How the Learn to Live program works

A step-by-step guide to how we can help

Identify the problem

Life provides us with plenty of opportunities to feel stressed and worried, like relationships, health, work and finances. It’s normal to feel sad, lonely, afraid, nervous or anxious. If those feelings don’t seem to go away, it may be an indication of an issue with anxiety or depression.

We'll help you identify the thoughts and behavior patterns that perpetuate your issues, so you can work through them. You don't have to stay anxious and lonely. Your world can get bigger.

Understand how your mind works

Sometimes our own thoughts become too focused on perceived threats and our sense of helplessness. When we experience depression or anxiety, these thinking patterns become our norm. We worry that we will be miserable and stuck, and we start avoiding the things in life that would help us be more resilient.

Our programs are designed to help you recognize your fears and stressors, and understand how to deal with the thoughts and behavior patterns that are keeping you anxious or down.

Learn ways to deal with the problem

The Learn to Live programs are divided into eight lessons, each describing new ideas like Thought Inspection, Fear-facing and Goal Setting to help you develop new healthy habits. You’ll listen to Dr. Russ explain the thought processes and behaviors that get you stuck, and introduce the powerful tools of CBT in his quirky and engaging way. And learn to how to live the life you’ve been longing for.


Once you have the know-how, it's time to put it to work. Your homework provides you the opportunity to practice your new thinking and living on a daily basis.

We help you set your goals and track your progress from your personalized dashboard. We also help you identify the support you need to reach your goals: a Learn to Live coach, people you already know - your Teammates™, or others in the community who are on the same path.

Live the life you want to

By the end of the program, you will have learned to inspect your thoughts and change your behavior patterns, and will have taken the first steps towards becoming more engaged in your life.

You will be able to manage your thoughts, actions, and attention in more situations. You’ll have the tools and capabilities you need to truly live and maintain the life you've always wanted to live.
