Harnessing the power behind the mind-body connection or as us nerd-folk call it – The biopsychosocial model (abbreviated “BPS”).
Each day is a new day to harness the power of our own unique potential. Learning to use your thoughts to positively influence some of your body’s physical responses, thereby decreasing stress, is merely one way to support your personal exploration of your best self. Research has shown that when we imagine an experience, we often have similar mental and physical responses to those you have when the event actually happens. Why? Because we have a vested interest in that connection. From a physiological perspective, our muscles have memory and thus, patterns can be built up, broken down and transformed.
Today’s post is about appreciating the mind-body connection through the art of visual representation and linking that connection to two of my favorite “meditative pass times;” which are running (leading with an active lifestyle) and yoga (mind and body meditation).
Enjoy and Namaste!
