We are made of up three parts: mind, body, spirit. If we are not constantly feeding each area, then we are more prone to things such as stress, anxiety, worry, and more. This isn't to say that if our mind, body, and spirit are in sync that we won't experience those less than pleasant feelings, but it does mean that we can have a better control over it.
So how do you know if you're imbalanced? There are many indicators, but here are a few:
1) You lack energy or feel sluggish majority of the time
2) You have trouble sleeping
3) Your thoughts are filled with negativity
4) You find yourself worrying a lot
5) You become easily angered at things that shouldn't anger you
These are just some of the signs that your mind, body, and spirit aren't connected to each other, and one, or more of those areas aren't getting the attention and care it should. If we are experiencing any of those above, we need to:
1) Acknowledge how we feel
2) Find safe, holistic methods to overcome them
Being a believer of the Bible and its principles, we are given the tools to help overcome any of these. Even if you don't believe, I guarantee it's still beneficial to guide you through whatever you may be dealing with. We all have or will have experienced worry or stress. The key is to recognize it early and take the necessary steps to get through it.
Prayer, meditation, stretching, eating healthy, working out are all holistic methods that can help us achieve and maintain balance in our mind, body, and spirit.
For you, it could be a combination of all those methods, or just a couple. The key is finding out what's best for you.
