Body Scan and The Mind-Body System

This Mind-Body System is far from simple, but for our purposes, what’s most important is that there are three different inputs under your control that result in a given behavior: physiology, emotions and thoughts.

You can control your thoughts and emotions by changing your physiology through exercise, breathing techniques or any other type of physical training. As a study on self-regulation concluded: “One's ability to self-regulate the quality of feeling and emotion of one's moment-to-moment experience is intimately tied to our physiology… Without establishing a new baseline reference, people are at risk of getting ‘stuck’ in familiar, yet unhealthy emotional and behavioral patterns and living their lives through the automatic filters of past familiar or traumatic experience.” To change your mind, to get “unstuck” from negative mental patterns, you can begin by changing your physiology.

Conversely, you can control your physiology by changing how you relate to your thoughts and emotions through meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, or any other type of mental training.
