Types of Health & Wellness
When it comes to achieving overall well-being, it's important to recognize that our mental, physical, environmental, financial, occupational, social, intellectual, and spiritual wellness are all interconnected. Each aspect of our well-being affects and influences the others, creating a complex system of interdependence.
For example, our mental and emotional well-being can have a significant impact on our physical health. Stress, anxiety, and depression can lead to physical symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, and muscle tension. Similarly, our physical health can impact our mental state, as poor sleep or chronic pain can lead to mood changes and decreased cognitive function. Overuse of social media and technological devices and lack of time in nature can lead to worsening mental health issues.
We believe that a major problem with our complex, modern society is that our many people do not view health and wellness holistically nor are they aware of the many natural ways to treat the issues they are experiencing. For example, doctors may be treating physical or mental health problems that are being caused or exacerbated by our society's inherent demands for overworking. Furthermore, we aim to encourage people to educate themselves on the many ways that many unhealthy modern behaviors can part of the problem and encourage them to work towards a holistic solution.
