October 11, 2020 (IANSlife) The truth is that our body and mind are not separate identities, they are one. Our mind is our subtle self while our bodies are the gross self.
On an average we have sixty to seventy thousand thoughts in a day and a large percentage of these thoughts are stressful especially during the current times, points out Reebok Mind Coach Vrinda Mehta.
This excessive stress energy is connected to almost all lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, depression, anxiety and much more, she says.
We cannot always control what happens around us but what happens within us can be brought under our control with true knowledge, diligent practice, and patience. “Just like we follow a healthy diet and a regular exercise routine for physical fitness we need to have a healthy mental diet of positive thoughts, emotions and regular breathing exercise or pranayama to ensure mental wellbeing.”
As the World marked Mental Health Day on October 10, she shares a few simple tips how mental health can be kept in check through positive life habits.
