A new year, a new you! A new chapter! A clean slate! A fresh start!
However you phrase it, the new year offers a symbolic opportunity for renewal and self-refection. It’s a time to nurture our aspirations and set new goals.
The idea of a clean slate sparks optimism, motivating people to leave behind challenges or disappointments of the past and embrace the possibilities that the future holds.
Studies show that about 43% of people give up on their resolution by the end of January, and only 9% of people see it through the entire year. But you can set yourself up for success in 2024 and beyond by making a resolution that enhances all areas of your life — improving your mental health.
And the best news is that insurance-covered telepsychiatry makes keeping your resolution simple, affordable, and accessible. Aka sustainable.
From navigating the complexities of your career to improving connections in your relationships, telepsychiatry can help improve your daily experiences and enhance your overall wellness. Here are a just a few reasons telepsychiatry in 2024 is the best resolution you can make.
Restore your work/life balance.
Gone are the days when your work desk has to double as a stress chamber. With telepsychiatry, you can free yourself from those lunchtime anxiety spirals and check in with your doctor instead. Virtual appointments help you declutter your mind, improving focus and boosting productivity. This newfound work-life harmony won’t let deadlines dictate your mental state. You can regain control, prevent burnout, and find a renewed sense of clarity with the help of bonmente‘s telepsychiatry team.
Build relationship resilience.

It provides a safe space to address concerns, improve communication, resolve conflict, and build bridges. As easy to access as your Maps app, telepsychiatry is like your relationship GPS for a smoother journey.
Gain parenting patience.
Raising tiny humans, especially if they’re miniature versions of yourself, isn’t for the faint of heart. But telepsychiatry can help you build your parenting playbook. It offers a judgment-free zone to discuss the challenges and triumphs of parenthood. From overcoming tantrums to maintaining your sanity during the chaos, virtual therapy sessions help equip you with the skills to be the parent your kids (and you) need.
Enjoy some stress-free socialization.
If you don’t have a little social anxiety after all that pandemic induced isolation, count yourself as one of the lucky ones. Social anxiety can make leaving the comfort of your bubble seem way too not-worth-it, but with telepsychiatry, you can learn strategies to navigate awkward silences and networking nightmares and start enjoying the perks of human connection again.
Rediscover your hobbies and interests.
Remember those hobbies you pushed to the back burner because you got too busy to actually do the things you enjoy doing? Telepsychiatry is just the permission slip you need to dust off that hobby box and get back at it. Free up some space for creative endeavors and passion pursuits by addressing mental roadblocks. Whether it’s painting, writing, reading, traveling, or rock climbing, virtual therapy can help fuel your creativity and rekindle your zest for life.
Improve your sleep health.
One night of bad sleep is enough to affect how you think, how you manage stress, and how you regulate your emotions. A week of “enh” sleep, and you’re on the path to a waking nightmare. Telepsychiatry is a low-stress way to explore sleep issues and trial different interventions to see what will work for you.
“A good night’s sleep acts as the body’s nightly rejuvenation session,” said Catalina Villa, a psychiatrist at bonmente. “Adequate and quality sleep is as important to your life as food and water.”
Build lasting resilience.
The reality is, life is going to keep happening in 2024, bringing its usual twists and turns and ups and downs. What can make this year better than others is investing in a mental resilience umbrella through telepsychiatry and turning challenges or uncertainties into opportunities for growth.
