Even more learning about Psychology and Mental Health

I can’t recommend “The Science of Well-being” course enough. You should all definitely check it out.

I just finished the course, and I’m challenging myself to a 4 week rewirement challenge. Knowing all the information and putting it into practice is another. So the 4 week rewirement challenge will help me put theory into practice and see if it will help me become happier.

So far, I challenged myself to meditate, exercise, make social connections, sleep at least 8 hours, appreciate beauty and savoring at least once a week. Okay, the exercise and social connections part comes with my current job, so that part is easy ish. I never had problem sleeping, so that’s also in the bag.  But meditation is something that I just started doing and it’s quite relaxing.

I downloaded Insight Timer, which is full of guided meditations.

Aside from the Well-being class, I’m also trying out Moodgym.

Moodgym is like an interactive self-help curriculum based on concepts of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and you can learn skills to help prevent and manage symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Udemy had a sale last Mother’s day and I bought 2 CBT courses by Libby Seery. I find the pacing a bit slow, but the information was very useful.

I also signed up to a few more free courses on Coursera on positive psychiatry.

If you are based in Australia (which I am now, as of the moment), you can also some free courses on This Way Up. As opposed to talking head videos, the lessons are presented in a series of slides with characters and talk bubbles like a comic book.

I really want to do a Graduate Certificate in Psychology or Mental Health, but unfortunately I don’t have the finances for it.
