Explore the Intricate Mind Body Relationship
Healthy Mind/Healthy Body
Your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. This is a type of “mind/body connection.” Like when you are chronically anxious or stressed, your body reacts by increasing blood pressure or with the onset of a stomach ulcer.
Poor emotional health can weaken your body’s immune system, making you more susceptible to colds and other infections during emotionally difficult times. Poor nutrient status is another major factor that contributes to your ability to handle stress, ward off depression, deal with anxiety, and a host of other mental health issues.
