A healthy mind breeds a health body and vise versa!
A healthy lifestyle can have a great impact on a person’s life! The human body and mind interact in an impressive way that works reciprocally.
The result of this interaction affects a human’s well-being greatly. Nowadays, many people are aware that their emotions may have a massive impact on their physical health. However, very few are aware that their physical condition also has a very powerful impact on their mental health and emotions.
This article will be going through a number of things one can do to improve their mental well-being by mainly taking care of their body.
Firstly, it is of utmost importance that we accept the fact that there is a strong psychological link between the body and brain. This way we will understand the importance of taking care of our body and ultimately feeling better both mentally and physically.
Nowadays, due to such hectic lives, many of us deal with a number of emotional states from time to time. This results into changes in our psychological well-being, both positively and negatively. These negative emotional states such as stress, anxiety, depression and so on are ones we try to fight through in various ways.
However, did you know that one of the most effective ways to do this is by controlling your body in effective ways?
The first and most important is to exercise, exercise and exercise! Many people tend to underestimate the effectiveness of exercise and sport on mental health. However, in reality it is emphasized by many that physical activity alleviates symptoms that are associated with negative emotions. Yoga, for example, is known to heal the soul and that is a journey of the self, through the self and to the self.
Ashley Turner, a yoga teacher and licensed psychotherapist states –
“Yoga is a psychology – the whole practice helps us work with the nature of the mind, the nature of being a human, how emotions live in our bodies, how they affect our behavior and our minds.”
FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE – HEALTHY EATING, AVOIDING BAD HABITS AND POSITIVE THINKING
We must make sure to eat nutritious healthy meals. Drink a sufficient amount of water daily, get the advised 7 hours of sleep every night, and avoid cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. This guarantees more of a healthy lifestyle in general. Also, giving your brain and thinking box a break is proved to be very effective to improve the mental well-being overall.
Therefore, make sure to give your brain time to relax or just think of new, creative ideas that will create positive vibes.
Capture Models highly recommends this emerging phenomenon called Mindfulness.
This involves observing everything around us without filtering anything by our thoughts – Be the master of your body!
For instance, focus on your breath whilst having your eyes closed, rather than constantly thinking about your daily activities. So just listen to your body at least once a day.
If you do consider putting these into practice, I believe that your mind and body will be in sync and result into a healthier mind, body and lifestyle.
Nowadays, people spend way too much money on artificial things to live just one day longer. So why not just treat your body well and take precaution to live healthier?
