Mind, Body And Soul Habits
As we continue to share ideas on the mind and body connection as well as live through this global crisis I have been taking time to consider what habits I can be working on for my mind, body and soul. Today I will share a couple of ideas with you how to connect mind, body and soul with better habits.
To nurture and nourish your entire self, you want to focus on your daily habits, practices, and behaviours that make up the majority of your life. These are all choices and can be changed when you find the right purpose. Meaning finding the reason WHY it would be important for you to take the time to create better habits on purpose.
I have written about finding your WHY in previous posts. (here)
Here are some healthy habits for your body, mind, and soul.
Nurture Your Body
To start with, you want to nurture your body. This is when your habits help your physical health, such as eating a more balanced life-affirming real organic food diet, exercising and moving well every day, and getting better sleep.
Think about what habits will help your physical health. It is going to be different for everyone, but maybe you find that doing exercise like yoga in the morning helps you to feel energized for the rest of the day or getting outside for a morning walk to get some fresh air and sunshine. You might start your day with warm lemon water or promise that you will have fruits and veggies with every meal of the day.
You are the only one that can practice improving and nurturing your body. Take the time to intentionally decide what is best for you and allow yourself to practice each day.
Nurture Your Mind
To nurture your mind, you want to learn more, add in creative activities, read, and focus on avoiding negativity. Think of habits that will improve your mind, both your intellectual mind and your creative mind.
Some of these habits might include:
You can start slow, and just think of what is bothering you the most right now. Do you feel like you aren’t using your skills? Are you struggling with a lack of time for reading? This is usually a good place to start.
Nurture Your Soul
Finally, choose habits that help to nurture your soul. This can be meditation, spiritual growth, digital breaks, or writing in a journal. Me personally I find my soul sings when out in nature. Walking/hiking the trails or simply out walking in my neighbourhood is so enjoyable on any day and especially the beautiful days. Think about habits that are good for your mental health.
You might start working more on your spiritual growth with books and community events, or maybe you find that you need the mental break from social media and do digital detoxes on a regular basis.
Also, keep in mind many habits fit multiple categories. Yoga is good for your physical health, soul, and mind. Reading can also fit into multiple categories. Walking is one of the simplest and best ways to connect mind, body and soul. Pick and choose a wide range of healthy habits and practices that will nurture your entire self.
