What is sustainable well-being?

Sustainable well-being refers to a state that allows us to face life’s challenges in the 21st century. We have all had experiences where we have taken classes, felt good for a little while, only to witness the same problems return again. We need to learn how to make fundamental changes in our outlook, behavior, and lifestyle in order to break this cycle. To do this, we need to affect the whole being: body, thoughts, and psyche.

 

How can we live a good life?

 

On the surface, staying healthy seems relatively simple: eat right, exercise, don’t smoke or do drugs, drink moderately, think positively, and get regular check-ups. However, the reality is much more complex because our physical, mental, and spiritual health are deeply interconnected, and are linked with the health of society and the ecology of the planet.

 
 

We must address our mind and body simultaneously if we want to live well.

 

Our state of mind influences our body, and our body influences our mind. Think about how difficult it can be to have a good perspective on life when you are sick or tired. If we want to have sustainable well-being, we need to address the whole person at once; this is what Anthropedia’s integrative approach is all about.

 
 

Our bodies and minds haven't completely adapted to the 21st century.

 

Faced with a rapidly changing world, our bodies and minds are stressed in ways they have never been before. We are like Neanderthals who have just turned up in a supermarket. These problems are making us sick in surprising ways. Doctors and scientists call them lifestyle- and stress-related illnesses.
