'Green Zone Living' is based on a philosophy that inspires human beings, individually and collectively, to become fully human. Its aim is to decrease emotional suffering, raise social consciousness and make people's lives more meaningful. This easy-to-understand concept encourages people to become aware of their talents, actualize their potential and share their special gifts with their dear ones. In addition, it helps people to learn the skills needed to resolve their conflicts and become active participants in their personal growth. Countless individuals have reported that it has guided them, step by step, in creating happy families, healthy work environments and peaceful communities - communities that are part of creating a happy, healthy and peaceful Green Zone World. In the contemporary world, day-to-day life for most people has become so stressful that: one in four women and one in ten men suffer from depression, one marriage in three ends in divorce and the number of people going on sick leave and getting burnt out from toxic work environments is increasing. In such turbulent and traumatic social circumstances, a number of mental health professionals and philosophers worldwide have accepted the challenge to find creative ways to deal with life's dilemmas and dreams. Two such professionals are psychotherapists Dr. K. Sohail and Bette Davis. Based on their more than fifty years of psychotherapy experience with hundreds of individuals, couples and families, they have developed the concept of Green Zone Living. Green Zone Living is based on the Green Zone Philosophy that inspires people to create a healthy, happy and peaceful Green Zone Lifestyle. The Green Zone Philosophy has already helped a large number of people not only to deal with their emotional and relationship problems but also improve their quality of lives
