What is Cognitive Emotional Active Program?
Cognitive Emotional Active Program (CEAP) is a multi-level behavioral and exercise program designed to help clients reduce or eliminate mental disorders and roadblocks in combination of proper cardio and strength exercises.
CEAP is designed to help individuals gain awareness on how the body, brain and mind function together as one entity. The crux of the CEAP is based on how thoughts and emotions dictate behaviors.
Another major component of the program is proper exercise. Movement in the form of proper cardio and strength exercise is key on emotional stability.
Some individuals benefit more from increased fitness and weight loss, as opposed to cognitive behavioral transformations. Conversely, many clients would benefit more from emotional help than fitness and weight loss. However, the majority the clients would benefit from both emotional assistance and guided exercise – the two key components of the CEAP program.
A program that is not just for adults, CEAP is also designed to help children and teenagers become aware of their emotions and support a healthy body image. CEAP assists younger individuals in learning how fitness can influence how they feel and act.
CEAP also assists individuals who struggle with emotional eating. Individuals who eating in excess and suffer from “yo-yo” weight loss (rapidly losing weight only to gain it back) greatly benefit from this program. CEAP creates an emotional balance that assists individuals in eating well and achieving proper nutrition.
As human beings, everything we do stems from the function of our thoughts –namely, how the brain process each specific thought or idea.
Everyone sees the same environment in different light. Our memory response connects with how we feel at any moment within the decision-making process, having a direct effect on our actions.
The degree of our emotions and environmental factors are very powerful. Surprisingly, most people are not aware of the extent to which our emotions and environment affect us.
Our Results speak for itself
For instance, someone makes the decision to lose thirty pounds and get in shape. Generally, such a decision stems from the desire to lose weight, look good, and be healthier. While rational, these reason are mediocre and will most likely not lead to the intended goal (in this case, losing thirty pounds and getting fit).
When an individual makes a decision to lose thirty pounds, his or her amygdala (the part of the brain that processes emotions, which is at the heart of human emotions) becomes activated. If the goal of losing thirty pounds is extremely important to an individual, it will not only make that person look and feel great, but it will also create a better internal health for your organs, thus having direct affect on the quality of that person’s life.
The amygdala also generates intensity in regards to emotions. A powerful idea or goal activates many parts of the brain, including nucleus accumbens, hippocampus, frontal cortex, and basal ganglia. Collectively, each brain region will create different neurotransmitters, including serotonin, adrenaline, norepinephrine, dopamine and glutamate. These neurotransmitters will create a strong chemical response that, combined, create emotions.
No matter what the goals are, a strong emotional response will create the desired outcome. Through understanding what one wants to accomplish at cellular level, an individual will gain the ability to force an additional emotional response. Combined with strength and cardio training, and individual will gain energy and drive to accomplish his or her weight loss and health goals.
An awareness of one’s of mind and the internal processes determine how an individual thinks and processes information, alongside proper physical exercise, is the key to healthier body and mind. It well-documented that physical exercise is good for the body. However, it is a little known fact that physical exercise does more for the brain then it does for the body.
Thought, feelings, and memory are the couriers of basic humanity. They are at the core of our ever-changing states of mind in respect to time and space. Moreover they are define each individual’s character, as well as how each individual and how identifies him or herself. From thoughts, feelings, and memory, we as people gain our motivation, resolve, and reason, and merge the collected understandings of our lives into consistent and unique individuals.
Brain diseases such as depression, dementia, and Alzheimer’s, are becoming increasingly more common. Scientific research has proven the extent to which genes play a critical role in the health of the mind. The quality of the connections between our brain cells directly influence our emotions, thoughts, and our perceptions of ourselves and the environment. While it is impossible to change the configurations of the brain, it is possible generate change at cellular level though neuroplasticity. Namely, it is possible to reverse the effects that stress, anxiety and depression have on the brain, and consequently, on our emotions.
