Your Healthiest Self: Wellness Toolkits

May 9, 2022 Joe Brady

Each person’s “healthiest self” is different. We have different bodies, minds, living situations, and people influencing our lives. Each area can impact your overall health. This means we each have a unique set of health needs. Use these wellness toolkits developed by the National Institutes of Health, to find ways to improve your well-being in any area you’d like.

Whole person health involves looking at the whole person—not just separate organs or body systems—and considering multiple factors that promote either health or disease. It means helping and empowering individuals, families, communities, and populations to improve their health in multiple interconnected biological, behavioral, social, and environmental areas. Instead of treating a specific disease, whole-person health focuses on restoring health, promoting resilience, and preventing diseases across the lifespan.

Your Healthiest Self: Wellness Toolkits offer science-based health tips in five different areas. Learn simple ways to prevent disease. Find tips to improve your relationships, emotional and physical well-being, and surroundings.
