237: The Value of Approaching Health As a Generalist

There are a lot of things that contribute to the “health” of a human. And, yet, we are often sold measures for improving our health that isolate parts of our humanness.

If you want to lose weight, focus on physical health.
If you have depression or anxiety, focus on mental health.
If you are struggling in your relationships, focus on that.

But can you achieve a deep state of health by separating the dimensions of health in this way? I would argue no.

Treating 1 dimension of health in isolation is like strengthening 1 body part to try and improve the conditioning of the entire body.

When aspiring to improve your health, I am a huge proponent of approaching the work as a generalist rather than as a specialist.

Curious to hear more. Check out this episode.
