Around New Year’s, we get obsessed with how to change ourselves instead of just expanding on what we’re already doing right. Maybe you finally organized one part of your space, and you want to tackle another. Or maybe you’re taking your supplements every morning, and now you want to actually eat breakfast too. Therapy helps you find your strengths, so you can ditch the extreme resolutions and make changes that really stick. If you’re thinking of starting therapy, give BetterHelp a try. It’s entirely online, designed to be convenient, flexible, and suited to your schedule.
