Our individual states of mind have a bearing on our lives. Stress, depression, anxiety and problems with self-esteem can take a heavy toll on our wellbeing. Other problems such as addictions, conflict and chronic illness can wreak havoc in our lives.
As a result of the direct link between the mind and body, physical problems can emerge from psychological ones. Therefore, taking care of our mental state is crucial to living a good life and also serves as preventative medicine, which helps deter organic illnesses that can and often do arise from life problems generating chronic stress.
