Balance Mind Body and Soul

Here is a list of few super-simple things that can help balance your mind, body, and spirit. Slowly start incorporating them into your daily routine and see how they positively affect your overall health:

Exercise

  • Find an exercise you enjoy, and start doing it regularly.
  • Research shows that exercise boosts mood by pumping oxygen into the brain ans releasing feel-good endorphins.

Be grateful

  • Stop to think about the things you have going for you and appreciate them.
  • You can either make a mental list of the things you’re grateful for first thing in the morning or right before bed, or write them down in a gratitude journal.

Get plenty of sleep

  • Sleep is regenerative for your body. The more sleep you get, the better you will perform the next day.
  • Sleep is essential to every process in the body, affecting our physical and mental functioning, our ability to fight disease and develop immunity.

Breathe deeply

  • Get in the habit of taking deep breaths throughout the day and consider establishing a steady breath work practice.
  • Breath work has been associated with many benefits, such as stress relief, lower blood pressure, and sharper focus.

Spend more time with loved ones

  • In our busy lives, we need to make time for the people who matter most to us.
  • Make a point every day to check in with at least one friend or family member just to see how they are doing.

Eat plenty of greens

  • Dark, leafy greens are rich in vitamins and minerals. Start every morning with a healthy green smoothie, and feel your body thank you for it.

Smile more

  • Smiling not only offers a mood boost but helps our bodies release cortisol and endorphins that provide numerous health benefits.
  • It feels great, and some research even shows that “faking” a smile can make us feel happier in the moment.

How do you balance your mind, body and soul everyday?
