Health Tip

So let’s revisit the Autonomic Nervous System.

It has two parts:

  1. Sympathetic (fight-or-flight/stress response system) and
  2. Parasympathetic (rest, digest, calming system).

These both have wonderful jobs to do, helping us be all that is human. But balance of these two systems is important and with all the stress we have in the world right now, learning how to increase your parasympathetic system activation is a good idea. This contributes in wonderful ways to our immune system as well – which is also crucial.The parasympathetic nervous system is the part of the nervous system we want to activate at the end of your sessions at Mindset. Why?

  • Reduction of your heart and respiratory rate
  • Efficient and effective recovery
  • Release of certain hormones and chemicals required for internal balance
  • Muscle relaxation
  • It is the perfect time to implement your mindfulness practice
Other ways to increase parasympathetic nervous system activation outside of your time at Mindset:
  • Spend time in nature
  • Avoid stimulants and sugar
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Daily breathing practice
  • Daily purposeful walks
  • Visualization exercises for relaxation
  • Meditation
  • Remove yourself from situations you know will increase your stress

Health Tip # 3:

What information are you GIVING from your body? 
We spoke before about taking information into your body and how this affects your health, but what about the information coming FROM you?  Are you using healthy communication skills with others?
 
What we say, how we say it, when we say it – all this matters.  Thinking about the best way to verbally communicate information can be exhausting but with practice, you can improve your ability to communicate your ideas with ease.  This week, first try listening more“When you talk, you only repeat what you know.  When you listen, you will learn something new.” – Dalai Lama

Health Tip # 2: What information are you putting in your body?

– HEARING:  The information you put into your ears affects you both consciously and subconsciously.  Consider this – What you are listening to?  What radio station or music or news are you listening to?  How does it affect your belief system?
– WATCHING: The information you put into your eyes and the eyes of those around you affects all of us in many ways.  It will alter the chemicals in our body.  It will change hormone levels. It will affect your conscious and unconscious thoughts.
– EATING/DRINKING: The information you put into your mouth also affects your health in many ways – emotional, physical and cognitively.  Are you taking in substances that promote growth mode or defense mode in these systems?
