Stutz’s Life Force
I created the wellness stack in early 2022 as a way to help people. I started with three essential topics: sleep, nutrition, and mind/self (followed by others, but these three are huge). One year later, I found Phil Stutz in a documentary, sharing the same. It is validating to discover someone emphasizing these ideas – I was happy to find him.
No matter what you’re feeling – lost, depressed, frustrated, stuck, purposeless… whatever – start here. Reset. You cannot perform or solve any problem with a blurry foundation. Meet Phil Stutz, a veteran therapist of many decades, describing this in under 3 minutes:
Life Force – Introduction
Below, Stutz offers three things proven to make a major difference in your life when you’re lost. Rather than trying to solve all your problems, focus on these first, and everything else falls into place.
Part 1 – Body
Your quality of mind is COMPLETELY at the mercy of your body. This has nothing to do with being attractive or appearing nice for other people. This is about how YOU feel every moment of your life. Sleep, nutrition, and exercise make an extraordinary difference. See more, here:
Part 2 – Relationships
Your connection to other people is important. It doesn’t necessarily mean being social all the time. It simply means treating people with respect and dignity, as often as you are able. Be present with others. Listening to them. Treating them as you want to be treated. Each person you interact with – and how you interact with them – represents your relationship with all of humanity.
Part 3 – Mind/Self
This is huge. Absolutely huge. I cannot emphasize this enough. You are more vast and complex, mysterious, creative, wise, and infinite than you can possibly ever know. And, the only way to can begin to appreciate this, is to get to know yourself. We assume we DO know ourselves – but until we open the door more intentionally to our unconscious side, such as with writing, or mindfulness, or expressing ourselves – we will never truly understand.

All Your Questions and Problems Will Resolve
Jonah: If I just do that pyramid, everything else will fall into place.
Stutz: It will. Everything else will fall into place
If you can focus on these fundamentals in your life, specifically deepening your relationship with yourself, every other problem and question and anxiety will resolve itself.
