When we think about health and our thoughts, it is difficult to comprehend that they are connected. The truth is, our thoughts affect our health. When we feel under emotional and mental pressure, we become stressed, and this is very bad for our health. Our energy is low, and we get headaches, aches and pains, tense muscles, rapid heartbeat, frequently become ill, get depression and are unable to sleep.
Communication is the key. When we are under lots of pressure, we need to get help and support. A problem shared is a problem halved is a useful idiomatic expression.
Eating healthy meals gives our body what it needs, and some foods claim to have stress-busting qualities. A diet of fruit and vegetables, fish, lean meat, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds and not to skip meals will help. Reducing our caffeine, nicotine and alcohol intake will reduce stress as caffeine and nicotine are stimulants and alcohol is a depressant when taken in large quantities.
Exercise is a great way to keep our mind healthy. Exercise releases natural chemicals in the brain called endorphins which help us to sleep better and relieve tension. We should play sports we enjoy or get out for a walk in nature.
Positive thinking is great for our health and wellbeing. When we remove the negative self-talk and approach problems more positively and productively, we will get more achieved because we cope better. So, think of the good things that have happened during the day, not the bad. We should not blame ourselves when things go wrong, work on a solution and not think the worst. We should not be too hard on ourselves; everyone makes mistakes. Above all, laugh with friends and family as it is a great way to lift the mood.
