I write a lot about spiritual things in this blog, but mostly because I understand the profound impact your spiritual understanding has on your mind and overall state of well-being.
Would you like to stroll on the subjective side of this topic for a few minutes with me while I offer a potential solution to your mental unrest?
Journey into a realm where rest and ease can calm your troubled mind…
Being healthy and well (or what most people call ‘wellness’) is not only how one feels physically in their body, but includes the state of one’s mind, or mental health. Mind-body, or holistic health includes things that help us relax (mind and body), release pent up tension, laugh, restore ease, increase our feeling of worthiness and belonging, improve our physical flexibility and stamina, and bring balance back to the body.
Your head is attached to your body, and IF your head is where your mind is (as most believe), your mental state can influence how our body feels. How can traditional western medicine (allopathic medicine) only treat your head, without understanding its relationship to the body? It seems to me, and to many others whom I converse with on the subject, that we need to take time for ourselves and learn ways to ease our mind, beyond the escape of merely sleeping away our concerns.
Conversely, perhaps mania and depression are triggered by inflammation in the body? Or by environmental factors? Side effects from other medicines, substance abuse, food, or alcohol?
If you’re feeling the need to:
- Get unstuck from the status quo
- Learn tips that you can utilize in your day-to-day life to ease your mind
- Rest and relax in a beautiful and tranquil environment
- Eat delicious and nutritious organic food
- Give yourself time and permission to reset your mental state
- Go from feeling “blah” to brilliant
