De-Stress Your Environment and Your Life!

In this lecture, Drs. Sternberg and Crocker discuss a framework for embedding whole person/integrative health into the built environment, starting with a conversation about how each began to work in the area of integrative health and the built environment. Audience members learn about the importance of lifestyle in health and wellbeing, and the 7 "core areas" of integrative health. They give examples of each of the 7 core areas and will discuss how the built environment can be designed to foster and support each domain. Both experts touch on the importance of integrative health and designing the built environment to support optimal health and resilience post-COVID. Finally, Drs. Sternberg and Crocker share their views on where the field is going in the future and some practical take-home messages to help audience members incorporate these principles into their everyday lives to optimize their health and wellbeing.
