Let The Body and Mind Sync for a Healthy Life

Let The Body and Mind Sync for a Healthy Life

There is an unexplainable, yet beautiful balance in everything that has ever come into existence. The best illustration? The human body and mind.

While years of research have proven how the physical wellness of a human being is dependent on the mental health of an individual there are aspects of this that many people overlook, and in the process, forgo the ability to live a healthy life.

According to a report published by the United Kingdom’s Faculty of Public Health, around 46% of the people who have a mental health problem are subjected to long term physical health issues which include severe heart diseases. The report also concluded that mental illnesses increase the probability of cancer, and that people with psychological dysfunctions and disorders die nearly 25 years earlier than the normal population.

Mood Swings and Exercising

If there’s something that can outshine the speed of light, it is the speed with which a human’s mood, and mind, changes! Ever thought how to fix this? A simple solution: Exercising.

As cliché as it might sound, scientists and doctors have proven that just a short run across the street can actually help to alleviate one’s mental stress, making you feel much better just in a matter of 10 minutes. So how does it really work?

The mind has to deal with stress sooner or later in life. How well one deals with it, however, varies from person to person. Physical exercises like cycling, running, or even walking let the mind relax. The primary focus of your mind, then, shifts to the physical activity rather than the anxiety and stress that occupies it otherwise.

Many researchers have said that psychologists had earlier overlooked the benefits of physical exercises in treating problems like depression. However, with the new dimensions in medical science, exercise is getting a lot of press to treat both short and long term depression.

How To Give Yourself That ‘Push’ To Exercise

It is no surprise that sometimes it is more than difficult to muster the determination to get out of your bed, wear those track pants and head for a run. One’s default behavior instead, is to watch TV and struggle with their stress. It is undoubtedly human to face such situations, but one must understand that this will only lead to further complications. It can result in a self-deprecating attitude, lower self-esteem and long term depression.

This is why giving oneself the push to get up, exercise, and experience the rush of endorphins is a must, furthering an individual’s positive and energizing outlook on life.

Bid Stress Farewell and Embrace a Positive Mind

Though you can always look up on the internet on ways to avoid stress (a plethora of tips from various sites and blogs will pop up!), it is easy to forget that the tips will only work if you are willing to keep a headstrong attitude and muster up the courage to try to lift yourself to a better place.

Basic tips to keep in mind:

  • Wake up with a positive attitude.
  • Take a second to appreciate life.
  • Challenge yourself to exercise and eat healthy.
  • Do things to positively affect others.
  • Don’t let stress get the best of you. Take a deep breath and move forward.
  • Maintain a healthy balance between work and play.
  • Don’t strain yourself. It is okay to take a break and cut yourself some slack.
  • Listen to what your body is telling you.
  • Never be afraid to ask for help
