The mere mentioning of the word fasting may immediately trigger unpleasant ideas to spring up in your mind. You may also think that fasting is no more than just depriving yourself of delicious food, however discovering its benefits of fasting may very well convince you that doing it can really contribute to your overall health. Contrary to the common misconception that fasting equates to deprivation, fasting can actually be a treat for your mind and body.
The serious impact of stress on the body should never be overlooked. Stress not only brings your overall happiness level down, but also plays a significant part in the development of illness and disease. Recent research shows how long-term stress can significantly compromise your immune system and increase your risk of contracting a cold. What’s more, the research helps to show what is widely known — that traumatic events in life often pave way for illness and disease.
Mind, body, and health are all interconnected. It doesn’t take scientific research or surveys to determine how the way we think, perceive, and taking in events is both directly and indirectly related to the quality of life and health, but recent research has done just that anyway. The survey found that those who perceive past, present, and future experiences in a negative way tend to succumb to the hardships brought on by illness and disease.
Optimism and positive feelings rest at the foundation of both a happy and healthy life. Avoiding unhealthy and harmful foods is extremely important for maintaining a healthy body and a healthy brain, but it is your own thoughts, perceptions and thinking processes which profoundly impact the health of your mind and body alike. Even while you’re engaging in a healthy diet and lifestyle, you may find yourself feeling sluggish and unhappy.
Not only is stress arguably more prevalent than ever before given the current circumstances of the modern world, but the detrimental effects of stress on your body are certainly now more understood than ever. With research indicating that high stress levels can actually increase your risk of premature death by a staggering 50%, it is apparent that stress is perhaps a leading killer in the general public and it is now more necessary than ever to de-stress. Here are 3 ways to naturally combat stress.
The mind is powerful – much more powerful than many individuals recognize. If you were to harness the potential of this energy transmitter in your head, then great feats could be reached far beyond what can currently be conceived. Scientists have already proven that your thoughts are powerful determining factors in your overall health, and that your mindset can ultimately create — or delay — self-healing.
Sometimes it really is the thinking that makes it so. Spend your days focusing on your vibrant health and you will be vibrantly healthy. In contrast you could make it known that you lack a healthy lifestyle, and as a result you will continue to live an unhealthy lifestyle. While this belief is held by many, a recent study has come out with even mainstream scientists proclaiming the very real power of thought.
While seldom consciously recognized, most people truly do lack self-connectedness. This can be exemplified through a mere observation of how most people breath every day. Breaths are usually taken in short bouts which ultimately bring about some degree of stress, rather than deeper breaths that are subsequently more relaxing. These short breaths are almost always taken with a breath through the chest instead of the proper body area – your stomach.
