I have heard many patients say, ” I want to be healthy, I want to feel well.” I believe that they are looking for strategies to optimize their health and well- being, especially in the face of illness. The fundamental strategy consists of taking care of the body, mind, and spirit. These are aspects of each individual that comprises the experience of life.
Think about it- what are your life experiences and can you see each aspect mentioned above as being some part of it? Joy, happiness, sadness, anger are not just mental experiences, each has a internal feeling to it. Joy and happiness can bring a feeling of calm and relaxation, while sadness and anger can bring a feeling of stress.
Surprisingly, the body responds physically to feelings. We have the ability to form chemicals which communicate with our brain and other organs and they likewise respond. People tend to have more negative body responses that positive ones. For example, headaches and stomach pains are typical responses to negative feelings (stress).
Your mind and body go together as one. Instead of treating them separately, the programs at LifeBalance helps you to improve both your mental and physical health harmoniously.
When looking to be healthy and feel well, I encourage you to consider all the aspects – body, mind, and spirit. Be open to doing something different, especially, if what you are doing now is not getting you where you want to be.
Perhaps you can find some guidance in one of the blogs or look into one of our personalized programs that focus on a particular health journey that you have been looking for.
