Could your home environment be contributing to you and your family's stress? It may be without you realizing it.
Did you know that, conversely, your home can be curated to encourage relaxation, joy, and healing--to optimize wellbeing?
Esther Sternberg, MD is Research Director and Chair at the Andrew Weil Center Integrative Medicine. She is also author of the books, Healing Spaces: The Science of Place and Well-being and The Balance Within: The Science Connecting Health and Emotions.
In this podcast, Dr. Sternberg explains what the science has discovered about how certain design elements of a physical space can affect our immune response, stress, relaxation, memories, and peace. She also shares the personal experiences that have led to the life-changing research she does today.
As you detox your home and lifestyle, listen to this fascinating and empowering conversation for inspirations on the simple ways you can reconstruct your routines and space with positive, healing triggers that Dr. Sternberg and I discuss. These positive, healing triggers can be included in your home design, routines, rituals, aromatherapy, art, music, and meditation.
