IT'S ABOUT FEELING GOOD!
It is safe to say that “there is no one quite like you!”
Your likes and dislikes, your interests, your tastes – even the way you clean your teeth in the morning! – are individual to you. This applies equally to all domains of your physical state, including:
2. Physical activity history and current activity levels
3. Environmental and social influences
5. Occupational and socioeconomic status
6. Psychological health and wellness
what is the mind-body connection?
a change for the positive
1. Understand your body: shape, size, abilities, strengths and weaknesses.
Example: “I know I am a ‘pear shape’ and tend to carry weight around my hips.”
2. Greater awareness of mental and emotional tendencies.
Example: “Because of my pear shape, I am less likely to wear tight fitting bottoms because I think they make my hips look wide.”
Which leads to...
3. A look into our own personality and why we do the things we do.
Example: “I am actually stoping myself from wearing certain clothes as I am self conscious about this and it is repetitively making me feel negative towards my shape.”
4. A change in our attitudes, behaviours, and actions.
Example: “To make myself feel better and stop these negative thoughts, I am going to do something about it. I will set health-related (rather than image-related) goals to help me achieve my ultimate goals: positive self-esteem, self-worth, and self-respect.”

what should i do to balance my body?
Lack of sleep can lead to a whole host of undesirable physical and mental conditions, including poor concentration, increased anxiety, digestive problems, and depression. Undertaking some form of relaxation before going to sleep – yoga, meditation, reading a book – can draw your mind out of the fast-paced world we live in, and more in touch with your body and mind before you sleep.
