“To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” - Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.
Relaxation Exercise is a great way to achieve a level of mind/body synchronicity.
'Mens sana in corpore sano', is an ancient Roman proverb that means 'a healthy mind in a healthy body', for when one is in tune so the other must be.
Yes, exercise keeps our bodies supple and in peak condition but in the fast paced life of the 21st century many of us can't seem to either find or make the time to accomplish this.
But not all exercise has to be based on extensive workout regimes to achieve our ideal bodyshape and mindset.
It starts with the small changes we can make and like most things once you develop an appetite for exercise you'll find yourself wanting to do more.
This in turn builds up the resistance we need to ward off disease which attacks an unhealthy body easily.
It increases our stamina, overall health and how healthy we feel.
There are a myriad of things we can do for our bodies fitness from simply changing the way we breathe to walking, swimming, workouts and yoga.
For our minds there's meditation, visualisation and hypnotheraphy.
To improve our overall wellbeing there are treatments such as massage, sauna, aromatherapy, acupuncture, reflexology and reiki.
All have their place, their practitioners, their followers and each produces specific results but all have the intent to improve the state of minds, heal our bodies and increase the overall quality of our lives.
