Perhaps we all think we know what health and wellbeing means. Particularly our own.
According to Andreas Ivarsson, this may not be the case. He argues that, particularly in the current challenging times, it is essential to develop an enhanced understanding of ones’ own health and develop a strategy to ensure that we minimize the impact of external factors whilst maximizing our potential to enjoy an increased sense of wellbeing.
Dr. Ivarsson is an Associate Professor at Halmstad University in Sweden. He has contributed to over 50 publications in the field of psychology, sport exercise and health: particularly in the area of injury rehabilitation, performance, anxiety and mindfulness.
In this short piece for Dair Magazine he breaks down several ‘health’ misconceptions and provides a series of simple tools to help you discover, understand and enhance your mental wellbeing.
