Mind, Brain, Body Connection

Mind, Brain, Body Connection

In highlighting Mental Health Awareness Week, it’s important to talk about the

mind—->brain—->body connection. In simple terms: it means our entire being connects with each other. How we think and feel impacts how our body responds and vice versa. This week, we want to emphasize that mental health isn’t separate from physical health: it’s all intertwined. If you’re feeling depressed or anxious or not like yourself, please tell someone! Help is ready and available. Don't suffer in silence. Speak up!

 

 

As we think about our own mind—>brain—>body connection, what are some activities your student enjoys on a daily basis to combat stress? If you're feeling stuck on finding a solution, here are some ideas you can share below: 

 

  • Exercise

  • Plenty of sleep,

  • Hydrating with plenty of water

  • Yoga

  • Journaling

  • Pottery or art class,

  • Music
