BODY

MIND
Mindset also plays a big role in mental fitness. Cultivating a positive mindset isn’t about denying reality. It’s about noticing positive things, even in difficult situations, and imagining positive possible futures.

SPIRIT
The first “spirit” factor is a connection with nature. Studies show that people who live in a home surrounded by trees have better mental health outcomes than people who live in a home without greenery or easy access to it.
