Mind-Body Intelligence: How To Manage Your Mind...


But the mind houses your spirit and your motivation to function. These days, we have evidence that mental and physical health are so related to each other, that studies about mind-body integration in psychology seem especially important (Taylor, Goehler, Galper, Innes, Bourguignon, 2010).




Mind-Body Intelligence: How to Manage Your Mind...



To better cope with stress, consider how you might minimize factors that make it worse. Here are some tips that can help you better manage stress and hopefully prevent some of the damaging effects it could have on your brain.


Get organized. Using strategies to help manage your workload can also reduce stress. For example, each day, create a concrete list of tasks you need to accomplish. This way, your duties won't seem overwhelming. Making a list also gives you a clear end point so you know when you are done. "Laying tasks out like this helps reduce the feeling that the brain is being bombarded," he says. It can also help you predict when you are likely to be stressed.


Get help if you need it. Reaching out can help you become more resilient and better able to manage stress, which may ultimately protect your brain health. Earlier intervention may reduce disability caused by stress-related complications later on.


There are ways to improve your emotional health. First, recognize your emotions and understand why you are having them. Sorting out the causes of sadness, stress, and anxiety in your life can help you manage your emotional health. Following are some other helpful tips.


Genetic factors are passed down (inherited) from a parent to child and cannot be controlled. But many environmental and lifestyle factors can be changed or managed to reduce your risk. These factors include:


Think about your role models. How do they handle stress? If you can learn to manage your stress response and stop reacting negatively to your environment, you can prevent your mind from signaling genes that cause disease. You can stay well, and you can heal yourself from diseases you already have.


So, that was the first thing. The second thing was that they realised that it was the mismanagement of their emotions and the hormones of stress that really began to create their condition. Now, stress is when your brain and body are knocked out of balance.


As I started to get clients who travelled a long way to my office, and I began thinking about how I could better support them - although they could rent biofeedback devices for home use they needed to learn how to work with biofeedback. I wrote my first book, "Mind-Body Intelligence: How to manage your mind using biofeedback and mindfulness" and later began working on video-based training material as the basis for a home based course in biofeedback for stress management.


Any instrument in your life is useful to you only if it takes instructions from you and is managed by you. Please see, the state of your mind is such that it says its own things, it does not listen to you. Your mind is not doing what you say; you do whatever your mind says. That means you are a terrible manager. If you are like this, you will only manage external situations by accident.


Being able to manage and relieve stress is the key to staying balanced, focused, and in control, no matter what challenges you face in life. As well as helping you cope with day-to-day stressors, employing quick stress relief techniques will also help you bring your nervous system into balance when practicing the meditation part of this toolkit.


Unfortunately, without being connected to all of your emotions, you can't manage stress, fully understand your own behavior, or appropriately control how you think and act. But whatever your circumstances or challenges, the skills for improving EQ and managing your emotions can be learned at any time.


Why? Simply put, due to the mind-body connection we just introduced. There is a direct link between your physical and mental well-being. We all know that one of the first ingredients recommended to improve psychological health is exercise.


In terms of your athletic performance, self-image relates to the vision you hold of how successful you can be, how you manage anxiety, how you perform under pressure, how much confidence you have, and so much more.


The mind and body seek harmony, meaning, the image you hold in your mind and real-life must align. So when you see yourself as someone who does not perform well under pressure, that creates a mind-body connection that upholds this image in pressure-filled moments.


But how does this play into the mind-body connection? Since emotions drive behavior, the actions you do on the field will be fueled by the emotional state you are in. If you are operating off intensely negative emotions, your performance will suffer as a result.


The latter, however, is more difficult and is where such effort must be displayed. To gain greater awareness over your thoughts, in order to build a stronger mind-body connection, there are two techniques that prove beneficial: mindfulness and self-reflection through writing.


This is known as cognitive restructuring and is the process by which you replace harmful thoughts with positive ones. In seeking a greater mind-body connection, regulating the thoughts in your head will contribute to higher levels of performance.


Additionally, from the perspective of mind-body medicine, specific musical frequencies can be used to help stream and transform particular energies from one area of the body-mind-spirit to another, as well as throughout your whole life being.


Some brain diseases will heal without permanent damage. Others may resolve but leave deficiencies in your mental or physical abilities. Some are lifelong, progressive conditions. Your healthcare provider will work with you to manage your symptoms and help you preserve or regain as much function as possible.


Meditation is a foundational tool for emotional balance, nervous system regulation and overall healing. Meditation allows you to access the emotional centers of the brain and rewire patterns of reactivity, trauma and stress. We developed the Emotions Are Energy guided meditation to help you move stuck emotional energy, release patterns of stress and trauma and strengthen your mind-body connection. This is our go to meditation for keeping our emotions and nervous system regulated. We have found when practiced regularly it leads to greater presence, inner calm and energy.


In addition to brainspotting, somatic therapy and meditation, we have found biofeedback to be a time-tested powerful tool for regulating the nervous system and creating emotional wellbeing. Biofeedback is a compelling tool that validates the power of the mind-body connection. In a matter of minutes, you can create significant changes using your mind to shift your body or vice versa.


As you build a practice of self-awareness and mindfulness, you can then use coping strategies to address the issues you identify. These coping strategies can help you regulate your emotions, manage your stress, and take care of your mind and body.


Although the methods for reconditioning the habit patterns of your mind and emotions are simple to do, it's your commitment to practicing them consistently until they become second nature that will empower you to effectively reduce long-term patterns of stress and promote health and well-being. The long-term benefits of one person's choice to manage their emotions and neutralize negativity in the environment cannot be underestimated.


"Self-awareness is the ability to focus on yourself and how your actions, thoughts, or emotions do or don't align with your internal standards. If you're highly self-aware, you can objectively evaluate yourself, manage your emotions, align your behavior with your values, and understand correctly how others perceive you." 041b061a72
