But here's an interesting question: if the mind-body connection is so strong, and the mind can so easily change the body, wouldn't the reverse be true? Can the body change the mind? That is, can we use the body as a tool to change our thoughts and feelings? According to social psychologist, Amy Cuddy, the answer is yes.
Have you ever thought about the connection between the breath, the mind, and the body? We often hear about the connection between the mind and the body, but rarely do we hear about the connection between the breath and the mind/body complex. For centuries, meditation masters have taught us that there is in fact a very close connection between the way we breathe and the states of our minds and the conditions of our bodies.
