The phrase "mind, body and soul" refers to the connection and relationship between these three aspects of yourself - mental/emotional, physical and spiritual. These parts not only influence each other, they also contribute to how you experience and interact with the world around you.
Let's take a look at 12 healthy habits that you can put into practice to look after your mind, body and soul.
Good quality sleep
Maintaining a healthy sleep schedule reduces your stress levels, improves brain function, lowers blood pressures and improves your immune system.
Drink lots of water
Water improves brain and bodily functions, energy levels and overall mood.
Eat foods that make you feel good
While everything is good for you in moderation, eating whole foods that are packed with nutrients and fiber will help your body to function at its best, making you feel good from the inside out.
Limit mental clutter
Moderate media and technology use to avoid taking on more mental or emotional baggage than you need to. Pay attention to how you feel when you scroll and be conscious to unfollow accounts that don't make you feel good. Social media is a much more enjoyable place when your feed is filled with posts that challenge you, inspire you, or bring you joy.
Move your body
Moving your body in a way that feels good to you allows you to use your energy and release anything that's been pent up within.
Journal your emotions and thoughts
Don't judge or filter yourself - let it all flow out authentically and write until you have nothing left to say. This is a great way to bless and release the things that are out of your control.
Positive affirmations and self-talk
Our thoughts are so powerful because they influence our words and actions, and thus our life. Be mindful of how you talk to yourself.
No matter where you are in the world or in life, there is always something to be grateful for. List a few of the things you are grateful for and notice how it makes you feel.
Meditation and mindfulness
Cultivate your relationship with your inner self through meditation or any mindfulness practice that allows you to connect with yourself on a deeper level.
Consistent human connection
We crave to be seen, to be heard, to belong. We crave love, understanding and support. Humans are wired to care for and connect with each other. Consistent and healthy human connection is incredibly powerful.
Having any sort of creative outlet allows you to focus your mind and tap into flow and intuition.
Be kind and gentle with yourself
The more you practice self-love, being kind to yourself, and forgiving yourself for your mistakes, you will realise just how worthy you are.
Looking after your mind, body and soul is an investment in your overall health and well-being. Creating healthy habits that you can practice every day is the key to creating positive and long-term change.
