Lesson 4: Mental Health
Our body and mind are one and cannot be separated. Body posture, breathing, thoughts, meditation, and visualization help overcome stress.
- Posture can have a huge impact on how we feel, just as how we feel is often betrayed by our posture.
- Breathing deserves our full attention. Breath is the basic condition of life.
- Mental attitude can be a friend or foe. Your thoughts and ideas can reprogram your entire mood and feelings.
- Meditation allows us to find a little stillness, calm, clarity and peace. Meditation allows us to escape reality for a little bit.
- The purpose of visualization is to see yourself as you wish to be, happy, healthy and full of life.
