The Psychology of Wellness
Wellness is more than doing the right things. Complete wellness encompasses all dimensions in our lives—this includes emotional wellness. We can do the right things and still suffer with debilitating anxiety or depression. Science continues to discover deep connections between our physical well-being, feelings and thoughts. Each of these aspects contribute to our overall wellness.
When our lives feel out of whack, we must not only examine single causes.
Wellness requires contentment in the present moment. A peaceful feeling resonating throughout our body.
A vast field of research examines countless theories. As lay investigators, hoping to just feel well, we can only grasp a few of the topics. We don't need to know it all.
As we expand our knowledge and practices, we grow. We experience flourishing. We move from simple existence to the fullness of life. A well-rounded approach lifts us above the pettiness and we transcend our current state of being.
At FLS we have spent thousands of hours exploring theories of wellness, writing hundreds of articles. Here is a sampling.
