Your Mind-Body Loop

The pages below will supply you with articles about how the mind and body are always talking to each other, because the connections are built right into us. We find the connection between the mind and body in direct links between the nervous system and other systems of the body:

  • The cardiovascular system
  • The digestive system
  • The immune system
  • The respiratory system
  • The endocrine system
  • The musculoskeletal system

Those links go both ways, so not only do our body systems respond to mental events (for self-preservation), but our mind also receives feedback from the body. Prolonged emotional stress becomes less productive and impacts how our body operates.

At the same time, chronic stress on the body sends signals to the mind that things are not “ok”, which of course, can add to emotional responses. These pages offer insights on how to put the brakes on the vicious cycle that develops, restore balance, and live your best possible life.
