“In a way”, yes, but not as many as your mind dictates to your body.
Your Body Controls.
Your body can control your mind in the sense that what you eat, dictates how effective your mind works. This is also true when talking about things like sleep and physical exercise. All of these are activities engaging the body, but they allow your mind to work more effectively.
You are probably not surprised by the idea that someone who has a nutritious diet has their body operating at a higher potency? This is because your body breaks down the nutrients in food and converts it into energy. If you are eating empty calories, like candy, there is not many nutrients to break down. This results in your mind not being as sharp, even a bit sluggish.
How your body burns the energy it receives also effects the mind. If you are eating a lot of processed foods, your body must exert significantly more energy to break down the food than if you ate simple foods like fruits and vegetables. Your body operates like a battery. If its spends all of its time digesting food, that is less energy your mind can use to solve the worlds greatest problems.
Your Mind Controls.
Your mind impacts your body in so many ways. There arethat show your mind has the ability to mirror the effects of medicine in:
- IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME
- CHRONIC ARM PAIN
- ACUTE MIGRAINE HEADACHE
- OSTEOARTHRITIS OF THE KNEE
- CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN
There is actually an epidemic in the pain killer field where they cannot get past the clinical trials. People who are given pills filled with corn starch are showing similar pain relief as those who are receiving the actual medicine.
Your body matters, but your mind the key. If you keep your mind focused on where you want to be, your body will follow.
