Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes

Having adventures in the magical beauty of Maui–hiking up Haleakala, diving off of a waterfall, enjoying a majestic sunset–all have therapeutic value. 

The more Dr. Ilardi looked at the commonalities of these mentally healthy societies, the more he was able to tease out certain common variables that he was then able to operationalize in his groundbreaking research dubbed the Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) Project. He took clinically depressed subjects and then incorporated several of these therapeutic lifestyle changes into their lives for several weeks.
The results? They experienced phenomenal outcomes: people who had suffered from mental health, anxiety, and depression for many years saw amazing–and measurable–improvements. Indeed, these improvements were statistically significant, not only when compared to control groups, but also when compared to people who had been treated only with depression medications. 
And what were these magical lifestyle changes?

  • Getting regular daily exercise
  • Getting plenty of natural sunlight
  • Getting ample sleep every night
  • Eating an Omega-3 rich diet
  • Being involved in some type of social activity where social connections were made
  • Participation in meaningful tasks that leave little time for negative thoughts

Outdoor Nature Immersion

Unplugging from our devices, developing a sense of healing community, physical exercise, immersing oneself in nature–those things alone can be more therapeutic than sitting in a therapist’s chair and venting about your life.

Nature immersion is an evidence-based intervention. Having adventures in the magical beauty of Maui–hiking up Haleakala, diving off of a waterfall, enjoying a majestic sunset–all have therapeutic value. Especially for people that have fallen into toxic and self-destructive and addictive habits.
