Why is Your Mind-Body Connection Important?
How is the mind-body connection explained? It means that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning.
In other words, our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are each day. On the other hand, what we do with our physical body (what we eat, how much we exercise, even our posture and breathing) can impact our mental state (again positively or negatively). This results in a complex interrelationship between our minds and bodies. Some would argue there is no “connection.” It’s all the same. It’s all one. It’s just “us”.
