Self Healing – Taking Care of Yourself

Healing from trauma requires time. It takes practice to get comfortable with sitting with a range of emotions and letting them pass.

Avoidance is a normal part of the process, but over time avoidance can prolong stress and prevent healing. Be patient and prioritize self care.

Older adults in our study identified four main themes related to self healing. They emphasized the importance of physiology (exercise, healthy eating and sleeping habits) as well as psychology and interpersonal relations.

1. Exercise

Exercise is one of the best things you can do to heal your body. It helps your heart, strengthens your lungs and immune system, reduces your risk of cancer and other chronic diseases, and even heals wounds more quickly.

Self-healing network functionality enables IT teams to identify and fix issues before they impact business operations by collecting and analyzing network usage and performance data. The network then applies AI to automatically correct any potential problems and protect against future outages.

The self-healing concept describes an innate process of the body and mind that promotes body networks to return to equilibrium, helping relieve pain triggers. It may be regulated and optimized by the use of multimodal integrative therapies. These include therapeutic massage, passive movement, breathing and visualization training.

2. Eat Right

What you eat plays an important role in self healing. A diet full of processed foods, sugary drinks and refined grains can increase inflammation and zap energy levels. Filling up on a healing foods diet rich in fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and whole grains can help keep you feeling your best.

Try adding greens to smoothies, topping cooked cereal with berries and bananas or mixing up soups with herbs like basil, garlic, oregano and rosemary. Make sure to include some dairy in your diet — the calcium, vitamin D and protein it contains is essential for bone health. Aim for three servings of milk, yogurt or cheese per day. You can also incorporate dairy into smoothies, shakes or cooked cereals. It’s easy to get the nutrients you need when following the right eating plan.

3. Sleep

Getting enough sleep is an essential part of self healing. Sleep is critical for the immune system, memory consolidation and mental clarity. It also helps to metabolize stress and keep us healthy.

During sleep, the body powers down and most organ systems become less active. This allows the brain to recharge, while cells throughout the body stockpile resources and repair damage.

The last stage of sleep is when the most physical recovery occurs. Grandner likens it to “power washing a driveway and then re-sealing it” – clearing away cellular debris and protein buildup, which can cause inflammation. It also reorganizes memories and learned information, much like a librarian sorting and cataloging books. Sleep is a complex process that can be hard to understand. There is an entire field of medicine devoted to sleep, and modern medicine’s understanding of it is still a jigsaw puzzle.

5. Take Care of Yourself

Taking care of yourself is more than just eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep. It’s also important to have positive social connections, learn self-care practices that reduce stress and anxiety, and practice emotional balance. Self-care can also enhance productivity, increase relationships, and improve mental health.

Inner wounds can affect a person’s mental health and make them difficult to get along with others. When these wounds are buried for long periods of time, they can cause people to lack empathy and be more selfish.

It’s important to check in with yourself periodically to see how your self-healing is progressing. If you’re finding that you need more help, don’t hesitate to reach out. You deserve to feel healthy! So, start healing yourself today. Start by incorporating some of the tips above into your daily life.
