What is the Fun™ Program?
The Fun&trade Program is a self-directed and designed healing program. It offers a mindbody perspective on health and well-being that reverses commonly held ideas and beliefs about physical illness, emotional imbalances and addictive behavior. It asks individuals to regard life’s difficulties as challenges; and to see problems as opportunities for learning.
To do this, the approach consists of three steps; three movements to a new life: Focus: Stop and identify the beliefs that are limiting you; Undo: Take responsibility and shift patterns of thought and behavior that you yourself are creating; Now Act: Transform those situations that limit your freedom and restrict your growth; do something different, create new habits for living.
