    Discover the link between physical and mental health

    Achieving wellness in life depends on supporting your physical and mental health. Learn here the best apps to balance body and mind.

    Having a healthy body and a happy life is only possible if we protect our well-being by integrating our body’s physical and mental health. The World Health Organization (WHO) stresses the need to strike a balance between these components, stating that “there is no health without mental health”.

    If you are looking for ways to set up a routine that will help you take care of your body and mind, in this article you will learn about some of the best apps to ensure exercise and mediation wherever you may be.

    The link between physical and mental health

    Experts believe we cannot distinguish between physical and mental health if we are to enjoy overall well-being. Both are parts of a whole that can mutually affect each other. 

    For example, stress and anxiety have been linked to inflammatory processes due to the alterations they produce in the bloodstream and nervous system. Similarly, a person living with physical discomfort is more likely to be prone to irritability and have difficulty maintaining personal relationships.

    And there are many other problems that stem from a poor relationship between physical and mental health. Here are the best health apps to start you on the path to complete well-being today.
