Power of the Mind

Power of the Mind


Whole Health includes all of you — your mind and your body. Your mind affects your body, and your body affects your mind, perhaps more than we realize. This relationship between our mind and body can improve our health or make it worse. Mood and thinking patterns can either positively or negatively impact our health and well-being. In this way, the mind has great power. Research has found mind-body approaches, such as relaxation, breathing, or guided imagery can help treat many health conditions.

The resources offered here will help you learn about the role the power of the mind can play in improving your health and well-being.
