“Good health comes from within. External treatments alone are not enough.”
A Buddhist principle says that having good thoughts and doing fair actions we can purify our inner self. Undoubtedly, our mood directly affects our physical health and we have to find a way to control how much we let from this world influence us.
It is a true fact that our good health depends very much on our state of being and that happens for a number of reasons. Firstly, a person who stays positive all the time has more chances to be healthy than a pessimistic one. If you are surrounded by happiness, joy and other feelings like these, you will attract only positive energy. But we all know that, these days, it is very difficult to show a smile all the time. The biggest problem is that, being so busy, we forget to take that precious time just for ourselves and relax. Secondly, in case of illness, it became obviously that there is no physical health without a good mental state. Healing is not only about treating your body, it is also about finding a balance which enables you to cure from inside out.
As I see things, being a healthy person means to take care of both, mind and body. There is a strong connection between them which we can’t ignore. To conclude, if we constantly do things for our soul, things which make us happy, as spending quality time with our love ones or enjoying a good book, our bodies will benefit from these pleasures too.
