Each of us has a cause-and-effect relationship between our minds and our bodies. Our minds regulate thoughts, and our thoughts regulate emotions. When either mind or body is suffering, this connection becomes out of sync.
A common example of the mind-body connection is the sensation of “butterflies” you may develop in your stomach when you feel nervous or anxious. Some people are highly tuned into this connection, while others are not.
A Behavioral Medicine specialist can teach you how to strengthen this connection with the goal of promoting overall physical and mental well-being.
