Mind and Body Connection and self-awareness

Call 800.292.2440 for more information

Health, wellness and long-term weight loss requires self-awareness and a connection between your mind and body. The open and supportive community here at Hilton Head Health helps nurture self-awareness, and mind and body connection through self-reflection, and group forums on topics such as body image, life transitions and self-discovery. Facilitated by our Health Specialists, these group discussions create an environment of support from other Guests while exploring methods of change for successful diet, weight loss and wellness. Whether through a series of self-revelations during discussion, a connection with another Guest, or an insightful moment while walking on the beach, you will have the opportunity to establish a mind and body connection, and evaluate what truly matters in your life.  

Discussion topics designed to facilitate self-awareness and overall well-being include: 

  • Stress Management
  • Understanding the effects of self-defeating thoughts and behaviors
  • Identifying obstacles to overcome binge, compulsive and emotional eating
Along with participating in group discussions and self-reflection, you will receive a 45-minute consultation with an H3 Health Specialist to review your current health status and habits, as well as establish realistic health goals.
