Quick Review:

In the introduction to this 4-part article, I went over some of the concepts underlying “the systems approach” and why it works.

I explained how systems and habits help us conserve cognitive resources for when they are really needed.

I went on to add that despitemy dislike of articles and books that offer seemingly fix-it-ALL tips and tricks, I still share online tips myself from time to time — and that I was about to share five of them, despite the fact that  I strongly prefer sharing underlying principles, so that anyone reading might be able to figure out how to tweak to fit. 

  • I appended the caveat that nothing works for everyone

    1. You’re welcome, Madelyn. Most people (like me) know precious little about mental health issues and how the brain works. I find your articles helpful and I’m sure others do too. I also think you need to be less wary as long as you acknowledge the limitations of your “tips” as you have been doing. Hugs!

      1. Thanks, John. I will be focusing more on sharing “tips” this summer, accompanied by the “tweak to fit” caution.

        btw-I feel similar about your history posts. I always learn SO much.

        I know how long it takes me to research and edit my monthly MH Advocacy calendars, so it truly boggles my mind at how you are able to put your Believe it or Not posts together so much more frequently. (No wonder you don’t get enough sleep – lol.)
