20 Health and Healing Affirmations
In today’s world where everything travels at hyper-speed and we are more expectant of instant gratification than ever, it can be a challenge to make our health a priority. How many times day do you see or hear someone talking about wanting to lose weight and lose it now? From commercials to media to social settings, insta-health is a hot topic. Of course as we’ve all experienced, there’s no such thing as a quick fix cure-all.
Your health is a lifelong journey that takes mindful dedication each and everyday, but yet because of the demands of our lives, we easily forget to take care of ourselves when we feel “good.” We push our bodies and our minds to the limit and keep going until something “goes wrong.” Those problems are often short-term, but can have long-term effects that we don’t notice until it becomes a serious ailment.
When it comes to your long-term wellbeing, physical health and mental health are closely tied together, yet too often we don’t make that connection. In particular, stress is a major contributor to poor physical health.
According to the American Psychological Association’s “Fact Sheet: Health Disparities and Stress,” intense or prolonged stress can be extremely impactful on the body.
- “Long-term activation of the stress-response system can disrupt almost all of the body’s processes and increase the risk for numerous health problems.” (Mayo Clinic Organization, 2011; NIH, 2011)
- “Stress may prematurely age the immune system and could enhance the risk of illness as well as age-related diseases.” (Djuric et al, 2010; Geronimus et al, 2010)
One way you can incorporate more health into your life is to make it a part of your daily affirmation and meditation sessions. Even if it’s just five minutes and the beginning and the end of your day, slowing down to focus on your body and clear your mind can make a huge impact on your overall wellbeing.
