“Stop Hiding and Start Living: How to say F-IT to fear and develop mental fitness” a new book by Dr. Bill Howatt. What could be so hard about being a human being? Could it be keeping a loving relationship on the right track, paying bills and managing debt, worrying about the future (global warming, pandemics, geopolitical tension), managing the demands of family, parent care, and work. The fact is most all of us have something happening in our life that is a distraction, drain or concern. The frequency, duration and intensity of the stress we are perceiving can predict the degree it may negatively impact our mental health and happiness.

That is why Dr. Bill Howatt created the F-it model to help people who are feeling stuck in one part of their life to move from fear, failure, focus, finishing to flourishing. In this webinar, he will combine a unique blend of personal and professional experience to share what he learned that helped him move through one of his biggest personal life challenges. Dr. Bill will share a use-friendly non-clinical model for how we can improve our mental fitness.

We know that what stops us from making life better is fear, it can keep us parked in areas of our life for more time than we would like it to but what we also know is that what we believe is possible for ourselves will also come true, good or bad. Dr. Bill will inspire you to believe that we can move past fear when we are motivated, when we have a plan and when we are ready to move through the steps required to move from where we are to where we want to be.
