Keeping your mind in sync with your body and keeping them both sharp is something that we often neglect to do in the 21st century. We lead busy lifestyles in the modern world; full-time jobs, children and other things take up the majority of our time, which can leave us feeling emotionally and physically spent. However, it doesn’t have to be this way! There are a few things that you can do to sharpen your mind and your body, so carry on reading to find them out.
Wellb-eing clinics are new but also incredibly old too. Mind clearing processes and body relaxation techniques have been around for thousands of years, however they’ve only just became available to the wider world.
Companies like the Mountain Top clinic offer incredible services to get your mind and body working together well again, as well as honing them to be as sharp as you need them to be. They provide the break that your body needs to be well again, so it’s definitely worth looking at.
Chances are you will have heard of Tai Chi, but what actually is it? Well, Tai Chi is an old traditional Chinese martial art that was originally intended for self defense, however over the years it has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that incorporates many valuable philosophies and lessons for the student. You can teach yourself some Tai Chi yourself at home in your back garden.
Alternatively, going to see an instructor and being part of a class pushes your body and brain that bit further so you can get more out of your training. Tai Chi is also brilliant for curing any muscle related pains that you might have because of the stretching and muscle use that is involved, so don’t worry if you think you’re not up to it because it’s for all levels!
This is a huge departure from the other two things that have been talked about here, but they still serve the same purpose. Extreme sports such as paintball sharpen your mind and body in a fantastic way.
You’re going to have to use your body to roll, dive and run around depending on what you’re doing, and in the example of paintball you’re going to have to actively use your mind to shoot other players out! This requires a combination of knowledge, skill, courage and fitness.
All of these things go towards honing your body and mind. All of that while doing fun and exciting sports. So, if you’re looking for something that is the opposite of calm, this one is definitely for you!
Doing any one of these things is going to benefit your body and mind. Why not visit a wellbeing clinic for a week or two in order to clear your mind, maybe even try out Tai Chi for some regular applied exercise, or you could take the plunge and try out an extreme sport which will train you and test you. The choice is yours!

Mom my has done Tai Chi for years and years. Maybe it’s time for me to give it a go.

OUTSTANDING! Inspiration is one thing and you can’t control it, but hard work is what keeps the ship moving. Good luck means, work hard. Keep up the good work. Couldn’t have done it better myself.
Mental preparation with visualization allows the mind to conquer the outcome before you deploy for the mission. Whether it’s at your daily job, paintball or your next job interview.
Important keys to mental toughness. Sharpen and Train…
Visualization is a powerful technique ~ well expressed!

This is the first time I’ve heard to well-being clinics. Sounds really great!
How wonderful that the post is educational for you!
“Realistic Change” is the first concept people need to recognize before LONG TERM improvement is witnessed. We have tendencies to make unrealistic changes that transition into old patterns of behavior that result in deficient health outcomes. People need to recognize change as a “journey process” rather than a “one time” application.
Excellent advice, Dr. Jonathan!
Tai chi seems interesting🙂 Thanks for sharing🤗
