Good mental health requires a strong foundation-one built on key habits.
The 4 Ms of Mental Health
For myself, my family, and the patients I’ve worked with, I’ve selected 4 key, science-backed habits that not only promote excellent mental health on their own, but generate enough momentum for other good habits to develop. I call them the “4Ms of mental health”: mindfulness, meaningful engagement, movement, and mastery. (You can learn more about the secrets to making and maintaining good habits in my book, Practical Optimism!)
