Overcome Negativity and Experience a Life of Abundance
Life events, whether they’re positive or negative, can affect your health in numerous ways. If you’ve ever looked at others in envy and thought, “why not me,” the answer may be in your mindset.
The Mind/Body Connection
Trying to figure out whether your state of health affects your emotions or vice versa is a little like trying to answer the age-old riddle about the chicken and the egg. Research has proven that a positive attitude is reflected in your health. Mindset is not everything but it can make a significant difference in how you are able to deal with chronic or terminal health problems. The ability to overcome such problems is intricately tied to your ability to use the power of positivity and your mind. It’s also true that those who allow pain or stress to rule their life also seem mired in negativity.
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take health problems or stressful events seriously. However, those who learn to master their emotions, practice positivity and gratitude are more likely to be able to find success in their endeavors. It can even help you respond more favorably to treatment and bounce back faster from adversity if you think positively.
Empowerment Is in the Mind of the Beholder
Changing a mindset isn’t easy, it requires consistent effort and conscious decisions. Start by practicing gratitude every day. Even if you don’t have your ideal life, you absolutely have things you can be grateful for. Start each morning by writing down three things that are good in your life, even if it’s just a sunny day after weeks of rain. I bet there are more positive things going on around you than you realize.
Positivity doesn’t mean ignoring bad things or negative emotions. It means acknowledging that they exist and learning to let that feeling go. If something gets you down, write down what is going on and how it makes you feel. Then, let it go. It’s difficult at first, but it becomes second nature with consistent application.
You Don’t Have to Do It Alone
