How Strong Leaders Build Mental And Emotional Well-Being

It’s becoming increasingly apparent how important our mental and emotional well-being is. From leaders’ moral failures to the stories of leaders and pastors committing suicide, the focus has shifted from results to health.

Our mental health matters. Our emotional health matters. 

While we know this, we regularly ignore their importance. We look for ways to skirt around our mental and emotional health. We believe we can take care of it at some later time.

You can’t. And you won’t.

In fact, you might get to a point you can never take care of them. You’ll get to a point where you make the ultimate decision in your life.

I don’t want that to happen to you. I want you to live a vibrant, thriving life. I want you to be healthy and whole.
