The body and mind connection means that we use our thoughts to influence and improve our body’s physical condition. When we are under stress, it influences body negatively. Conversely, you improve your mental condition to improve your physical condition. Improving the mind and body connection helps to improve the health.
To improve our health we need to change the life style that helps to reduce the stress and to strengthen the body and improve emotional state of mind. This helps to heal the body and improve health. To change the way how our body feels, first we need to bring a change in mind- to be strong and in harmony.
Remember -health is also a state of harmony between mind, body and soul. Whenever there is a problem or sadness, the consciousness makes body and mind intractable. The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter and spirit heals with joy. To win over unhappiness one has to make mind run the body. Never let the body to tell the mind what it has to do. The reason is body gives up easily, makes mind drain, and we end up stressed out.
If the happy mind directs the body then body feels energetic and does not feel tired. This is because the body achieves what mind believes. Optimum health requires the mind, physical body and inner spirit to be in balance. Always beware that an unhealthy mind, even in a healthy body finally results in unhealthy condition. Most of us do not know how good our body is designed to feel. This feeling has to arise from our mind.
There are many ways to heal our body and mind. Try these steps:
- Scan your body while closing the eyes.
- Close your eyes and take a deep breath.
- Be aware of any sensations that your mind is going through – happy or unhappy
- Notice where any unhappiness sensation is coming from
- Let your awareness travel through the body
- Follow the sensation until the unhappiness disappears
- Breath is the link between body and mind. While you breathing in, bring focus on your mind, let only the breathing be you and while breathing out, bring a smile on your face. This helps to calm the mind and energize the body.
The secret of health for both body and mind is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly – Buddha
Live from inside out. Nourish your mind and body with happiness. When the mind achieves harmony, it will heal the body. Dwelling in the present moment should be the only moment. Living in present and in the moment helps to balance the mind and body both. As they say, “take care of you body that is the only place you live” To take care of body, do not forget to take care of your mind.
