Eco Minded: Exploring the Ecological Perspective of Preventative Mental Wellness
Join Amanda Oppel, MEd, LMT and the College of Nursing and Public Health to explore mental disharmony and increase overall wellness.
Our brain and body are intricately linked. We have thoughts, that produce emotions, that generate physiological responses. Therefore, how and what we think and feel are strong indicators of our overall health status.
Mental health does not operate on its own, however. The Holistic and Ecological Models show that our mental health is affected by our built and social environment, career and financial position, intellectual stimulus, how we move and rest, what we eat, and our spiritual evolution.
During this workshop, we will review these processes and you will be shown examples of how this plays into our dynamic well-being. You will learn small simple practices that, when cumulated, act as prevention tools to mental disharmony and increase our overall wellness.
