Letting go with psychologically-trigered toughts can make you healthier


If you’re reading this, you probably want to feel better, move more, and be free from pain and illness. Well, you’re not alone – we spend billions of dollars per year on products to help us do so. We are, in essence, a self-improvement nation.

But most of us aren’t living a life of optimal health. After all, roughly 50% of Americans have at least one chronic disease, 71% are overweight or obese, and “extreme stress” is on the rise. And that doesn’t even cover the myriad of other issues that influence our health, from depression to eating disorders to self-sabotaging beliefs and relationship problems.

It’s not for lack of trying that we’ve gotten here. Gyms, yoga studios, coaches, nutritional and health programs and apps continue to expand and blanket every corner of the Internet and our communities. Health professionals, trainers, and writers spend countless hours educating, advising, discussing and making optimal health enticing and fun (when possible)
