You Don't Always Need Much to Change Your Life
Change your life.
What a thought.
It seems so overwhelming.
In this short update, I hope to show you that you don’t always need much to change your life.
It can happen in a heartbeat.

The Key to Embracing Big Changes
Most of us are taught that change needs be hard, that it’s a long and laborious process. For some things, this is true.
It’s not a physical possibility for you to be in one place on Earth at one moment and then a thousand miles away the next.
But, for other situations, change can be instantaneous.
Take the nature of emotions, for example. You can go from happy to sad to angry to amazed all within the span of one hour. Do you know when one emotion shifted to the next? Are you able to pinpoint the exact moment when the change occurred? Probably not.
And so much of life is like this.
We start down one path only to immediately realize that it’s not going to work. This can trigger a long grieving process, or it can be the start of a beautiful new chapter in our lives.
Too often, we only see this years down the road, with the acute benefit of hindsight.
It’s not necessary, though.
Anything can happen at any time. Moments can be dull, or they can be alive with the sense of possibility. Much of the time, what is different is not the moment itself–but the way in which we respond to it.
Change is a process that is always alive.
We must train ourselves to be alive along with it.

What did you think of this short Sunday update? I hope it caused you to think about your life in a new way.

Be well this weekend,
Jordan

P.S. If this spoke to you, I hope you’ll share it with others. You can start the change process.

The Mental Health Update is an inspirational email newsletter containing authentic mental health articles that make mental health issues like depression, anxiety, OCD meaningful AND accessible.

This is different from typical mental health newsletters.

It's not just an Anxiety Email Newsletter or a Depression Email Newsletter - It's timeless mental health wisdom and inspiration to start your day in a thoughtful, uplifting way.

I was tired of other mental health newsletters blasting out generic lists of links. And I was especially tired of other mental health newsletters not focusing on the everyday reality of mental health issues.

So I decided to come up with something I wanted to read. This mental health newsletter is like a caring friend that just wants you to feel better.

Mental health awareness articles don't need to be all doom and gloom and filled with jargon.

With The Mental Health Update email newsletter, you'll get practical mental health information, tips, and new ways to view the world.

We discuss topics like anxiety, depression, OCD, the mental health to mental illness spectrum, social and communication skills, and much more.

You deserve to get helpful mental health information that you can actually apply to your life.

This is what a few subscribers had to say about this newsletter:

"If you haven't yet subscribed to Jordan's daily newsletter, you absolutely should. It's chock full of good stuff to read and will help make your day better. Not unlike a daily vitamin for your mental health and soul..." - JR

"Daily encouragement from someone who has “been there” when it comes to mental health struggles. Comes in the form of stories and simple, actionable tips for reframing and working with - and through - your issues. One of the few newsletters that has survived my ruthless inbox decluttering sprees. Highly recommended!" - Kelila

"Jordan's mental health update is a welcomed daily email in my inbox. It often provides me with a chance to break from the mundane tasks of working in an office and take a moment for myself to hear his thoughtful and well put together thoughts on many aspects of mental health. As someone who works in the psychology field it's often a nice reminder and way of grounding myself to all the great work that's going on and the journey we all must take in supporting mental health. Thank you Jordan!" - Rob
