Creating a lifestyle change involves more than working out with a trainer a few times a week, it takes a serious understanding of yourself and how your cumulative life experiences have forced you to feel trapped in a life you don’t love; often leading to the acting out of un-healthy patterns and believing that you’ve peaked, believing that your life is the best it’s ever going to get. So, what is marriage and family therapy? And how can it enhance your fitness and increase your overall health and wellness?
Marriage and family therapy is a style of psychotherapy that works with individuals, couples, and families to nurture change and development. This method of therapy views change in terms of the systems of interactions between people and family members, friends, culture, society, and the world; also focusing on how elements of trauma, mental illness, general and medical conditions, personality, career, academics, government, racial identity, gender, and sexual orientation influence wellbeing and thus, effect a person’s lifestyle. Regardless of whether or not you consider your unfit lifestyle to be an individual or family issue, involving your family in the solution is often beneficial. This involvement is commonly accomplished by the exploration of intergenerational family patterns, family or origin issues, family roles, rules, and boundaries; or through your family’s direct participation in the therapy session.
