Mind Body Connection

Mind Body Connection

What does mind body connection mean?

When you hear the words ‘Physical Health’ what do you immediately think of?  Most people reply with words like ‘fitness & wellbeing.’
When you hear the words ‘Mental Health’ what do you immediately think of?  Most people say things like ‘anxiety & depression.’

I find this so interesting because in both cases we are talking about HEALTH!  Yet one has positive language attached to it and the other has negative language associated with it.

Human beings have struggled for centuries to understand the mind and its issues. Even today, we find this a difficult subject to deal with because we can’t see ‘mentality’ in a way that we can see ‘physicality’.

Neuroscience has taught us that the mind body connection is strong and powerful, especially when it comes to wellness. One definitely affects the other. The mind can convince us that we are too exhausted to dance, so we do nothing. Equally, the body can start dancing and show the mind that it wasn’t too tired.

For years now, I have been teaching the importance of mind body connection to help women deal with anxiety, lack of confidence, fear and other mental barriers that keep them from living life to the full.

The sooner you understand how powerful and influential the mind body connection is, the sooner you can use that to your advantage and change how you feel and behave. You will see that new, positive behaviour brings new, positive results.

Here are a few tips to help yourself and others:

  • If you saw someone in physical distress you would probably run to their aid, right? So, let me encourage you to do the same for someone in mental distress, for example, they are anxious or worried. A little compassion can make a huge difference. And when we reach out to help others there is the added bonus of feeling useful and good about ourselves.
  • Recognise that everyone is different. Each person brings a different viewpoint and unique experiences to every situation, and let that be ok! This attitude will calm your mind and take you from a place of judgment to a place of openness.
  • It’s ok to admit that you are not mentally tough every day. We all have days when we cope with life better than other days. Honesty is the key to inner peace. It’s exhausting pretending that you have life ‘sorted’. I promise you no one has life totally sorted. Everyone is worried about something most of the time.
  • Avoid labelling yourself or others. Just be you. Don’t be afraid. Accept that everyone struggles from time to time depending on external circumstances and their internal self-talk.
  • Teach your children to be resilient and bounce back from adversity. The sooner they learn to deal with disappointment and be flexible in their thinking the longer they will enjoy a healthy mind.
  • Be mindful. Spend time in nature, make music, lose yourself in sport & activity, create new positive memories, imagine your ideal day and make it a reality.
  • Choose to do something every day that challenges your mind and helps you grow. Learn a language, read a book, plan a holiday, tell jokes.

Manage Your Time Like a Pro Time is one thing we never get back. Time is one thing we tend to waste. Lack of time is something most people struggle with. So how do you manage your time like a pro and get stuff done? Here are a few of my handy tips: Organise Yourself I know it sounds simple, but many people find organising themselves so difficult! It can be a big challenge because organisation habits don’t come naturally. At first, it may feel like you are spending extra time trying to get and stay organised, but the payoff is worth it. Here’s a staggering statistic from USA: on average, Americans waste about 2.5 days per year looking for misplaced objects. Don’t be part of that statistic! Find a place for everything and keep everything in its place. This goes for computer files too! Create simple systems at home and work and monitor how much time you save. Batch Similar Tasks Together Batch all your similar tasks together. For example, don’t check your email every time someone pings you. If it’s urgent, go right ahead, but otherwise, set a time block every two hours or so to plow through all your emails at once. This keeps you focused, which is a more efficient way to work. Leave Wiggle Room Between Your Time Blocks Meet buffer-time. No one should have a fully stacked calendar with no time in between for a break. Block out buffer-time on your calendar in between meetings and tasks. Your future self will thank you when your days are more productive, and the hours are less exhausting. Stop Waiting Every once and a while, you’ll inevitably have to wait for something: at the grocery store, in the doctor’s office, in traffic. Instead of actually waiting, or deferring to your phone for entertainment, do something productive with your time. Listen to a podcast you’ve been meaning to try out, read a book on an interesting topic, or write in your journal. Turn waiting time into productive time. Do Less This may sound counterproductive but it’s not. Most of us take on way more than we need to, meaning we take on more than is beneficial to our work/life balance. We can often find ourselves offering to help others or wanting to control more projects than just our own. By doing that, you’re not helping yourself or those around you. In the end, you could wind up letting people down because you overpromise and under-deliver. Make Use of the Pareto Principle Have you ever heard of the Pareto Principle, otherwise known as the 80-20 rule? This principle says that you can get 80% of the work done in 20% of the time. Similarly, 80% of the results come from 20% of the actions. It can be applied to many things in life, so it’s a great concept to apply to your usage of time. Get in the habit of noticing what tasks get the most results. Spend more time on those actions and cut out some of the responsibilities that take up time but don’t produce the outcomes you are looking for. We want to be productive, not busy! Reading these tips and putting them into action are two different things! If you struggle to create and stick to a successful schedule for yourself (and your family) I’m here to help and keep you on track. Reply to this email or call me and let’s get on to it.
