Swellness: Mental Health can lead to Physical Well-Being!

Building emotional strength without drugs is the most rewarding and enduring way to deal with difficult feelings. Like body-building, building emotional strength requires dedication and perseverance. We must accept that this type of deep power can only be built in small increments; little by little, day by day. There are no shortcuts to discipline!

Things that last take time to build. One of the hardest parts is that we do much of this work on our own, away from others, unlike muscle-building that can occur with friends, families and even people we don’t know.

From The Chopra Center website: Meditation can remove stress and replace it with a dose of inner peace. It’s one of

the best tools we have to balance our emotions, deal with physical and psychological distress, and promote the peace

of the present moment. But it can be tough to meditate without a teacher or guide.

Enter guided meditations. Meditating on your own requires some effort, while guided meditations literally walk you

through a meditation and help you find a calm and peaceful state—one step at a time. Try one of these guided

meditations, each with a unique theme. Meditations below range from five minutes to one hour.
