A healthy mind and bodywork best together when nothing is in the way. Clearing your mind and moving your body is important and a great way to reconnect the energy between the two. There’s something magical and physiologically healing about the way your mind and body connection improves through movement. 

When our bodies are moving – with heart rates up and lungs working at full capacity – a series of reactions begin that improve our health and spark calm and clarity in the mind. The act of elevating the heart rate and getting the body warm and active clears the mind. 

Being intentional about the mind and body connection includes activities that promote health and well-being. No matter what your experience level, there are plenty of ways to get moving and clear your mind. 

Try one of these activities

Yoga- Yoga practices are a low impact way to clear the mind and move the body. From beginner through advanced, yoga focuses on three B’s that connect the mind and body – breath, balance, and body pose

Breathing is focused to hold the yoga pose and to help the body relax which helps clear the mind. Balance is required to achieve more difficult poses. The focus of the mind on breathing and balance intertwines the mind and body connection. As the body achieves poses, moving from one to the next, the mind concentrates on breathing and balance in a new way and further connects the mind and body. 

Cardio- There are as many ways to engage in a cardio workout as you want. From kickboxing, circuit training, Zumba workouts, Pilates, to running, there are unlimited ways to get your heart rate up, blood pumping, and breathing elevated. 

Cardio clears the mind by helping the brain release serotonin and other feel-good chemicals. Cardio gets the body warm and the effort forces the brain to let go of worries and cares, which frees the space up for dreaming, sorting through things, and having a-ha moments. 

Outdoor activities- From sporting events to hiking, being outdoors is one of the best ways to engage in clearing your mind and moving your body. Getting out into nature and admiring the scenery, breathing fresh air, and engaging in a fun activity clears your head and promotes well-being. 

Switch things up by trying a new activity each week. Take a hike, go camping, ride a horse, play with your pets, there are so many ways to enjoy the outdoors, and get your body moving. 

There are plenty of ways to improve your mind and body connection. Eating right, self-care, and outlets for self-expression – but none beat the benefits of clearing your mind through movement. Make exercise and moving your body a daily part of your routine.
