Lifestyle Medicine mirrors Grandmother's wisdom in its simplicity: Get a good night's rest, eat your veggies, go out and play, and make friends. Studies have proven that these pillars are foundational to good health and, in fact, the best way to fight back against many chronic conditions.
Lifestyle medicine acknowledges the best of conventional medicine and its successes while highlighting kitchen wisdom and everyday healing. Here food is medicine, and abundant movement builds strength. Restorative sleep heals, and social connections support your emotional health. Managing stress and avoiding toxins are part of your everyday healing prescription. It's all connected and it starts with you.
In today's confusing world filled with opposing nutritional advice and gimmicks, it feels good to return back to the basics. Simple, right? But not so easy.
Cultivating a healthy lifestyle requires taking a good look at your everyday habits and finding the resources and motivation to make change. This includes carving out the space and time to make it happen. Establishing simple practices that support your health, energy, and creativity requires thoughtfulness --and a plan of action.
Good health requires self-remembering. It requires mindful awareness of self, relationships, and environment to re-establish healthy habits. Having an intentional plan that helps you align your deepest intentions with the world around you helps you live your life to the fullest.
