Food and Mood
How can CBT help with unhealthy eating and/ or exercise:
CBT is an evidenced based therapeutic intervention based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You are shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.
Whether you have unhealthy eating habits, low self-esteem, lack of motivation to exercise or turn to food due to emotional reasoning. Our programme can help you learn ways to challenge faulty thinking and learn alternative coping strategies to deal with these negative emotions also using the self-regulation model.
The Benefits of Exercise Psychologically:
Exercise has psychological benefits such as enhancing cognitive function, decreasing depression as well as improving body image. Including exercise into your routine has so many positive effects on your physical health as well as your mental health.
It allows us to become more alert meaning we become more productive in our life, have more energy, reduces our stress and anxieties and helps us feel more positive.
Not only this, including exercise into our routine will help us feel better physically which in turn boosts our self esteem, and gives us more confidence throughout life.
The Benefits of Complementary treatments:
A recent study estimated that 80 percent to 90 percent of illness is stress related. Massage brings physical changes in your body and can have a positive effect in many areas of life by increasing relaxation and decreasing anxiety. Massage lowers blood pressure increases circulation, improves recovery time from injury, helps you sleep better and can increase focus and concentration. It reduces fatigue and gives you energy, which helps you deal with stressful situations.
Massage increases levels of wellbeing but can also encourage integration of body and mind. When the body is relaxed it can produce a meditative state or heighten awareness of being in the moment, which can provide the client with a feeling of relaxation and peace, bringing with it spiritual and emotional balance.
Receiving regular bodywork and massage allows the treatments to build on each other. These treatments are especially effective for depression and anxiety, as they release endorphins like serotonin and dopamine and reduce stress hormone levels, which helps to improve and regulate mood. Bodywork can also help release emotional trauma that has been stored in the body as tension or dysfunction. Complementary therapies support the work of psychotherapy, mindfulness, and other treatments that work to heal emotional trauma and support an overall sense of well-being. Our bodies and minds are intrinsically connected to each other, which allows bodywork and massage to provide effective support for emotional health.
