Take Care Of Yourself, Part 5
You Can Do This
You have been through so many trials and tribulations. You have fantasied, dreamed, cried, screamed, you have felt every known negative emotion via your nervous system, and here you are…
Still walking, running, and standing in your territory, loving Yourself unconditionally.
Continue to take care of yourself first.
Your brain and mind are close knit partners.
The brain and body stand as physical elements forming functional organs upholding life.
Sensory-motor reflexes together with programmed movements, from basal ganglia, represent the majority of brain operational control
over body movement.
The superior advanced development of the cerebral cortex and thalamus has induced an emergent property of the active brain ”The Mind”.
The flowing out of the Mind from sensory inputs defines self with memories and emotions, stimulates cognition forming brackets of understanding, and makes decisions for initiating motor actions expressing behavior and speech content.
Serotonin and dopamine are important neurotransmitters in the brain.
It is a monoamine neurotransmitter derived from the amino acid tryptophan and is found in the enteric nervous system. It is also produced in the Central Nervous System. Additionally serotonin is stored in blood platelets and is released during agitation and vasoconstriction. It is thought to be a contributor to feelings of well being and happiness.
It belongs to the catecholamines and phenyl ethyl amine families and plays an important role in the brain and body. Inside the brain dopamine plays important roles in executive functions, motor control, motivation, arousal, reinforcement and reward. It appears to mediate desire and motivation more than pleasure.

You can do all things through the Creator of the Universe.
“If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever- the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you… John 14:15–18 (KJV)
The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I have said to you…Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid… John 14:26–27 (KJV)
Continue practicing and experiencing the actions below:
Plan your day. Schedule breaks each day instead of waiting for things to slow down. Your mind and body need ongoing rest.
Give generously. Thinking about others makes us feel less burdened. Do
something to make your spouse or a stranger smile.
Consider your purpose. Any task is more bearable when you remember the reasons behind it. Ask yourself what you like about your work.
Protect your career and take care of your health by giving yourself enough downtime to refresh and recharge. When a vacation is out of the question, treat yourself to some rest and relaxation wherever you find yourself.
