Healthy mind healthy body

Buddha in meditationUsually having an unbalanced mind means having an unhealthy body in some way shape or form. Whether it’s that your lack of mental balance leads to over-eating and consequently a battle with weight problems, development of heart disease, diabetes or other health issues that result from your compulsive over-eating; or it’s lung cancer, liver disease or other health problem that results from using cigarettes, alcohol, drugs and other substances that are harmful to the body to cope with your unsettled mind, the connection between a healthy mind and a healthy body or an unhealthy mind and an unhealthy body cannot be denied.

Anything that you can do daily to maintain mental balance will be good for your over all health. When your mind is alert and positively focussed you’re less likely to do things that are in any way self-destructive; so taking care of your mind is the first step in taking care of your body.

I haven’t yet purchased Richard Burr‘s Guided Mindfulness Meditation CD. I came across his site only today and the reason I am interested in his CD is because it seems to be echoing some conclusions I have previously come to myself about the importance of being “aware” in every moment, or as much as is possible to be aware in every moment. So I plan to get the CD to see if I might find it useful.

Richard Burr, according to the information on his website, specializes in spiritual guidance and works at Promises Treatment Center in Malibu, California.
