Transitioning from a Crisis:

Mind, Body, Spirit Balance

April 29, 2020 at 8 pm ET

Participate in this FREE 90-minute Sip-N-Learn to balance your mind, body and inner spirit to transition to a more compassionate state of Being and Doing during and after a Crisis

As we start talking about transitioning past the covid-19 quarantine, many are talking about getting back to “normal” life. But what is that?

Many of our systems and processes were broken even before this pandemic. We saw that in the extremely low levels of engagement of employees in the workforce, in the rising frequencies of mental health disorders among Millennial and Gen Z members of the population, in the ongoing obesity epidemic that claims 300,000 lives annually, and in the divisiveness created by violence against marginalized populations and much more. Things were definitely not healthy by any sense of the word. Why would we want to go back to this “normal”? Why should we? We deserve better.

All of these aspects of our lives are interconnected.

When we find out how, we can bring our lives back into balance. And, we have the opportunity to do so right now!

Our Minds, Body systems, Spirit and our Actions are all interconnected in life. 

Multi-disciplinary scientific research on the interconnectedness of our minds, bodies, spirits and actions suggests that  balancing these aspects of our lives helps us heal better and faster from negative experiences.

What is the difference between trauma and stress? Which have you experienced before and through this quaratine period?

Research in the field of trauma and stress has conclusively demonstrated that the two concepts are in fact very different and shouldn’t be used interchangeably. Trauma is life-impairing in negative ways, whereas a certain amount of the right types of stress can actually improve our productivity and functioning.

When we change our minds, we can change our brains. And when our minds are healthy, it leads to healthy body and healthy actions. In turn, healthy bodies and actions also deeply impact the health of our minds. In a nutshell, this is the key to growth.

This never-ending feedback loop is a part of our human nature, and it needs constant and consistent practice to maintain balance and counter the internal and external stressors we face in our daily lives.

How can we create systems and habits for success that keep our lives in balance moving forward?

Creating sustainable habits that align well with your life and that resonate with you is the key to making sure that all the interconnected parts of your mind, body, spirit and actions stay balanced and aligned with your goals.

Balancing your mind, body, spirit and actions has been tied to better performance, to the ability to think critically even in times of stress, and, to making better, strategic, future-oriented decisions.
