Use Minimalism To Relieve Anxiety

Why Less Is More:

minimalism & anxiety

Anxiety, like other mental health conditions, is often difficult to treat. Too often, medical professionals offer their patients only heavy pharmaceuticals with worrisome side effects. This often leads down a path of trying different medicines at different levels of potency, which can be both expensive and mentally draining for the patient, possibly worsening their mental health in the process.

Anxiety is very common and has an enormous impact on outcomes of treatment for other conditions. For example, the orthopedic surgery literature is full of studies that demonstrate that a patient’s anxiety levels have more impact on outcomes than the technique of surgery or how well the bone healed on radiographs.

At Well Theory, we advocate for natural, lifestyle-based changes to improve your overall well being – mentally, physically, spiritually, and otherwise. If you are feeling anxious or stressed, keep reading to learn how to make a few changes that can help you improve your outlook on life and therefore your wellness.

What Is Minimalism?

and how it helps

In recent years, the practices of minimalism and mindfulness have begun to hit the mainstream. Professional organizer and declutterer Marie Kondo’s meteoric rise to fame is evidence that there are a lot of people in our society who are seeking to live with more intention – casting off excess objects and burdens to accomplish that.

Minimalism is a mindfulness practice that focuses on reducing the number of items you own and choosing to not buy things you no longer need. This can help your mental health in a variety of ways. For one, after decluttering, you can enjoy a more open, peaceful space. You’ll no longer feel cramped in your own living space, and can have more room to spread out – maybe enough space to roll out a yoga mat and invest in a mindfulness practice.

Minimalism doesn’t end there, however - if you were a shopper by habit, you need to set new habits. Ask yourself before purchasing something nonessential if you need it right now, or if you can wait a week or two and revisit the decision. This will help you reduce impulse purchases, and will help you keep your new, clutter-free home neat and open. When you reduce unnecessary spending, you’ll also save more money - put your savings towards a spa day or a vacation you’ve wanted to go on for years.

If you continue having difficulty, think of the cost of the item in terms of how many hours you spent working for it. Is that new TV really worth two month’s worth of work? This will help you assess the things in your life that truly have value.

Start With Small Steps

and build from there

As tempting as it may be to start throwing all of your unwanted clothes and trinkets into trash bags, instead opt for more sustainable, smaller steps. Choose one room to declutter – like the bathroom. Throw away expired toiletries. Donate old nail polish you don’t use anymore. Give the room a deep clean and have a look at the empty, clutter-free vanity. Do you feel less anxious?

Move on to another room, or choose to declutter any one type of thing next – such as clothes, books you won’t read, or your DVD collection. Have too many unread emails? 

Spend an hour or two deleting and unsubscribing to mailing lists. Only keep the ones that truly add value to your life.

At the end of the day, as you begin to apply more intention into the choices you make – from where you shop, what you buy, and how you curate your living space with only the things you need and a few sentimental objects that bring you joy – you may feel your anxiety begin to melt away. Simplicity might just bring the clarity of focus that you have needed to overcome some of your anxiety.

“My goal is to help people age better, age fitter, and enjoy their old age. We’re all going to get old. You can’t stop that

Meredith Warner, MD

Each ingredient in our multi is beneficial and necessary on their own – but together, they make a fantastic impact on your overall health and Bones and joints as they are carefully paired for maximum, and efficient, absorption – including the appropriate dosing of each. 

Instead of going to the store and potentially spending hundreds on large quantities of different vitamins and minerals, you now have a surgeon-curated option available in a single, convenient bottle

Our formulation supports bone, ligament, tendon, and skin health along with a foundation for wound healing. 
Additionally, it has the added benefit of Full Spectrum Hemp cannabidiol to support a healthy response to inflammation via your endocannabinoid system. 

Dr. Warner wanted the perfect multivitamin that would support tissue healing, wound healing, skin, which is integral to wound healing, and then bone and muscle growth – so she could confidently recommend it to her patients and the world. 

What Is IN the multivitamin?

carefully selected ingredients made for you

Each ingredient in our multi is the blend of essential vitamins + minerals Dr. Warner handpicks for her patients – especially those who are considering surgery. 

Full Spectrum Hemp Powder

Full Spectrum Hemp Powder is hemp with beneficial terpenes and cannabinoids. It’s included for its ability to support a healthy response to inflammation and provide you with antioxidants needed to support your overall health.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C boosts the function of the immune system to protect against illness and improves the body’s ability to repair damaged tissue - vital for wound healing & mandatory for collagen formation.

Calcium Citrate

Calcium Citrate is useful in balancing blood calcium levels to promote stronger, healthier bones and prevent the development of conditions such as osteoporosis.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 aids in the body’s ability to absorb calcium to promote bone health and the prevention of bone disorders. It's important to almost every human system.

Magnesium Oxide

Magnesium Oxide regulates magnesium levels to reduce muscle cramps and bone pain. It is also effective for lowering blood pressure, relieving anxiety and depression, and improving sleep quality. This is essential for nerve & muscle function.

Zinc Gluconate

Zinc Gluconate is a mineral that helps to balance zinc levels within the body as well as to promote the healthy growth and development of body tissues. It plays a large role in wound healing & connective tissue development.

Most multivitamins are filled with vitamins you don’t need, in amounts that are unnecessary, or even in ratios that cancel each other out. At Well Theory, we believe that less is more. Dr. Warner made sure to include only the essential nutrients that she recommends for her orthopedic patients, to provide targeted benefits for your musculoskeletal health.

This unique blend is ideal for surgical patients, but a great option for optimizing your overall health. Surgical candidates are often advised to make lifestyle changes so they’re at peak health before and after their procedures – and this multi is designed to do just that.

Why Choose well theory?

natural ingredients. powerful results.

At Well Theory, we are dedicated to providing you with a way to improve your overall health and reduce your pain – safely and naturally.  We believe in helping you build a better lifestyle, holistically and with the guidance of an orthopedic surgeon’s expertise.

In her years of clinical practice, Dr. Warner has often found that in many cases, natural alternatives to heavy pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures can be just as successful or more successful. 

As an orthopedic surgeon, she has to consider the context of the condition she’s treating – how it affects other parts of the musculoskeletal system, and how the treatment will change her patient’s lifestyle. This is why she prefers gentle therapies whenever they can be utilized, because while in many cases they are as effective as mainstream medicine, their impact on the body tends to be less jarring.

With this in mind, Dr. Warner founded Well Theory – and developed our revolutionary new Bone and Joint Multivitamin.
