Dr. Oz: Just For Kids
Mental Resilience There is an interdependent relationship between mental and physical health. No matter how great you look on the outside, if you are emotionally unhappy, you won't be happy with what you see or how you feel. That's why you have to take time during the day to center yourself and relax, whether through meditation or breathing exercises, or by finding an activity that gives you purpose and makes you feel part of a community. Once you do start feeling and seeing the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle, this success should boost your confidence and make you feel even more committed to staying on track.
Succeeding at the rewarding task of getting healthy is a wonderful way to start feeling empowered to set other long-term goals, such as promoting awareness of health and health issues among your friends. It will also help make all of us mentally tougher to deal with the challenges of life as our generation inherits the planet.
