DENVER, CO, October 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Long ago, Dr. Tae Yun Kim became aware of how physical activity and working the body correlated with a positive mindset. Despite the adversity she faced as a girl in South Korea, she convinced her uncle to teach her Tae Kwon Do - a male only discipline that her uncle believed she would soon become discouraged by and quit. However, Dr. Tae Yun Kim's depth of understanding and appreciation of the sport's physical and mental benefits was phenomenally deep.
When Dr. Tae Yun Kim
moved to the United States, she became aware of the lack of balance in people's lives. Focus on one area led to unhappiness despite wealth and material gain. Dr. Tae Yun Kim never lost sight of the importance of balance and physical activity despite becoming an entrepreneur and CEO of an international company in the 1980s.
Dr. Tae Yun Kim developed Jung SuWon which unites body, mind, and spirit. "It is a physical activity that includes spiritual principles and practices. You learn to feel safe, secure, communicate better, and lose weight while gaining self-esteem," says Dr. Tae Yun Kim
. The self-esteem and positive characteristics are built by the focus on self and working hard physically.
Many parents sign their children up for martial arts so they can exercise and enjoy recreation outside of school. In an article of Huffington Post, there are thirteen identified benefits of exercise not limited to weight loss. The mental benefits include: reduced stress, a release of endorphins, self-confidence, time outdoors, preventing cognitive decline, alleviate anxiety, boost brainpower, sharpen memory, control addiction, relaxation, productivity, creativity, and inspiration.
Many of these areas are taught by Dr. Tae Yun Kim herself as a way of understanding the inner self which she calls the "silent master." Understanding the self is a part of staying balanced which in turn is benefited by eating healthy to maintain a positive energy. Again, Dr. Tae Yun Kim
encourages people to work their body and even meditate.
Many people find motivation in the teachings of Dr. Tae Yun Kim. As a martial artist, developing the body and mind is critical. The link between mind and body is essential to creating positive energy. In the University of Oxford's Practical Ethics: "Exercise can help people to recover from depression and anxiety disorders. However, not all people like exercise and a mental disorder like depression can additionally decrease motivation for physical activity. So the disorder itself might inhibit the behavior that helps to overcome it."
Dr. Tae Yun Kim doesn't speak much about mental disorders, but does talk about change and recognizing thoughts. She often teaches that your thoughts become your reality. Dr. Tae Yun Kim
encourages spending time outdoors and even this lesson is supported by others. The New York Times published in 2013 that in regards to exercising outside: "Volunteers reported enjoying the outside activity more and, on subsequent psychological tests, scored significantly higher on measures of vitality, enthusiasm, pleasure and self-esteem and lower on tension, depression and fatigue after they walked outside."About: Dr. Tae Yun Kim
