In one of my previous articles, I talked about understanding health from a new paradigm. We are more than a physical body. We have an emotional body; it consists of all of our emotions. We have a mental body; it consists of all of our thoughts. We have a spiritual body; it consists of all the values we live by. All these bodies are integrated and affect each other. To enjoy great health, we have to take care of all of our bodies' stress.

To let go of Stress and Anxiety, we will first look at what factors create stress and anxiety in each of the bodies. Then we will look at solutions to reduce stress and anxiety. Ideally, it is great to learn some energy healing tools and techniques from a holistic therapist like myself.

1. Physical Body:

a. Factors: Stress can be produced by toxins, pesticides, allergies, junk food, sugary juices, lack of exercise, environmental energies, electro-magnetic radiations from the electronics.

b. Solution: Eat organic food, drink good quality water (70% of your body is water), pay attention to how your body reacts to foods, drinks. One food fit all is wrong. According to the ancient practice of Ayurveda, we all have different body types. What may be good for one person may be poison for another. There are crystals and other devices available to reduce EM radiations. Put those next to your computer when working on it. Take breaks from electronic devices often. Go walk in nature, eat healthy, do fun exercises so you don’t get bored. Hiking, gardening, playing with kids, playing sports, are fun ways to get exercise.

2. Emotional/Mental Bodies. Since emotions and thoughts are tightly bound, we will address them together:

a. Factors: Negative experiences are loaded with negative thoughts and emotions. There can be stress/anxiety around relationships, finances, working environment, negative thinking, surrounded by negative people, collective negativity. If you are an empath, then you are soaking up negativity from others rapidly. Attachments are another way to soak in negativity from people you are attached to., Burying negative emotions and thoughts does not mean they disappear. Every thought, every emotion continues lying in your energy field creating chronic stress.

b. Solution: First, change your belief and accept that your emotions and thoughts matter. They affect your health every moment whether you recollect them or not. Grounding is an excellent way for reducing stress for all of the bodies. Walking barefoot where possible, touching big trees for 15 minutes or more, forest baths (listening to sounds of nature). Walk away from emotional dramas. You cannot rationalize emotions and thoughts so don’t waste time trying to do that. Either learn some energy healing. I teach simple tools and techniques to my client. Life coaching is very important as you may be living your life with limiting beliefs which creates subconscious stress and affects actions you take.

3. Spiritual body: The spiritual body consists of all the values by which you live your life.

a. Factors: Lying, dishonestly, unethical behaviors, deceit, cheating are some ways in which stress is created in the spiritual body. A part of you is divine so anything you do which is against the divine nature of your being will produce stress and anxiety. It is difficult to have strong values when we are holding stress in our emotional and mental bodies. Example, if you are holding feelings of low self-esteem, you may have a tough time being honest with people during communication.

b. Solution: Have strong values. Identify your core values and make a conscious effort to align your words and actions with these values.

In short, to reduce stress and anxiety we should have positive thoughts, balanced emotions, strong values and healthy eating/drinking habits. This is a holistic approach to life and health. If the emotional and mental bodies are heavy, it will take a lot of willpower to eat healthy. Like energy attracts like energy in the world of energy. Negative emotions/thoughts are lower vibrational energies. They will attract junk food which also has lower vibrational energy. Explains why people struggle with diets. Take baby steps, aim for 1% improvement every day. Review your day at night to see what you did to take care of each of the bodies.
