Mental strength is not the same thing as mental health and it’s important to know the difference so you can learn how to manage your emotions when life gets tough. Tom’s guest today is Amy Morin, a successful author, licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist focused on helping people grow stronger mentally. Amy sheds light on why building your mental strength isn’t all about being tough, easy ways to start building your mental strength, and why it’s never too late to create a positive shift in your life!
