Psycho cybernetics

Share This Post

Interesting name for a book don’t you think? The power of the mind has always fascinated me. I might have mentioned this book once before but I was reading it again on the weekend and it got me thinking. The author was talking how its so important to ‘blow off steam’ for mental health. It happens in nature in many ways and it something we absolutely need to do to keep on an even keel.

But how many of us do it? The author referred to different strategies to achieve a calming effect from metaphorically going to your happy place in your mind. I think this is a great tactic but something that is often forgotten about is the therapeutic nature of blowing of steam, through exercise. A client was mentioning the other day a study that was showing how beneficial strength training was for dementia. I can guarantee you that there so many other ailments, especially depression that will be relieved or even prevented by good old fashioned sweating it out, that if more people did it, pharmaceuticals wouldn’t be the mega profitable business that it is. I know exercise has made a huge difference to my temperament throughout my life, I encourage you to dip your toe in the water to see how it helps you manage stress.

The ‘side effects’ of this wonder drug may just end up making your doctor and your chemist redundant.

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
