Your mental and emotional health significantly impact acid loads on the body, and as a result long-term health, vitality, and resilience. Whatever the external stress of life, with practice, our inner environment can remain at peace; at poise; aware and grateful.

The Power Of Mind For Thriving Health

They say it’s all in the mind – and it very well may be . A simple change in mindset can work wonders. A positive outlook in life can often be the one missing piece in the puzzle while trying to achieve optimum health and wellbeing. Mindfulness-based treatments have been shown to reduce anxiety and depression. There’s also evidence that mindfulness can lower blood pressure and improve sleep. It may even help people cope with pain. So, whether its meditation that can slow cellular aging or simple optimism that can be linked to boosting immunity,  there is a mindfulness modality for everyone.


Wellness Promoting Activities To Try:

Music Therapy​

Music Therapy

Use music to help calm and restore your mental equilibrium. Consider classical music (by Bach, Mozart), chants ( madrigals, canticles) and Helen Bonny’s music suggestions allow us to be in the moment as the music carries us to deeper self-awareness.

relaxation response

Relaxation Response

Relaxation response training has been scientifically confirmed to promote wellbeing and reduce distress, anxiety, and fear. I recommend Herbert Benson’s relaxation response techniques as a start.

Mindfulness Meditation

Often recommended as an antidote to the stress and pain of chronic disease, mindfulness is a practice designed to focus one’s attention intensely on the moment, noting thoughts and feelings as they occur but refraining from judging or acting on them. I suggest starting with 5 minutes of Herbert Benson’s relaxation response techniques making it easier to get into the practice of devoting at least 20 minutes a day to this practice.


Imbibe in yourself the will to get better and be ready to invest a little time and effort. This can help build meaningful relationships. Having friends and other social connections is good for your health and wellbeing.
