What if, instead of taking a reductionist stance, creating minimal programs with minimal effect, we mirrored the complexity of human wellness in our efforts? What if we addressed the physical and the mental with equal and adequate attention? What if we did more?
We’re targeting the wrong people, attempting to create accountability where none could take root, and failing to translate momentary successes into life-long habits. It’s not necessarily our fault. We did the logical things. But we’ve failed. Miserably.
