“To keep the body in good health is a duty… Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
– Buddha –

The next time you feel anguished ask yourself one question: Could what I’m feeling have a purely physical cause? Neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett’s research indicates that the mind-body connection is stronger than previously realized and that those feelings are often just your brain trying to “predict causes for those sensations.” So the next time your alarm starts banging and you wake up anxious, relax and self-assess because it may just be your mind playing tricks on you.
