The International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare has named Monica Ortiz one of the top 100 leaders globally for Healthcare in 2020. This honor recognizes the incredible work Monica has done to evolve the system of healthcare while helping hundreds of thousands of people from all around the globe, from Native American tribes to students, teachers, parents, athletes, executives, front-line workers, and first responders.
"When most people think of healthcare, they think of doctor's offices and hospitals because they think healthcare is about current health problems," says Monica. "True healthcare is the exact opposite though - it's about being happy in your life, minimizing stress, and learning how to handle it, so you don't end up developing all those illnesses that are caused by stress. It's about creating fulfilling relationships and having a career you take joy in, with goals you go after and feel good about. My work helps people build their understanding and strengthen their own personal healthcare system. And when your citizens have a system like that, it's a complete game-changer for a country's healthcare system because it decreases the amount of illnesses people are suffering, and people will do better overall."
As the founder of The Exceptional Life Institute and creator of the Masters of Mindfulness app, Monica has spent over 20 years researching the connections that mental, physical, and emotional health have with mindfulness, relationships, career, and happiness. She has created a system of tools and education that builds emotional and mental resiliency by developing self-awareness and offering better ways to process the stress, anxiety, and the daily challenges all people run into. Through her books, online courses, mindfulness app, and global community, people are able to address past and current problems, decrease stress, cultivate happiness, and ultimately improve their health outcomes.
