveal why internal satisfaction trumps external applause every time, and how recognising every little win fuels your journey to a healthier, happier you.

So, if you're ready to transform your focus into your superpower and turn everyday actions into a series of triumphs, this episode is for you.

Remember, it's not just about the destination; it's about loving every step of the journey. Let's dive in!
