The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is then expected to issue a recommendation to all Americans 50 and older to receive the shot.

This wake up call prompted Mr Lawlor to get help, studying techniques like manifestation to help get his mind and body back on track.

While he was relatively successful on his own, Mr Lawlor was still struggling with anxiety which led him to meeting his soon to be co-founder Mr Hisee, 44.

Mr Hisee is well-known in the psychological field, and considered the UK's top unconscious mind therapist.

Mr Lawlor shared: "Because I had looked into studies on the mind before, myself and Rob instantly clicked and stayed connected after our first session. We both were looking into journaling for ourselves and just decided that the choices on the market were terrible so we just thought why not make one ourselves combining all of our experience & knowledge."

Combining their perspectives, experiences and knowledge, the pair created The Manifestation Journal, a guided journal helping users to reprogram their brain and improve their mental health.

Mr Hisee shared how visualisation, a staunch point in the journal, is a big part of his own life, saying he visualised the journal being a best seller.

He explained: "I'm the author of this book and the author of my life, everything I do gets made twice - starting off as a thought."

Mr Hisee explained this concept of everything being done twice, first inside one's mind and then in reality, is a nurtured trait amongst some of the worlds' richest figures.

He explained: "What did Steve jobs, Elon Musk and Richard Branson all have in common? They're all visionaries, they're not just good self talkers. So visualise the ultimate outcome and your brain will guide you along the journey - so just enjoy it.

"You must have a vision of the outcome you desire, whether that's the amount of money or the dream job you want. Then as you work towards the outcome, your brain will also kick in to support you."

The pair shared that they have "real concern" that a worsening economic situation will see more Britons struggling with mental health difficulties.

Mr Lawlor advised people "focus on creating a better future" instead of dwelling on negatives of the past and present.

"We are all creators and we can create our futures starting from today. Whether it's money or your physical health, you can improve your situation. Don't worry about your current situation as you CAN change it if you know how, that's why we started the journal to teach people how to do this."

Mr Hisee added: "The journal teaches you so much from the RAS to the laws of the universe. It also teaches you how to focus on what you want and not what don't want as that's more important than positivity because I could be POSITIVE that I'd fail my exam.

"As mental health nationwide continues to worsen due to a variety of factors like the pandemic, the crisis in Ukraine and cost of living crunch."
