The Mind Body Soul Connection

What is the Mind, Body, Soul connection? There is a connection we have to every aspect of ourselves; cognitively, physically, and emotionally. It is when we lose that connection, which is really our awareness and understanding of self, that problems can occur in our lives. Often, we are so busy "doing" that we forget about the "being." Learning how to have presence in our bodies and in our daily lives with mindfulness techniques can be life altering. Additionally, with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), you will learn that your immediate thoughts and core beliefs about self are either directly or indirectly connected to your actions. And, of course, the actions you choose have immediate and long-term impacts on your environment, your relationships, AND your body. Over the last decade, many research studies have shown the direct correlation of thought to a person's overall sense of wellbeing. Neuroplasticity, also called brain malleability, is the brain's ability to form and reorganize synaptic connections in response to learning; changes in the environment, or growth from injury. To therapists, this neuroplasticity of the brain means that clients can learn new patterns of thinking and new ways of behaving. By following the scientific adage about the brain, "what fires together, wires together," therapy can help you learn how to recognize triggering events for behaviors such as intense worry or obsession and addiction or isolation, and pair the trigger with a new thought and action. In time and with practice, the brain can "re-wire," and the unwanted behaviors will no longer be as automated. In summary, you can teach an old brain new tricks!
