I agree that taking care of our overall well-being by adopting healthy lifestyle habits (e.g., balanced eating - this does not mean perfect eating) is a tool. That said, I do think that having this honest conversation can be useful. I concur that it's critical to emphasize that such tools are not going to be the cure for someone's RSI that began after a loved one died. However, I do believe it's useful for those of us who can more easily manage our mental health with such tools. The mind and the body do affect one another - and I am more empowered to balance my emotions when I generally sleep, eat, etc. well. It's easier for me to stay in parasympathetic mode when my physical well-being - in addition to my mental well-being - is addressed and balanced.
