Hi there, I'm Jordan Brown. I'm a mental health advocate and social worker who believes in the power of authentic mental health content.
I started The Mental Health Update to empower others with accessible, meaningful mental health information. Each issue contains helpful mental health articles and actionable strategies to improve your mental health.
I'm glad you're here.
Here are my top posts for improving your mindset.
They are backed by my relatability guarantee.
Because we could all use a good mindset shift every once in a while.
And improving your mindset can enhance many areas of your life.
In all honesty, what you're asking when you say, "How do I improve my mindset?" is about how you can change your perspective in life to get the outcomes that you want.
You're saying that you want to see your life in a new way.
Massive mental health gains are just the nice little side effect that comes from improving yourself.
No matter what your mindset looks like right now, you will find timeless wisdom in the posts in this section.
From being mentally checked out of life...
To being consumed with overthinking about what you have to do...
These posts will help you take an honest look at your current mindset from multiple angles.
There isn't one right way to improve your mindset.
What it takes is consuming as much varied information as possible--and then seeing what it means to you.
Mindset change doesn't happen overnight.
But it won't happen at all if you don't commit to it right now.
