Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows that regular exercise and weight training lead to physical strength. But how do we strengthen ourselves mentally for the truly tough times? And what should we do when we face these challenges? Or as psychotherapist Amy Morin asks, what should we avoid when we encounter adversity? Through her years counseling others and her own experiences navigating personal loss, Morin realized it is often the habits we cannot break that are holding us back from true success and happiness. Indulging in self-pity or agonizing over things beyond our control, obsessing over past events, resenting the achievements of others, or expecting immediate positive results all hold us back.
Now, for the first time, Morin expands upon the 13 Things from her viral post and shares her tried-and-true practices for increasing mental strength. Increasing your mental strength can change your entire attitude. It takes practice and hard work, but with Morin's specific tips, exercises, and troubleshooting advice, it is possible to not only fortify your mental muscle but also drastically improve the quality of your life.

Starts Off Slow

The 13 things not to do are fairly obvious, like don't wallow in self-pity, don't dwell on the past, don't worry about things that can't be controlled, and don't worry about pleasing others. If you are wasting time doing any of these things, this book is a good reminder to let those things go. The book also offers steps to take to build a more positive attitude and gives examples of how other people have overcome their hardships. It starts off slow with the author talking about her own grief following the death of her husband (which felt like the beginning a long, sad story). However, it gets better after a few chapters.
