Take charge of your own happiness with a proven method to build your mental fitness and focus on what matters.

Why do some of us bounce back after stresses and failures, while others struggle to pull through? It’s not about natural resilience. It’s that those who are able to move confidently through setbacks have developed good coping skills—and you can, too.

In this interactive guide, mental health expert Dr. Bill Howatt presents a proven five-part model to move you past the rut in your life and toward happiness. With clarity and compassion, he guides you through the steps to overcome challenges:

• Build awareness in each area of your life—career, finances, relationships, physical health, and mental health
• Take accountability and make healthy changes
• Learn how to build resilience
• Take action to achieve your goals

Along the way, he shows how using these tools transformed his own life, allowing him to succeed despite mental health challenges and learning difficulties.

Happiness and well-being are not destinations; they’re an outcome of choices you make, and ways of being and living daily. Stop Hiding and Start Living will empower you with the skills you need to make the kind of choices that will lead you to a happier, more fulfilling life.
