A mind at peace gives life to the body

A mind at peace gives life to the body

roundcubeSome once asked, so how exactly does the mind affect the body?

Do you know that every action of the mind produces a certain effect on the body? Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act.

Science is beginning to confirm what certain wise men have said at different times in history. Our famous King David in the Holy Book said ‘being cheerful keeps you healthy…it is slow death to be gloomy all the time’.

Your mind and mental state can have a profound effect on your physical body your spiritual experience and overall quality of life. The mind, the body, and the spirit are interconnected and inseparable. When one is affected, the other two suffer.

We can live a healthy lifestyle and perform our spiritual duties, but if the mind is not healthy the other two cannot make up for the lack, and therefore, we cannot be said to be truly and holistically healthy.

Doctors say 70% of illnesses begin in the mind. Many health problems do not entirely clear up unless the mental aspect is also addressed.

You may not have any of these diseases, yet be assured that negative thoughts and emotions have their toll. There are physiological reasons why the body reacts so dramatically to our thoughts and emotions.

Every part of our being, including our cells, sympathizes or responds to the positive and negative states of our minds.

Watch out for these signs

  • Back pain
  • Change in appetite
  • Chest pain
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Dry mouth
  • Extreme tiredness
  • General aches and pains
  • Headaches
  • High blood pressure
  • Insomnia (trouble sleeping)
  • Lightheadedness
  • Palpitations (the feeling that your heart is racing)
  • Sexual problems
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stiff neck
  • Sweating
  • Upset stomach
  • Weight gain or loss

Poor emotional health can weaken your body’s immune system. Also, when you feel stressed, anxious or upset you make not take care of your health as well as you should.

Our challenge for today is to write out 3 physical signs that have been recurrent e.g stiff neck, headaches, and palpitations. Pay attention to the circumstances that trigger such signs. What will you start doing differently?
