I truly believe in the strong interconnection between mental health and physical health. Not only does scientific research show that the two are inextricably intertwined, but my lived experiences have proved this to be so.At age 22, my depression and chronic stress skyrocketed to debilitating levels. Because I’d neglected my mental health, this triggered a rare autoimmune illness that landed me temporarily paralyzed in the hospital, and in physical therapy for months.Today, I love to share this hard but important lesson with others, in both mental health articles and my personal life. We have to take an integrative approach to wellness; our minds, bodies, and lifestyles are each a piece of the larger puzzle that is our wellbeing.
