A few years ago, I visited a physiotherapist due to foot pain. This experience unveiled a completely new world for me.
It was the first time I became aware of the pivotal role our feet play in supporting our bodies throughout our entire lives.
Our feet host numerous muscles, nerves, and joints that significantly impact our posture, stance, and overall health.
I began noticing many people walking with a slouched posture, carrying themselves improperly, leading to negative consequences (insufficient breathing, poor circulation, incorrect weight distribution…) that gradually deteriorate our health, especially as we age.
That’s when I learned that muscles have three phases:
In our lives in general, we focus on tension and relaxation, yet releasing seldom occurs, allowing tension and emotions to linger within our bodies.
This realization was a profound eye-opener for me because it applies both physically and mentally.
We engage in action and tension to accomplish tasks, then rest to recharge.
But when do we genuinely let go?
And what does letting go mean for you, physically and mentally?
I encourage you to reflect on this topic.
Personally, I had to learn this too.
Physically, I release tension by performing physical exercises every night before bed, helping alleviate muscle tension. This practice allows me to sleep “cleanly,” significantly enhancing my sleep quality.
The conscious caring for my body increased my confidence and trust in its capabilities, as I’ve taken measures to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Mentally, letting go involves focusing on what’s within my control in daily life and surrendering what’s beyond my control to a higher power. Accepting this notion has been pivotal in finding inner peace.
How do YOU let go, both physically and mentally? Have you ever pondered upon this?
It’s crucial to acknowledge that unresolved emotions accumulate within us daily, impacting our muscles and potentially causing long-term physical issues by weakening our immune systems.
The knowledge I’ve gained in recent years about how nutrition and exercise influence our psychological and mental capacity has completely transformed my perspective on health and well-being.
These insights have influenced my entire family’s lifestyle, subsequently impacting my clients as well.
I am elated and grateful that we are all adding more healthy years to our lives.
I invite you to explore these areas as well if you wish to take control of your health.
With love and appreciation,
