#019: Personal Goal Setting is Important for Resilient Mental Health

Goal setting can be used in a lot of different ways. We can use goal-setting in our personal lives to move to a healthier way of life or build closer relationships. We can use goal-setting in our professional lives to better manage our time or move to that next position. Goals also tend to be specific and measurable. In this podcast, we are going to shift perspective on traditional goal setting and speak about some other ways to use this traditional practice. Not all goals have to be specific or measurable and we can also use goals for personal empowerment and to ground us during times of uncertainty.

Join us on this episode hosted by former Navy Seal, Dan Luna, and Psychologist Dr. Chris Frueh.
