The Body-Mind Connection:
3 tools to harness its power (mindfulness, breath/deep inhale and smile)
Thoughts become words.
Feelings become actions.
Our thoughts can not only change our mental but also our physical wellbeing.
The other way around, actions and bodily sensations (in the form of touch) give us the ability to heat our bodies up and circulate love.
When we make use of simple practices, we will start to feel the abundance we carry within us.
