Have you been thinking that it might be time for a new frame of mind? Your mind and body are powerful allies, that can work together to promote your overall well-being.

The things we are think in our minds can determine how we feel. And vice versa how we feel physically can affect our way of thinking. When the mind is stressed it causes problems for the body, tense muscles, headaches and stomach problems are to name a few.

Research shows our thoughts; feelings and expectations affect not only what chemicals the brain produces but also the amount. Our brain produces substances like endorphins and gamma globulin, which help keep us healthy and are natural painkillers. Therefore a positive attitude can heal the body.

So for a state of mind that supports a healthy body remember this quote, “your body hears everything your mind says.”
