Abbigail Glen’s plan was to start saving to open her own bookstore once she got out of debt. She resigned from her job as an HR professional to do just that, though it looked different than she imagined! We talk about how her pop-up bookstore came to be and what it has been like to be flexible in entrepreneurship. Abbi shares with us how her business fits in the context of her mental health journey.
We explore how reading and writing can be mental escapes and contribute to one's emotional wellness. Not only is the bookstore on a quest to provide its supporters with great books; but also create amazing lifestyle products made exclusively with readers, writers, and dreamers in mind. These are all great for coping with anxiety and depression!
Therapy highlight: What does happiness really mean? How do we find fulfillment in emotional wellness, psychological flexibility, and social and emotional skills?
