How much to you run on ‘automatic pilot’ and tend to ‘tune out’ of what’s going on around you? Practicing mindfulness means to pay more careful attention in a particular way. When we are mindful, we are aware of what’s going on outside and inside our own skin. All of our senses are alive and active and we know what is happening in this, the present moment. We allow ourselves to become more deeply and completely aware of what it is we are sensing.
Movement, Exercise and Rest:
Most adults should do 30 minutes of exercise, 5 days per week. To break this down further it’s suggested a minimum of 2 ½ hours a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (i.e. brisk walking, dancing, gardening, etc.) or 1 ¼ hours of vigorous aerobic activity (i.e. jogging, aerobic dancing, jumping rope, etc.) in episodes of at least 10 minutes, and preferably spread throughout the week. There should also be some muscle strengthening activities (pushups, weight bearing exercises, yoga, etc.)
Developing a healthy and balanced nutritional program is a cornerstone for attaining optimal health. Traditional American diets contain excessive amounts of processed foods which contribute to the development of disease and impede the healing process. Do you take the time to find nutritious foods and cook at home?
The spaces we inhabit have a major impact on how we feel, physically and emotionally. Consider: The climate, urban/country, your view, your home (clean, uncluttered, comfortable, temperature good, plants, music, lighting, décor, use of healthier alternatives for cleaning products).
Relationships and Communication:
There is a positive correlation between positive social relationships and good health. Do you get along well with your ‘inner circle’ of family and friends without them adding additional stress to your life?
Spirituality is at the core of your being; it is a central component of how you experience life and see the world. Spirituality frequently comes from our own experience of deep connection, meaning and purpose. This can provide a source of healing strength in the face of adversity, illness suffering or death.
Personal and Professional Development:
Some people have careers or daily activities (motherhood, volunteer work, creative endeavors, reading, etc.) that resonate with their purpose and values in life, while others work in jobs that have high demands with little personal or professional rewards. Sometimes there is a lack of balance across personal and professional aspects of their lives. Activities that connect us with energy, interest, satisfaction, and sheer pleasure enhance our sense of contentment and joy and ultimately to our health. These can be ‘doing’ activities or ‘being’ activities (watching the stars, watching the tide roll in, etc.).
A growing body of evidence indicates that virtually every illness we experience is influenced, for good or bad, by our thought patterns and emotions. The more we can encourage different modes of ‘communicating’ between the mind, the brain and the body, the more we can gradually form healthier pathways for thought, behavior and health. How positively do I think about things and myself throughout the day?
Professional Care – Prevention and Intervention:
Do you integrate the healthcare you receive from your physicians with complementary approaches to support your health such as acupuncture, massage, nutrition counseling or weight loss programs, nutritional supplements, energy medicine, etc. Do you generally lead a healthy lifestyle – avoid tobacco, excessive alcohol and drugs, take medications as prescribed?
