The world is suffering from a mental wellness crisis: Roughly one billion people suffer from anxiety, and one in four people experience mental disorders. To answer the need for more evidence-based pathways to mental wellbeing, the GWI’s Mental Wellness Initiative will release a new, in-depth report, Mental Wellness: Pathways, Evidence and Horizons, in early October at the Global Wellness Summit in Italy.
It will present new directions in self-guided mental wellbeing, identifying the brain correlates of many of these pathways and the capacity of the brain, the body and the emotions to work together in a synchronized journey to optimal mental wellness and human fulfillment.

Looking forward to the GWI report. Already a crisis for baby boomers all around the world and happening at an earlier age.
Apart from Blue Zones who else is making meaningful research into treating dementia and alzheimers prevention.

Excellent! The proactive approach towards metal wellness is truly important!
One of the most interesting scientific papers around proactive approach is by Dr Helena Lass. Her scientific paper is entitled “Developing Intra-Personal Skills as a Proactive Way to Personal Sustainability – The Preventative Side of the Mental Health Equation” (published in in the book “Personal Sustainability. Exploring the Far Side of Sustainable Development” by Routledge 2018). This scientific paper brings forward a compelling argument for a proactive approach to mental health. Within this article, Dr Lass outlines a new proactive approach to mental health as something that everyone should actively strive towards. The scientific paper shifts the focus from the external reactive problem solving approaches towards a more proactive education on the mental wellness, whereby people who are still well can learn new skills to prevent further escalation of negative states into illness.

Also there is very interesting study by Deloitte that show that ROI of proactive company wide approach to mental wellness is much better than the reactive approach to mental health.

I hope this will include the published evidence on floatation by Dr JustinFeinstein, Laureate Institue for Brain Research, Tulsa. The papers show how all the clinically anxious subjects responded well to just one float session and separately how the Amygdala relaxes during floating.
We are what we put in….most of the time its our environment responsible for what we become in due course of time. Or if we are intelligent, we can choose our surroundings but if we are wise we can select our responses or reactions to the outer world. So need to check which category do we fall in. One thing for sure is we need a change in this fast moving directionless chase towards nothing. Lets commit to help our kids not to fall in these traps and protect their delicate minds.
