Mind Body Health
It is important to realise that we ourselves and everything around us is made up of energy.
Backed by the latest scientific developments, we are starting to realise that everything is energetically connected, and that we can no longer isolate the different systems in our minds and bodies from one another. What is more, we can no longer isolate ourselves from one another, or from our environment. Whatever we think, say, feel or do affects not only ourselves, but everybody and everything around us.
Integrating body, emotions and mind is the key to being healthy and living a happy life.
It is not possible to separate physical, mental, emotional or spiritual health from each other. We can’t maintain our physical health if we are unwell on any other level. Our body, mind, emotions and spirit work together as an integrated system.
If we are unwell on any of these levels our system becomes unbalanced, leading to lack of energy and disease. Mind body health, therefore, is important for our wellbeing.
Healing ourselves holistically will address imbalances on all levels and facilitate the natural flow of energy throughout the body, without blockages or resistance.
Keeping fit and healthy is key to reducing stress and increasing your energy and happiness levels. According to the experts stress is the main cause of illness and weight problems. Stress management and a healthy body and mind routine helps to maintain your ideal weight.
Listen to your body
Many of us become so caught up by life’s daily pressures and stresses that we forget about our bodies, or we feel we don’t have the time to spend on taking care of our bodies. Neglecting our bodies can lead to serious problems in the long run.
It is important to stay in tune with your body and to take note of any signals that it is giving you, such as lack of energy, stress related symptoms, pains or aches. We don’t need to run to the doctor every time we feel out of sorts, but we can learn to listen and understand the underlying causes of any discomfort or disease. We can even learn how to heal ourselves!
If we take responsibility for the way we treat our bodies we can avoid having to rely on doctors and running up unnecessary medical bills. Prevention is easier than cure.
How to have a healthy body
Some people love physical exercise and sports, but those of us (like me!), who struggle with the thought of doing regular exercise, can find simple, quick and fun and varied ways to keep fit, e.g.
- Walking in nature
- Dancing and playing
It’s OK and human to pig out occasionally, but in general it is necessary to stick to a healthy diet if you want to stay energetic and healthy.
Detoxing your body regularly will help your body to function and and lose weight properly. You will feel lighter and more energetic. Drink plenty of water to help flush toxins and to keep your organs hydrated.
Getting enough sleep is necessary for the body to self-regulate and to repair.
Massage releases feel-good hormones in our body and helps to let go of stress.
The latest scientific research has found that walking barefoot or lying down on the earth can
help increase energy, fight disease and reduce stress hormones and inflammation.
A healthy mind
How to have a healthy mind
A positive attitude and mindset is key to raising your energy and releasing stress
Being positive and happy raises your energetic frequency.
Feelings like love, joy and peace vibrate at high, uplifting frequencies. Heavy emotions like fear, anger or shame vibrate at low frequencies.
Things we can do to uplift our energy frequency
Whatever brings you into a state of flow is perfect, e.g:
- Deep breathing exercises.
- Regular meditation practice.
- Communing with nature and animals.
- Always finding things to appreciate and to be grateful for.
- Being kind and loving to others.
- Being kind and loving to ourselves.
- Practicing and bringing in to our lives the uplifting qualities of peace, love, joy and compassion.
- Forgiving ourselves and others.
Things we can avoid bringing our energy frequencies down
- Stop overthinking things.
- Avoid judging, bitching, moaning and gossiping.
- Learn how to manage feelings like anger, hurt, guilt, sadness or depression.
- Clear emotional blocks and past traumas.
- Let go of the old negative beliefs, stories, habits, identities or concepts about yourself imposed on you through social conditioning.
- Come to terms with our shadow self (being the victim, controller, manipulator, etc).
How can we manage our energy pathways to finally achieve health and happiness?
By learning how to become more positive, by healing ourselves or finding the help to heal and get rid of the ‘baggage’ that is holding us back. That will release and balance our energy and set
us free to have happier relationships with ourselves and with others; and ultimately to live a happy, full and abundant life.
