Creating a harmonious mind, body and spirit is essential to one’s physical and emotional well-being. Allowing these elements to fall out of alignment with one another will promote negative energy, which in turn increases your risk of illness. But how exactly does one harmonize his or her mind, body and spirit?
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
When stress builds up, it can take a toll on both your mind and body. According to StatisticsBrain, 77% of U.S. adults report feeling physical symptoms caused by stress. This may include trouble sleeping, elevated heart rate, sweating, or muscle tension. Rather than allowing stress to consume your life, let it slide and focus your attention on the positive aspects of your life, such as family and friends.
Spend Time in Nature
Spending more time outside will also help to harmonize your mind, body and spirit. Unfortunately, far too many people spend most of their waking hours indoors. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that the average American spends 93% of his or her life indoors. Human beings have lived in nature for hundreds of thousands of years, but we’ve just recently shifted our living habits to indoor homes and structures. As a result, we aren’t able to experience the beauty of mother nature and everything it offers. So the next time you are sitting around the house bored one day, head outside to explore mother nature.
Listen to Calm, Relaxing Music
Sometimes all it takes to align your body, mind and spirit is some good music. Music stimulates a part of the brain that has been associated with serotonin and endorphins, which is why you typically feel “happy” when you listen to it. Keep in mind, however, that music may also have the opposite effect by promoting negative energy. It all depends on the type of music that you are listening to. Choose calm and soothing tunes as opposed to aggressive tunes for maximum benefit. It doesn’t take long either, 5 minutes can really go a long way.
Seek a Tarot Card Reading
