Mind-body wellness is based on the link between your mental and physical health. In other words, the better your mental health, the more likely you will be healthy physically. While this may seem obvious, many people tend to overlook the emotional aspect when thinking about their health.
Our minds and bodies are inextricably linked to one another. According to the University of Michigan Health, “…constant pain or a health problem like heart disease can affect your emotions. You might become depressed, anxious, and stressed, which could affect how well you treat, manage, or cope with your illness.”
What we think affects our bodies and how our bodies are doing feeds back into how we are feeling. Any holistic treatment to improve your mental health needs to include both these components. This is one of our specialties in ThrivingLane, where we strive to treat the whole person rather than problems in a vacuum.
In addition to traditional talk therapy, we combine mindfulness exercises, breathing techniques, and other mind-body interventions for you to achieve your best wellness. We combine ancient wisdom from eastern healing along with western evidence-based therapies.
Some of These Techniques Include:
- Guided and bite-sized for daily use
- Boxed breathing
- Ujjai breathing
Cognitive and Psychodynamic Therapy
- Help identify distortions and provide helpful reframes
- Further, understand how the past has influenced your present and what dynamics repeat themselves in your difficulties
You May Be Surprised to Hear That Many of Your Favorite Celebrities May be Practicing Mind-Body Wellness Techniques
Oprah Winfrey is a talk show host, television producer, and occasional actress who has made major contributions to the American entertainment industry, as well as large donations to several charities. In order to upkeep her busy schedule, just like any other person, Winfrey uses mindfulness techniques. In her O Magazine Winfrey states, “I always give myself Sundays as a spiritual base of renewal—a day when I do absolutely nothing. I sit in my jammies or take a walk and I allow myself time to BE—capital B-E—with myself.”
Making sure that you allot some alone time for yourself each week is key. In this hectic world, we often feel like we need to constantly be doing something, whether it be some form of work or socialization. However, we often overlook the importance of giving ourselves time to relax.
Why Thriving Lane?
While there is no harm in trying out some of the strategies listed above on your own, there is value to being coached by a mental health professional. Our minds are interesting organs that are often complex and resistant to change. Just as it may be helpful to get a physical trainer if trying to accomplish fitness goals, similarly getting support around implementing these interventions can be the key differentiator in outcomes.
Additionally, at Thriving Lane all sessions are done via our HIPAA compliant platform. All you need is a cellphone or desktop and you can experience therapy from the comfort, convenience and privacy of your own home. Finally, our clinicians do a detailed assessment and help identify which specific tools might be helpful to you depending on your symptoms.
