Girl, it’s the right time to let your mind, body, and soul grow and glow!

By Aya Alqarout

The mind, body, and soul are the three most vital aspects of your existence since they all need to be in harmony for your life to be happy and fulfilling. That’s a cliche, I know. You want the good stuff. How can you achieve that? Well, you are not alone, sis. In this blog, you will be given an insight into the terms of holistic philosophy and wellness and you will be introduced to ways that will help you achieve it.

Before we dive into it, let’s close our eyes and deeply inhale and exhale five times minimum. 

Are you on it? Not yet? Take your time! I will be waiting for you <3 

Welcome back with a more relaxed mind, body, and soul… But what are the definitions of each of these terms? Let’s dive into it now that you are ready!

Your wellness is derived from your physical, spiritual, and mental health, in addition to your physical health, according to the concept of mind, body, and soul. You must give careful consideration to your mind, body, and soul to maintain good health. The interaction of the mind, body, and soul is nothing new, and it has been used in many different fields. The 19th century is when the concept of treating the whole person—mind, body, and soul—began to emerge.

  • Mind: A person’s mind, also known as their faculty of awareness and thinking, is the part of them that allows them to be conscious of their surroundings and experiences as well as to think and feel.
  • Body: the physical makeup of a person, including the bones, flesh, and internal organs.
  • Soul: the non-physical, emotional, and character-defining component of a person.

A side note for the amazing bestie: although the terms “soul” and “spirit” are sometimes used interchangeably, they do not mean the same thing. The major distinction between the soul and spirit in a man is that the soul is the animate life, or the location of the senses, wants emotions, and appetites. Our connection to God is made possible through the spirit.

Mind, Body, and Soul: How They Interact

It is impossible to completely avoid facing challenges in life. This is how the mind, body, and soul work together to improve your general health and how you may strengthen this connection:

A person with a healthy mind exercises their brain frequently, and they actively choose to avoid stress and anxiety. There are happy feelings, thankfulness, and thanks, as well as a desire to learn new things. Every night, the brain needs to sleep, but it also needs to have things to think about and consider.

A healthy body is devoid of illness and disease, and it is pain-free. A nutritious diet, enough nutrition, and regular exercise are also necessary for bodily health. A healthy body seeks out movement and naturally wants to move. Maintaining physical health also requires scheduling routine examinations with your primary care physician to stay healthy or, if a problem does exist, to identify it quickly and begin treatment. 

Being spiritual means maintaining your composure and being aware that you are a part of something far larger than yourself. Being a member of a community where you can offer without expecting anything in return is essential to fostering a healthy attitude. Love is necessary for a strong soul. 

The term “holistic” is used in its broadest sense to describe holistic well-being. In other words, it essentially characterizes well-being as the interconnectedness of several aspects of health. So, a person’s whole health—and not simply their physical health—must be present. While experts disagree on which aspects of holistic wellbeing should be included, they all agree that it includes both mental and physical health. Dr. Candice Pert’s research from 1997 revealed that the body’s many organs as well as the mind may all experience sensations and emotions.

Best strategies for achieving holistic wellbeing

There is no one “correct” approach to developing holistic wellness solutions; there are countless possibilities. You could discover that there are instances when one area becomes more crucial than others as you become more conscious of the ways many aspects of your life overlap. A solution or action may occasionally lose some of its favorable influence. As you create this new, holistic strategy for wellbeing, remember to be empathetic and open-minded.

Your mind, body, and spirit may be balanced via daily activities. These are a few of our favorites:

  1. Journaling: Read our previous article on wellness to learn more about it!
  2. Take care of your health, precious! I think you have heard all about health. All you need to do is take action, eat a lot of greens, and exercise. Be sure to check out our blogs for ideas.
  3. Meditation: Stress can be reduced and awareness of unhelpful thinking patterns can be improved via meditation. You become calmer and respond to stressful events with more mindfulness, thanks to it. There are several approaches to meditation. Starting with guided meditation is a good idea if you’re new to meditation or check out the perfect way for you because there are many ways for you ladies!
  4. Brighten your horizons: It’s never too late to pick up a new interest or talent. At any age, developing new skills may help you stay mentally fit. You can learn a new language, skill, instrument, or something that you have been wanting to learn badly for a long time 😉
  5. Be growth-oriented: By viewing obstacles as chances to advance, having a growth mindset will help you overcome obstacles and become more adaptable to unanticipated hiccups in the path. You can also read our blogs on mindset and get deeper insights into it!

The list is infinite, and you will surely find several other ways. Search for it within yourself, and I’m sure that you’ll find it and grow beautifully in your way!

And now, since you have a scientific understanding of how the body-mind-spirit system functions, you may use it as medication to move on with your wellness journey. Everything, absolutely EVERYTHING in life functions better when your BODY is in balance, your MIND is focused and clear, and your SOUL is breathing. Your physical and mental functions are improved, and you feel happy. 

It’s your time to shine and thank yourself later. Stay strong, girl!
