Every Action

It starts with the micro-decisions. Make your bed first thing in the morning or don’t. Read or don’t. Exercise or don’t. Spend time with family and friends or don’t. Each decision has an impact on …

James Clear was being interviewed recently about his book, Atomic Habits and said, “Every action you take is a vote for the person you wish to become.”

BAM!  Truth bomb.

I have been wanting to write a book for the last 18 months.  I’ve sketched out the format and tinkered with the working title…“planning” and have not written a single word of content for the book.  My goal isn’t to be an author.  It’s to write a book about something important to me.  The person I wish to become is a writer.  You have to actually “write” to become a writer.  Duh!

Clear tells us there are four laws to creating a good habit:

  1. Make it obvious
  2. Make it attractive
  3. Make it easy
  4. Make is satisfying

Layering in some of Clear’s additional advice—if I want to become a writer, I need to make it easy to write by setting up my writing environment and then commit to doing my newly developing habit of writing for only two minutes per day to start. I already journal longer than that each day so adding two minutes of dedicated content writing time should be easy to master.  My journaling is tied to something I love—first cup of coffee in the morning—and that makes it attractive.  And to make it satisfying I’ll track it on my calendar so I can see the tick marks for each day that I write and will want to avoid breaking my streak.

Suddenly writing a book is feeling less like running an ultramarathon in a day and more like couch to 5k training.  It’s manageable and easy for my brain to just focus on today and writing for two minutes.  I am becoming a writer.

This same habit building strategy can be used for learning to meditate, starting a new exercise program, becoming well read or starting any new positive habit.  What new habit are you going to incorporate into your life?  Let me know in the comments section.

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

On January 19th, 2023 Grant Blackford Mental Health, Inc. and Family Service Society, Inc. merged to create a bigger, better, and brighter mental health organization called Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
