I had never looked much into the whole “Mind, Body, Spirit” attitude/philosophy. And I should say that I still have not. However, I encountered a long and existentially bruising period of unemployment after wrapping up my PhD. One unemployed morning found me journaling. The words came from my pen: “I don’t think my mind, body, or spirit are healthy”.
It was an odd position for me. I, in general, am a pretty positive and happy person. But in that moment I was not. Identifying that I was not made for the best stepping stone.
