Caring for Your Physical Body

by Bethany Kelsey | July 14, 2020, 09:46 AM

Your mind, body and spirit are beautifully intertwined.  The interwoven relationship holds powerful potential for your well-being.  I ask you to recall a distinct moment when you were incredibly happy.  How did your body feel?  Did you feel alive, energetic, awake, or butterflies in your belly?  Now, I ask you to recall a distinct moment when you felt ill.  What emotions were you experiencing?  Were you sad, depressed, or anxious?  Are you beginning to see how intermeshed the mind, body and spirit truly are?   

Holistic Well-being

Over the next few blogs, we will be exploring multiple ways to care for your physical body in a way that positively impacts your mind and spirit.  Specifically, we will discuss self-myofascial release (a form of self-massage for tired muscles), nutrition and hydration.  Each of these topics speaks to your holistic well-being.  

Encouragement

Health and well-being are a lifelong journey.  No matter where you are in your journey, I urge you to remember that you are worth it.  Taking care of you is paramount and is more than okay.  We are here to encourage you, to offer helpful tools, and to sometimes challenge you ☺

I offer a small challenge.  Until we meet again, continue thinking about how your thoughts impact your physical health and how your physical health impacts your thoughts.  You may be surprised!

In health,

Bethany and Jordan
