This simplified assessment is based on the research-validated Profile of Mood States questionnaire, or POMS, that has been used in thousands of clinical studies for almost 2 decades. It is used to measure stress levels, mental wellness and biochemical balance (or imbalance) in research study subjects in a range of clinical trials.
In order to live a higher quality life, maintaining optimal wellness is key. Everything we feel and do relates to our well-being and directly affects our actions and emotions. In order to subdue stress, reduce illness, and ensure positive moments in your life, you must achieve optimal wellness.
You can apply a wellness approach towards your environment, community, career, belief systems, physical activities, self care, healthy eating, self esteem, and creative activities. Applying wellness in your everyday life will allow you to achieve your full potential and live with passion and purpose.
Targeting Mental Wellness Through
the Body’s Three Brains
Our three brains: gut (sensing brain), mind/brain (thinking brain) and heart (feeling brain) determine our emotions and are the most powerful tools in optimizing our overall mental wellness.
Think of your gut as the intuition and instinct resource. The head is the logical and analytical source. And finally, the heart as the emotional, passionate and artistic approach to your well-being. When in sync, these three brains balance your mental wellness.*
