This article explains how the body, mind, and soul are interconnected and a problem with one can lead to a problem in another.

How to Integrate the Body, Mind, and Spirit?

We all know the definition of health. Being healthy does not only mean wellbeing of the body, but it is also about the mind and spirit being healthy. One should be healthy physically, mentally and spiritually. For this, we should start practicing to be aware at the level of the body first, then the mind, and finally work on spiritual awareness.

How to Be Aware of Oneself?

The Body

For the body, we should give importance to nutrition. Take care of the diet and include natural foods, herbs, and macrobiotics. It is also important to excercise, be it, yoga, walking, dance, cycling, swimming or sport. Another big boost you can give your physical body is sleep. Proper rest and sleep, although often ignored, the lack of it can take a toll on your overall health.

The Mind

About the mind, the best way to bring awareness is by meditating daily. Nothing can beat meditation and relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, biofeedback, water therapy, music, etc. Focus on your breath, posture, and intuition. Just as the body needs training with exercise, the mind needs to be trained in meditation. It is a slow process, but in the long run, it will make you more positive and strong.

The Spirit

And finally, to be aware at the spiritual level means to understand the self. 'Who am I?" The answer to this question is everything in itself. So, at the spiritual level, you will be able to understand the purpose of your life and your existence. You will be able to see that there is a lot of burden which you are unnecessarily carrying over your shoulders. Throw them away and walk happily. Be in the present at all times.

Holistic Healing

It is proven through years of scientific research that we are solely responsible for inviting illness to our own body. The body reflects our thoughts and beliefs. Every single cell within our body responds to every single thought that you think and every single word that you speak.

It is necessary to take medicines and appropriate treatment when we get an illness, but it is more important to take care of the preventive measures so that there will be no need to take medicines.
