kaiser_tipThis month’s Kaiser Permanente sponsored health tip of the month has to do with mind-body connection to help you live a balanced, happy life!

Make a mind-body connection How you feel in your head affects how you feel in your body. When life gets overwhelming and pressure starts to build, it’s important to take time to focus on your emotional wellness.

Discover simple ways to tame tension, beat stress, and feel happy.

  • Breathe through it. 1 minute of mindful breathing is like hitting the reset button on your day. Breathe slowly and deeply, and focus on each breath to feel calm, focused, and grounded.
  • Practice gratitude. People who make it a habit to count their blessings report feeling happier and healthier. So the more grateful you are today, the more reasons you’ll have to be grateful tomorrow.
  • Unplug to recharge. Spend an evening offline. Play a board game, take a walk, or catch up with an old friend for a relaxing, rewarding experience.
