This area often gets the least attention in medicine. It also often is neglected in the absence of profound disease. Many people will exercise their body routinely while ignoring preventative emotional wellbeing. There are many stressors in modern life and addressing stress prior to negative impact can be incredibly beneficial. Many people might think that talking to a therapist is unnecessary if there aren’t serious problems, but discussing emotions openly can improve your day-to-day quality of life and help avoid development of poor coping mechanisms and needless distress.

If life is so ordered that formal therapy isn’t needed, patients could certainly benefit from mindfulness meditation or yoga as a complement to their exercise routine.

Sleep falls under emotional wellbeing as a rested mind is essential to perform at optimal levels mentally. All patients will be evaluated for baseline sleep disorders, and I recommend basic sleep hygiene for all. I feel that many could benefit from more concrete metrics to assess the quality of their sleep and typically recommend wearables or mattress-based peripherals.
