May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Inc. Australia have featured Dr. Gladys’ secrets to improving overall happiness. With rising rates of burnout, layoffs and just general emotional drain, Marcel Schwantes from Inc.Australia offers some ideas with the help of Dr. Gladys’ new book, The Well-Lived Life (out now!).
“Dr. Gladys McGarey is often called the mother of holistic medicine, and is still going strong and actively consulting as a physician. In her new book, The Well-Lived Life, she shares her secrets to a century of health and happiness.” Dr. Gladys promotes curiosity and community along with love and life-long learning. Her strategy of choosing love over fear has gotten her to 102 and we have lots to learn from her.
Dr. Gladys also promotes paying close attention to where you spend your energy. The article concludes, “Perhaps because our time and energy are such valuable resources, we should invest this energy into what is meaningful and rewarding. When we direct our energy towards something we love, we might find that we actually get some energy back. So, find what is worth your energy, and direct your energy towards that. And as Dr. McGarey writes: “As long as there is life, there is energy. It’s up to us to invest it in what matters.””
