Everything in your life is connected. Your thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs about who you are—and your place in the world—all come together to form a whole picture. Holistic wellness counseling takes all of these aspects—mind, body, and spirit—into account, supporting you in designing a lifestyle that not only works for you but brings you to your best self.

Lifestyle Design

Holistic WellnessIt’s easy to think of your life as being in compartments, and that can be particularly true when it comes to self-care. In the past, you may have come to the table thinking, “Oh, I need to get in shape”, and so you go to the gym or run or do yoga. What you may not consider is that what you’re fueling your body with has a big influence on your “getting in shape.” Being aware of this connection doesn’t just mean going on a diet because diets rarely work in the long term. In terms of holistic wellness, it means thinking about what you eat in relation to the activities you’re engaging in, or the goals you’ve set for yourself.

Holistic nutrition counseling, as part of an overall personal wellness program, can help you:

  • Design a lifestyle that supports you in the long term
  • Develop a holistic nutrition plan
  • Address emotional eating
  • Integrate all aspects of your life experience into healthier eating
  • Create an overall vision for your life, supporting you as a whole person


Another aspect of holistic wellness that goes along with lifestyle design and holistic nutrition is mindset. You might think of this as the mental fitness that goes along with your physical and nutritional fitness. The way you think about yourself—your story, or personal narrative—informs the choices you make and the things you do. If your narrative strays toward the negative or gets away from you under stress, it can impact everything from your sleep to your job performance.

Having the support of an experienced counselor can:

  • Make the difference between having your life in parts and having one that is whole and balanced
  • Help you sort through how your thinking impacts all aspects of your overall health
  • Gain a clearer understanding of yourself
  • Help you make better choices, supporting a whole and balanced life experience


Clearer understanding of yourself comes, in part, from simply paying attention. One particular kind of paying attention is called mindfulness.It can be an effective tool for keeping you on track when it comes to your overall wellness plan.

Practicing mindfulness means:

  • Learning to notice your thoughts, feelings, and sensations in the present moment, without judgmentHolistic Wellness1
  • Self-examination to help you let go of the obstacles to your overall wellness
  • Connection to gentle self-acceptance
  • Seeing that your thoughts and feeling are neither right nor wrong
  • Recognizing your thoughts and feelings do not define you, and can change
