The 21st century is becoming an increasingly bizarre time, when a significant portion of humanity seems to be conducting a massive, unprecedented, world-wide lifestyle experiment. As Roger discusses in this video, people are spending more and more time indoors in artificial, nature free environments, with low-level artificial lighting. We are eating high calorie and nutrient-poor diets, and tend to get very little exercise compared to previous generations. We are completely and totally immersed in the online multimedia world, and exist as parts of huge, largely impersonal, often anonymous communities like Facebook, Reddit, or Twitter.
In other words, today’s human beings are living very differently than their ancestors—and truth be told, we are only beginning to understand the impact this is having upon us. While there are certainly numerous benefits to our hyper-modernized world, it is clear that there are some detrimental effects as well—depression, anxiety, illness, etc. In this video, Roger describes eight of the most crucial lifestyle-based approaches to help restore balance and sanity to our frantic 21st-century lives.
Dr. Roger Walsh’s groundbreaking article “Lifestyle and Mental Health” was published by the prestigious and highly-influential academic journal American Psychologist. In the article, Roger explores the power of simple “therapeutic lifestyle changes” (or TLC’s) to significantly improve our overall mental health and happiness, offering a simple but comprehensive overview that could potentially transform the entire field of medicine and healthcare.
