Course Details

The National Wellness Institute defines wellness as a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential.” In this part 1 of a 2-part module, wellness is understood as a process of mind-body choices we then experience as physical, mental, and emotional well-being and health. Identifying the basic brain structures and their functions, we consider the stress response, how you experience it, and the use of breathing, or the choice to breathe well, to modify/recover during the stress response. As a preview, breathing is also a foundational for the practices we will explore in Mind-Body 2 (the practices of mindfulness, self-compassion and relationships or connection). We then explore the “body” practices of sleeping, moving (exercise), and eating (diet) as the building blocks to mind-body well-being. You are encouraged to identify action steps for your own mind-body wellbeing.
