"I've been feeling down lately", reports patient X. "Its becoming harder to get out bed, I'm irritated by everyone around me, and I can't get a grasp on these negative thoughts. I know its all in my head, but...".
More often than not, the way we feel easily becomes isolated to a psychological state. Depressed or anxious feelings = a mental condition, even though the symptoms can often be very physical. But what if I were to tell you that thats not the whole story, and that evidence suggests otherwise?
We know that our hormones (and feelings, for that matter) are continuously creating a series of beautifully coordinated chemical reactions with the intent of communication within the body. And while these chemical reactions may produce very metaphysical feelings, I assure you, the process is very physical. Therefore, the way you feel isn't just all in your head, and believe it or not, theres a lot you can physically do to change it.
If you've yet to come across the lists of "quick" tips to attaining goals that seem to be circulating the interweb these days, then you're probably bound to soon. It seems as though every goal or desire that may have once seemed dauntingly unachievable now has an article with a step-by-step process on how to reach it quickly or easily. And of course, we can't help but think as we frantically scroll down the page, "fantastic, they've found me a solution". Unfortunately, it couldn't be further from the truth.
