It can be difficult to properly manage your time in such a way that you’re able to work on both your mental and physical health.

It seems that sometimes they don’t really play well with each other.

However, they’re more similar than you may think.

By working on one, you can actually improve the other at the same time!

Everything in your body is connected.

Your mental health can have a direct effect on your whole body.

Your physical health can affect your mind and mental well-being.

If you let one deteriorate, the other will follow suit.

It can become a vicious cycle you don’t want to get lost in.

The Good News Is

This also applies to improvements, meaning that if you’re able to develop better physical health, you can easily develop better mental health.

As you improve your mental health, you’re likely relieving stress and relaxing quite a bit.

This can have a ton of positive physical effects on your body.

By ridding yourself of stress, you’re far more likely to lose weight, eat healthier, and stop experiencing things like aches and pains.

That in its self it worth Celebrating!

Stress can have a ton of negative effects on your physical health.

I personally know this one first had!

As you eat better and become healthier, your body will release endorphins that can make you have a better, more positive outlook on life and help you feel better in general. You’ll be able to tackle the stressors of life with grace & ease.

Exercise and physical fitness can also make you happy by seeing progress and results, releasing dopamine knowing that you’re making positive strides towards a better physical appearance.

While you can’t always work on both your mental and physical health every single day, you’re making strides on both regardless even if you only have time for one.

Have Grace On Yourself!

Don’t worry too much about trying to get everything balanced and spending more time on your health, when you try to eliminate all the things you love you’ll just end up getting stressed out and undoing all of your hard work. That is not what I want for you.

It’s okay to miss a workout, and it’s okay to take an extra mental health day. You’re not going to fall behind by taking a bit more time for yourself or some more time to do other things that you want or need to do. As long as you don’t stop your efforts altogether, you’re going to be just fine.

Knowing What Areas of Your Life Deserve Your Attention!

Below I am giving you some Affirmations you can use to encourage and inspire yourself as you embrace this path towards balancing your mental & physical health.

Write them in your journal, save them to your phone whatever you need to access them when you need to encourage yourself.

Self-awareness is knowing which situations deserve my attention.

Today, I know who I am and accept myself without apology.

Outside influence provides a look at alternate realities, but I am content with deciding the way forward based on my inner voice.

My life choices are based on what I know is right for me.

When I am at a professional crossroads, I rely on my balance of common sense and emotional wellness to make a decision. I know that both have a part to play in my ultimate satisfaction.

I am the only person who knows me as well as I do.

There is an intimate connection between my soul and mind that only I am familiar with. It brings self-awareness and helps me to determine how to spend my time

Knowing myself makes it easier to determine how to walk through life.

It makes difficult decisions simpler because I stay away from compromising my beliefs.

Only I know how to balance my own emotion and intellect.

Although others give advice from both dimensions, they are far from my center of truth.

I am the only person who knows me as well as I do.

There is an intimate connection between my soul and mind that only I am familiar with. It brings self-awareness and helps me to determine how to spend my time
