Change is possible. There is hope. You just need a roadmap toward that change. On today’s episode, Duane speaks with Lee LaMee, a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner who has a lot of wisdom and experience in the field of change. 

Lee talks about his book, The Theory & Practice of Well-Being: Your Comprehensive & Actionable Guide to the Good Life, which he has put together in a digestible, down-to-earth, pragmatic way so people can take action. He also shares his personal experience, having worked on both sides of this field – the medical side and the mental health side – and how that all came together to create a guide to help people live their best life.

With a background in various settings including oncology, psychiatry, Veterans Affairs, and medical-surgical nursing, Lee studied in Amsterdam before continuing his studies in the United Kingdom. He has worked as a registered nurse and is also a U.S. Air Force veteran. Lee is very passionate about human behavior and helping others improve their mental well-being. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • The correlation between illnesses and the mind-body connection
  • Two reasons people change
  • The 5A’s: the foundational concepts to forward your own sense of well being
  • The antidote to chronic guilt and shame
  • The role of spirituality and the invisible line in life
