My Soul-Nurturing Practice
I work really hard to nurture myself body, mind, and soul. However, I realized recently that I usually only blog about physical health and don't share much about the other two pillars. And yes, your mental and spiritual health are PILLARS and they are just as important as your physical health. :)
When we think about health, we often think about eating well and exercising regularly. While those two things are very important, our overall health goes way beyond just the physical being. Our mind and body are interconnected in ways that science is still researching and figuring out.
Have you ever gotten so stressed that it made you physically ill, or in pain?
Have you ever eaten everything but the kitchen sink as an emotional response to something?
Or maybe, you broke up with a boyfriend/girlfriend and felt so sick you couldn't eat at all for days?
Have you heard stories about people who were told they had 6 months to live, and then they went out and lived the best 6 months that any of us could ever dream of...only to find they were miraculously cured?
These, my friends, are examples of the mind-body connection.
