Do you find yourself struggling to concentrate as the afternoon wears on? Does your energy seem to drain away as the hours pass?
It's easy to reach for a cup of coffee, or something sweet, when you're trying to increase your energy level and stay alert. While coffee or a sweet treat might help, the lift is often temporary. A few hours later, you may find yourself experiencing an energy crash and feeling even worse than before. Ultimately, you don't want to become reliant on ever-increasing amounts of coffee and sugar to get through the day.
Think back to a time when you were engrossed in an activity you enjoy. The time flew by and you were in a good mood. Your mind felt calm, focused and relaxed. If you suffer from physical ailments, you may even have found that your aches and pains didn't seem so bad.
This scenario demonstrates the mind-body connection, and how the mind can impact the body.
