Choosing Wellness is a series of deeply personal essays on how Eileen and others eventually came to a moment of truth in their lives. The stories are specific but the meaning and the message applies universally. Choosing Wellness speaks directly to our high-stress, self-neglect, fast-food society. Health care systems do not—and cannot –prevent us from slowly killing ourselves. Only when we intentionally move toward wellness, one choice at a time, can we increase our healthspan and our lifespan.
