The cover is flexible and a vibrant blue. This year’s colours are navy, forest green, ultimate grey, dusty blush and Tahitian teal. You’ll be able to find your diary easily and it’s lightweight if you like to carry your diary with you throughout the day.
The company’s vision is ‘changing the meaning of mental health’. Where we live in a world where people think and talk about their mental health like their physical health.
The book starts with explaining the philosophy behind the Resilience Agenda, creating positive mental fitness and how the mental fitness toolkit works. We need to focus on the five pillars of wellbeing – movement, nutrition, sleep, connection and mindset. We can learn skills for the training framework – optimism, mindfulness, gratitude, reframing and perspective.
There are some guidelines on how to use your diary, but it’s been designed so that you can make it your own with journaling, sketching or stickers. There’s a list of support services at the back of the book.
Look out for online webinars to help you make the most of your planner. There’s even a podcast you can listen to.
The online shop stocks ruled journal notebooks, dot grid notebooks, and branded LAMY Invictus Rollerball pens. Order your diary from the Resilience Agenda website.
About Resilience Agenda
Resilience Agenda was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2016 by Hadleigh Fischer.
Growing up in a family affected by poor mental health, Hadleigh wanted to find a way to share a more positive, pro-active and inspiring message around mental health with those around him.
Despite being close to mental ill-health all his life, Hadleigh didn’t feel the current approach to mental health awareness spoke to someone like him in an empowering way, or help him build the resilience to increase his mental health when things were going well.
Mental Fitness is the idea that we can be more positive, pro-active, and preventative in how we approach our mental health and wellbeing. An easily understood metaphor, Resilience Agenda uses Mental Fitness to make the insights of positive psychology more relevant, engaging and inspiring to a wider variety of people.
Just like Physical Fitness, Mental Fitness requires motivation, time and effort. It can be hard work involving setbacks. But it can also be fun, social, and make us feel great. It can give us clarity, and might just even prevent us from becoming unwell too.
And the best thing? Mental Fitness doesn’t assume you have to have a problem to get started.
