Mental Agility is my answer to “Mental Toughness”. A cliched bit of advice that, in my opinion, has been overused to the point of meaninglessness.

Mental toughness boils down to:

  • Just do it

  • Put your head down

  • Find a helmet

  • Grind it out

Grit, and perseverance are valuable virtues for any human to develop; I am not arguing against these virtues.

I attack the lack of strategy.

Tough it out, is fantastic advice to someone who already knows what to do and has the ability to do it. Otherwise, it is impractical and dangerous advice to someone who has no idea what they are doing.

I collected a wide and varied set of tools in the pursuit of permanent recovery from depression and anxiety. I write about philosophy, and different modes of thought that I experiment with to refine my perspective on life. I speak to the unique human ability to change our minds, and I show how to use tools to accomplish that change.

I firmly believe that since these tools have been tested on someone, like myself, with a severe mental illness; they can help improve the lives of those with AND without mental illness.
