The Results are in, your health success formula is…
Are you ready for a new way of thinking about health?
The body is an ecosystem. Every cell has its own unique function and purpose. When one part of this system breaks down, it can affect every other part of the system. The key to optimal health is balance and harmony between all parts of your body’s ecosystem – from your gut to your immune system, from your brain to your heart.
The psychosocial core physiological process involves the narrow focus of human thoughts, emotions, moods as well a wider connection to others, self -efficacy and the meaning and purpose of an individual’s life.
The mental, emotional and spiritual factors of human life have a profound impact on overall health and wellbeing. These factors influence behaviours, both protective and destructive.
Alterations in the psychosocial core process can be the result of chronic health conditions as well as contribute to them. It’s therefore important to nourish and fuel this process, deterring negative influences such as chronic stress.
What You Need to Know About the Psychosocial Process…
What It Means
The primary area of focus for the psychosocial core process involves mental, emotional and spiritual factors.
A sense of meaning and purpose can add up to seven extra years of life expectancy and are key attributes in the lives of people living in the Blue Zones. The Blue Zones are areas of the world with the healthiest, longest-living and happiest people on the planet.
3 Actions to Support Psychosocial Processes
Having friends, family, and companions in your life that you can reach out to when you’re most in need has an incredible buffering effect on the negative impacts of stress. So make a point of reaching out to a friend or family member today.
Get Enough Sleep
Good quality sleep is restorative and it’s the only time your body completely rejuvenates. Aim for 7-9 hours of high-quality sleep by setting a regular bedtime; to help with this try to go to bed an hour earlier.
Optimise Your Nutrition
Good nutrition is one of the first casualties of stressed-out humans. Coupled with nutritional deficiencies and blood sugar spikes, this will only add additional stress to the body. Where you can, focus on eating plant foods, lean proteins, and healthy fats to help your body in combating stress.
