'New Path Towards Mental Wellness' – mental health article in Thrive Global

Good news! Our founder Dr. Helena Lass has her second mental health article published on Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global. It’s her sixth article published in global media. Your colleagues and friends could benefit a lot from knowing how to secure mental well-being and a healthy mind, so please do share those mental wellness articles. By doing so you can promote the spreading of soft skills that secure mental fitness and reduce work related mental health costs.

Dr. Lass’s latest article, 'New Path Towards Mental Wellness', maps out our inner systems and brings into focus awareness-based intrapersonal skills. Dr. Lass explains that learning intrapersonal skills is the opener of all other skills, much like learning to read opens access to new knowledge and therefore enables the development of new knowledge and understanding. She sees that intrapersonal skills are the foundation of a successful career and booster of productivity.

The cascade of mental health problems often starts as, “People react constantly to data presented in their daily lives with the activation of an automatic emotional-mental process, closely followed by a physical reaction, resulting in subsequent behavior.” Only once we begin to understand why we are the way we are, can we set forth a pathway towards better mental wellness.


Dr. Lass writes in this article that: "Awareness forms the basis of all our intra-personal skills. Learning to use and lead our internal instruments includes knowing what our attention is focused upon. This is the prerequisite to effective self-leadership – being aware of the whereabouts of your attention – the most valuable asset of the 21stcentury." In her article, Dr. Lass also shares why she is fascinated by the new framework that enables to understand the inner domain of human beings outlined by her awareness teacher and successful author Ingvar Villido.

Dr. Lass has three pillars in bringing forward her new approach to mental wellness:

  • Her medical education and medical practice-based approach towards proactive mental wellness,
  • Our team’s practical entrepreneurial skills and
  • Her decade-long background of awareness practices. 

Often new approaches are born when different areas of activities and expertise emerge. This is also the case with the new proactive mental wellness approach for workplace well-being in the case of Wellness Orbit. It took a huge amount of learning, testing and practical trial before the practical mental wellness e-trainings for you and your team were born. In this story, Dr. Lass shares some of the backgrounds behind this very practical workplace mental fitness approach. It is well worth reading if you want to know your own inner domain better.
