Body Scan B

Body Scan B is part of the FitMind Meditation Program. It is designed to help you feel and bring awareness to the myriad of sensations throughout your body.

Body Scan B and Movement

The mind-body connection runs deep. Since your brain is in fact just a giant command center for your nervous system, and your nervous system is linked to the whole body, how you move directly affects your mind. The Romans had a phrase for this: mens sana in corpus sano (a sound mind in a sound body).

Your brain loves rewarding you for exercise, sending bursts of adrenaline, endorphins, and other “happiness chemicals” when you run, lift, jump and dance. Exercise increases what’s called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein responsible for growing and maintaining neurons, i.e., neuroplasticity. Furthermore, it has been shown to decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and depression.
