Achieving a Healthy Body
As I’ve gone through my own personal journey, I found these core beliefs to be an essential part of healing and becoming the best version of myself: Body, Mind and Spirit. And that these beliefs are what makes a person whole and able to overcome their obstacles. Whether it be losing weight, having confidence or loving yourself. I myself have gone through this journey and have guided others through theirs.
Your mind is the window to your body and soul, so make sure it receives proper nourishment. Your brain is such a powerful force. It can enslave you or empower you. It controls how your body functions. Stress can have a negative affect on your mental health. How can you boost your mental wellness for a healthier YOU? Get at least 8 hours of sleep. You are more alert and less prone to stress. Eat healthy. Good nutrition is a natural defense against stress. Keep active. I can’t stress this enough. Exercising at lest 30 minutes a day helps keep you physically strong and reduces stress. Interact with others. Talking to people stimulates the brain. Pick up a new skill or hobby. Learning to play a musical instrument or learning to cook a new dish, keeps your brain active and healthy. Laugh! Laughter is the best medicine. Humor helps activate the brain’s reward and pleasure center which generates emotions and relaxes the mind.
Your body is a temple. In order for your body to heal, you need to love and take better care of it. Nourishing your body with healthy foods, speaking to your body with love and taking time out to disconnect in every day life stress, enables your body to heal and THRIVE.
The spiritual element is the most personal piece of the puzzle when achieving wellness. Generally, people like to live a life of meaning and purpose. When these goals are met, it puts harmony in one’s life. How can you improve your spiritual wellness? Explore who you are by asking yourself questions like Who am I? What is my purpose? Look for deeper meanings. Get it out. By writing down your thoughts, you may be able to think clearer and move forward. Try yoga. Yoga is a spiritual technique that can help improve your spiritual wellness by reducing emotional and physical stress on your body. Travel. Taking time for yourself can do wonders for your mind! Think positively. You can refocus your mind to a happy, healthy place when you start viewing things in your life in a positive manner. Meditate. Fitting meditation and relaxation in your life will free your mind and create a stronger relationship with your spiritual wellness.
