Ever since I started participating in the Carnival of Healing, majority of the articles I’ve received happen to be about fitness, losing weight and diets that work or don’t work and some on herbal techniques to cure various diseases. Exercise, good nutritious diet and medicines are certainly helpful in the healing process but for a complete healing to take place, inside and out, we need to understand the strong mind and body connection and find a way to live a balanced life.
Since diet articles weren’t doing much to my emotional and spiritual life, I’ve found other ways to find peace and calm and take care of stressful situations. I’ve found that helping others in need in turn helps me feel better. It’s easier to forget your own problems when you are busy helping others. So, I’ve been volunteering some of my time to various causes as I believe that the real responsibility to heal ourselves lies with us taking some action and not just reading, writing or attending some counseling sessions else we will continue to hurt.
As you read this week’s healing articles, I would love to know what you practice to get rid of negativity and heal yourself from hurts and severely stressful situations.
