When one decides to start their journey down the road to mental wellness, they must do so knowing that there is no quick fix. Furthermore, if you started your quest for better mental well-being thinking you can take short cuts, you may end up where you started. This is why I coined my book and blog, the road to mental wellness. Going off road isn’t good.

Why, though? Well, anytime I have tried to take a shortcut on my way forward, I enviably got lost. Sadly, this always ended up with new challenges to overcome. And sometimes, I went so far astray, I wondered if it was the end. Something I like to call a state of negative chaos

Now, you can listen to our posts – go to our Audio blogs page.

We all seek happiness, and when something like PTSD disrupts our lives, we can go off the rails seeking relief. While we just want the pain to end, doing things like drugs and drinking alcohol do more harm than good. Again, seeking relief by going on the road to what will make life more fulfilling is tough but ultimately more sustainable.

Yes, the road to finding a better you is hard. Without question. But then again, so is spinning your tires in the mud going nowhere, waking up from a fog or a hangover. So, when you think about it, both paths are extremely difficult. However, only one gets you where you need to be, on the road to mental wellness.

Therefore, if both are exceedingly difficult, yet both are meant to manage our mental pain, why not choose life? After all, you want the pain to end, not your life. I know – I struggle with this every day too.

Regardless of your struggles, working on optimizing your health will pay off. The key ways to this are listed in the link below,

5 ways to maximize your mental health.

The road to success

Don’t let those “Gurus” fool you. There is no easy fix, no “do this one thing.” There just isn’t. In short, life is hard, always has been and always will be. It simply comes down to which difficulty do you want to choose? The fork in the road that takes you to a happier you, or one that promises a life of misery and negative chaos?

With that said, the long-haul approach can do amazing things that drugs and alcohol just can’t.


A road to mental wellness looks like:

Better health = more smiles with those you love.
More smiles = more happy memories
Ultimately, more amazing memories = more reasons to keep going down the road to mental wellness.

The best part of choosing this route? You’ll have the opportunity to gravitate towards those you love and make meaningful contributions to their lives. Conversely, when we chose dulling down our mental pain on an isolating trail of booze, the opposite is true.
