These days we’re all so caught up being busy, our mental health often takes a backseat to all the things that must be done now, now, now! Argh. Life in the digital age can be exhausting, and unfortunately mental health issues still seem to have a weird stigma attached to them, despite the fact that approximately 3 million Australians are living with depression. 

Identifying the factors which impact our mental wellbeing is something we can all personally benefit from, and in turn we can learn to help others. So, what’s the deal? What can we do in the short term to improve our everyday lives?

Getting what we want out of life doesn’t always come easy, and quite often we’re not even sure what it is exactly that we’re chasing in the first place. And even if you do manage to pinpoint what it is that you want, getting it can seem stressful or out of reach, and so it gets set aside for another time, or forgotten about completely. Setting goals is something we all know we should be doing, but many of us don’t – at least, not until it’s time for the annual New Year’s resolutions. One reason for this is that while setting a goal seems fairly straightforward, actually achieving it isn’t always so. But fear not, there are many ways to get where you want to be, and that’s what this post is all about – a tried and tested method for setting and achieving your goals, whatever they may be.
