According to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Health) 20.6% of U.S. adults experienced mental illness in 2019 (51.5 million people). This represents 1 in 5 adults.   In this episode I chat with Mel Schwartz,  psychotherapist, marriage counselor, author, 2xTEDx speaker, podcaster and leadership consultant. We chatted on a variety of mental health related topics and his book, "The Possibility Principle - How Quantum Physics Can Improve the Way You Think, Live, and Love".    I've been a follower of Mel's work for a few years and have benefited from many of the principles he teaches, especially around managing thoughts and anxiety. For more information on Mel, check out melschwartz.com.   Video version: https://youtu.be/02E9hvde4PQ Questions or comments? Leave them here or reach to mike@mikeinspiresme.com.

"What If I Forget To Breathe?" is ridiculous, right? Why on earth would I forget the breathe? Breathing is an automatic process, so why worry about?

I'll talk about how my mental health has affected my life, what I have done to manage my thoughts and live a more peaceful life. Questions or comments?
