Health takes many forms, including physical, mental, and emotional. There is the health of the individual and of relationships. Things are often described as being “healthy” or “unhealthy”. I think sometimes it’s not that simple. In this age of so much information, there is so much conflicting information that it can be confusing to know what is really healthy and what is not. In addition, I think what is healthy in one situation or for one person sometimes may not be healthy in another. So how do we know? What should we be doing for our bodies? What about our minds? How should we handle emotions, when to let ourselves feel them and when to work on changing them? It is all so complicated. It can be overwhelming.
In this section, you will find information on all aspects of health. I believe strongly that all parts of who we are are interconnected and if we want to truly be healthy, it requires us to work on all aspects of what makes up our being. Emotional health will be addressed. The relationship between physical and emotional health is also something that will be explored. For example, issues like anxiety, depression, unresolved grief, and trauma can all affect physical health.
This will also be the page where mental health issues will be addressed; diagnoses like ADHD, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, and Autism, to name a few. I’d like to explore the age old nature versus nurture debate when it comes to these issues. For example, if we are genetically predisposed to a certain diagnosis, what determines if we end up with the diagnosis? Do issues like lifestyle, stress, and coping mechanisms factor in to if we end up with the diagnosis? If so, what can we do to lessen our chances of having a diagnosis? I hope you will find helpful information in this section. Please let me know if there’s a topic you’d like addressed. My goal is to discuss topics that effect us all and to help provide some clarity and tangible suggestions.Share on:
