About the Book

As Susan Mifsud approached her fiftieth birthday, she realized her life was far from what she had anticipated. After twenty-six years of working in human resources and many more living with depression and anxiety, Susan found herself unemployed and seeking a new direction. She embraced “the upside of life’s transformations” and took the opportunity to embark on a master’s program with emphasis on mental health and wellness. She also decided not just to read about the advantages of positive psychology, but launched her own personal experiment. She focused on evidence-based research that suggests novel, intentional activities can positively impact mood and engaged in a series of firsts that were informed by her own challenges with mental illness. Susan chose a new activity connected to one of her ten “pillars of wellness” and shared her fifty fabulous feats through her blog site, This book chronicles her adventures and gives readers the tools and motivation to embark on their own feats.
