This is the first of hopefully many posts to come in a weekly series of posts which I’ve dubbed “Three Course Thursday”. Each week, I’ll post links to articles I’ve been digging which focus on improving yourself – physically, mentally, and spiritually. Think of it as a weekly three-course meal for self-improvement.
On to this week’s Three Course Thursday!

Now, the market for apps focused on managing Mental Health is rapidly expanding. Sarah Graham explores pros and cons of using apps for managing everything from sleep to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Spiritual: “Lack of Self Actualization Linked with Addiction” (via Healthunits.com) – Researchers at Florida Atlantic University recently published a study which found that lacking an “ultimate aim in life” is linked with mental health issues (such as anxiety and depression), as well as drug and alcohol abuse.
