Mind-Body Connection

The mind-body connection is when the body reacts to something the mind is thinking. An example is, if you think about a very stressful situation in your life, you can raise your heart rate. Conversely, if you think about a stress free, calm and pleasant time you can lower your heart rate; all without moving from your chair!  You can also experience this connection through sounds, smells and pictures that remind you of things that are happy/good or challenging/bad.
