The Mind Workout: Twenty steps to improve your mental health and take charge of your life by Mark Freeman
Its well known that if you want to keep your body fit, you must do some regular exercise. But when it comes to our mental health, few of us take the time to maintain and improve it. For some reason, we expect to be in great mental shape without doing any work. And when we realise were struggling, we look for a quick and easy fix instead of developing the skills that will help us in the future.
Enter The Mind Workout - a home exercise programme for improving your mental health and fitness.
Developed as a result of Mark Freemans own recovery from mental illness, The Mind Workout combines mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). It outlines twenty easy-to-follow steps you can take to free yourself from the ways of thinking and behaving that cause mental health challenges in your life - from cutting out the compulsions that cause uncertainty, anxiety and distress to relieving stress and distraction.
The Mind Workout is the key to making the switch from a frenetic, anxiety-driven life to one thats based on your core values. It will leave you feeling mentally stronger, fitter and better equipped to navigate the complexities of everyday life.

He has taught Shakespeare's plays in Korea, tended gardens in Spain, filmed an Arabic-language documentary on youth employment in Cairo, and facilitated strategy workshops for executives at multiple Fortune companies. After recovering from several mental illness diagnoses, he now focuses on leveraging technology and design to help others navigate the complex changes necessary to improve and maintain great mental health and fitness. His favourite past-times include sitting and breathing.
