Amy Morin on How to be Mentally Strong



Amazon Music •  Apple Podcasts •  SpotifyOvercastWondery


This episode comes out for free on 10/8/2022

Ryan talks to author Amy Morin about her book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, how to find agency in your everyday life, overcoming mentally challenging situations by gaining perspective, and more.

Amy Morin is a psychotherapist turned “accidental” author. In her early 20’s Amy experienced grave loss – both her mother and her husband passed only a few years apart. In 2013, during one of my lowest points in her life, Amy wrote a letter to herself about all the things mentally strong people don’t do. When she was done, she had a list of 13 things that could rob her of mental strength if she let them. She has written 4 books, including,13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do, 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do, and 13 Things Strong Kids Do. Amy is also editor and chief at Verywell Mind, an award-winning resource for reliable, compassionate, and up-to-date information on mental health topics.
