When we think about reaching optimal levels of health, we’re often so general about what this looks like. If you’re someone that’s always put focus on dieting or trying to commit to a workout schedule as your way of being healthy, then you’re not alone. And you’re not wrong. But it’s safe to say that this isn’t going to be the only way to start to take care of yourself. Because a lot of the time, your health is so much more complex than this. For starters, make sure that you can heal. If you know that you’re not feeling your best, focusing on changing that will help the most. So, how can you help yourself to heal?

Process Your Emotions

First of all, learn how to process your emotions. Even if you don’t think that you’re someone that suffers emotionally, you may be. If you tend to let everything build up or ignore your emotions, then you’re going to be doing a lot of damage to your mind and your general health. Instead, acknowledge your emotions; accept and work with those feelings. Blocking them out means you’ll take longer to reach a healthier position.


From here, ensure that you establish a healthy sleep pattern. Our bodies naturally heal while asleep. While this is automatic on a physical level, especially with something like the lucid dreaming guide, it can occur on an emotional and mental level too. If you’re mentally exhausted or not at ease, your mind can heal and get answers when you sleep. So, establish healthy sleep patterns to help your mind and body do this.

Start Talking

Having unresolved issues in your mind or something troubling you? Then you need to learn to let it all out. When you talk about your problems, you can be in a much better position mentally. This is often what will allow you to get stronger emotionally too.

Take Care Of Your Body

Of course, our mind and bodies are connected. Therefore, if you start to take better care of your body, you’re going to help your mind heal too. Yes, eating well and committing to exercise can help you here, but it’s not the only things that you need to do. Make sure that you relax and look after your skin and overall appearance. You should find that your body will start to heal, as well as your mind.

Set Goals

And finally, setting goals can help you too. If you know that you need to make a change in your life, you often need to give yourself a direction. By setting goals that make you happy, you should find that you can heal your mind and move forward in a much more positive direction.

  1. A fantastic post and could easily be taken from my own healing actions in processing my past, present and future self. Harmoni

  2. My favorite in this area is to remember to learn how to breathe. I used to think my therapist was kind of annoying for saying that all the time and signing her emails that way too. That is until I started to remember her words when I would be all distraught, and lo and behold, remembering to breathe can really help!

  3. Great reminders, Christy! It is so easy to forget to tend to our emotional health when we are busy or stressed, or simply focused on physical fitness. Thanks for the heads up!

  4. Well, Christy, it’s sad to say there is a new healing needed today, in Toronto and Canada. As Canadians, we need to process and heal from the hideous ordeal of a van killing 9 and injuring 16. Processing our emotions, and talking are a great start. Listening to & loving those traumatized could be added to the very particular healing list that I speak of! Solidarity!

  5. This is a wonderful post. I often write about fractured people in my poetry. I do think that we are all broken, in our own way. Self healing is an essential part of life for us to grow and evolve.
