We throw around terms like optimal wellness, holistic and integrative care, wholeness of body, mind and spirit and human optimization, but what does comprehensive wellness really entail? It is now well-established in the scientific community that mental health, relationship health and physical health are linked in important ways. It is difficult to optimize our bodies and fitness if depression is eating away at our brain cells.
It is hard to optimize our minds if our relationship stress is producing anxiety on a daily basis. And our relationships depend in significant ways on our individual physical and mental health. Comprehensive wellness, therefore, means that we respect and pursue the complete integration of health and optimization: healthy mind, healthy body and healthy relationships.
