Wellness Psychology

Is this glass of water half empty or half full? Wellness psychology would definitely indicate the latter.

Wellness psychology is the study of mental and emotional wellness - in other words, the way to create conditions of thinking and feeling that are consistent with healthy living.

Wellness psychology is a way of responding to the challenges of life with positive expectancy and self-esteem, based on the awareness that our natural state is harmony and inner peace, if we can reduce or eliminate whatever is interfering with that state.Wellness psychology is based more on lifestyle decisions than the treatment of a professional. Learning to interpret the events of your life with positive realism gives you a perspective from which you can assign uplifting meanings to those events. Tony Robbins says, "Nothing has any meaning but the meaning you give it," and putting a positive spin on things sets an internal environment that is more likely to encourage overall wellness.

But there's more to wellness psychology than just positive thinking. Rather than waiting around for mental and emotional symptoms, you can be proactive and develop habits that make you mentally and emotionally healthier on an ongoing basis.

  • "Surgery has been canceled and it looks like my lifestyle will improve quickly as I can become more active thanks to Dr Wood and the Dakota Ridge Chiropractic staff."

  • "Love love love Dr. Wood & staff. The care is fantastic, the people are wonderfully warm and welcoming, and they're always willing to fit you in no matter how crazy your personal schedule might be. Dr. Wood might possibly be one of the nicest guys I've ever met. I've been seeing him for years, despite having moved many miles away since first connecting with him. Simply wonderful!"
