The Mind-body Connection: How Emotions Effect Your Wellbeing

The mind-body connection recognises that your thoughts and emotions don’t only exist in the mind, they are in your body. They are actual physical feelings. You might have heard people say “I have butterflies in my stomach” before a first date or job interview.
