Strengthen your Mind and Feel it in your Body!

Fortalece tu Mente ¡Y Siéntelo en tu Cuerpo!

A lot of people have had a really bad time this year. 7 out of 10 women feel that they are more tired and stressed than before the pandemic, and calls to emotional support lines are skyrocketing.
Stress, anxiety, depression and the suicide rate have increased. In the same way that overweight, obesity and related diseases are increasing. This harmful effect occurs in both directions because in terms of health, body and mind work inextricably together, for better… and for worse.

The ideal “marriage”

If there is a relationship that is “for life”, it is this one. In fact, research conducted in Australia in 2013 indicated that there is solid evidence of the link between the imbalance of neurotransmitters in the nervous system, in coordination with hormones, and the risk of developing a psychiatric illness.

This means that when we react badly to certain situations, a lot of stress, depression or anxiety manifests itself. And the body also feels these negative effects by reacting with:
  • metabolic changes

  • Cardiovascular diseases

  • and increased inflammation

Not surprisingly, the relationship between coronary artery disease and depression, for example, has been widely investigated. In turn, inflammatory and endocrine agents alter the central nervous system, enhancing mental problems.

What can we do so that our body and mind are in healthy synchrony?

  • Nourish ourselves better

With healthy fats such as fish, nuts and avocado, proteins such as eggs, fruits and green leafy vegetables.
  • Reward your brain in a healthy way

The brain needs to receive “good” stimuli so that the body-mind axis is balanced. For example, if you add cocoa or strawberries to your diet, dopamine will increase and you will feel more motivated.
  • Support it with herbal infusions

Prepare those like ashwagandha, ginkgo biloba, ginger, rosemary, San Juan, saffron, rodhiola and basil which, in addition to supporting the proper functioning of the brain, increase serotonin, which regulates our mood and sleep and makes us calm.
  • Add probiotics and prebiotics

The relationship between a healthy brain and a balanced intestine of the microbiota or intestinal flora has been proven. Therefore, when we consume products such as yogurt, kefir and sauerkraut (probiotics) or whole grains, bananas and vegetables (prebiotics), our microbiota improves, helping the production of serotonin.
  • Exercise and try new challenges

Exercise is one of the most powerful tools to keep this “mind-body marriage” stable and in positive synchrony. In fact, it oxygenates the brain, while helping it create new and better connections.
  • Enjoy the pleasure of sleeping

A scientific article published by the Asian Journal of Psychiatry showed that symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress, reported this year after the COVID-19 pandemic, may be associated with sleep disorders. During rest time, the brain reaffirms and strengthens the connections it makes during the day, so that they integrate our memory and other functions. But when we begin to experience excess stress, depression and anxiety, sleep becomes uncontrolled, unleashing more problems. Check out our articles on sleep to help you get organized again.
  • Strengthen, change and invent your “self-therapies”

Although it is not always easy to enjoy life, we cannot hand this responsibility over to anyone else. Go to those activities, places and hobbies that make you happy. Music? Paint? Beach? Plant flowers? Whatever! Get up early and do it!
