You feed your physical body with “good food”.
You feed your car with “good fuel”.
So why not feed your mind with “good thoughts” as well?
Psychology research in the 1950s first found that people who have a positive mindset achieve better physical and mental health.
A positive mindset also increases longevity, and promotes success in both personal and professional life.
See “the bright side”
Positive thinking and the concept of “optimism” are closely related.
A person who sees the world in a positive light will feel both mentally and physically healthier than one who thinks negatively.
Positive thinking is not a new concept.
Positive thinking is a therapeutic method based on autosuggestion.
By repeating positive messages twenty times a day, the individual is supposed to achieve well-being and optimal health.
Always look on the “bright side” of every situation.
Always look for the best in every individual you meet.
Keep praising yourself for the thing you do well.
Keep reminding yourself of your positive attributes.
Enjoy Better Health
Thoughts can act directly on the physical wellbeing of the body.
People who think negative thoughts suffer more from depression and anxiety.
Positive thinking can help to overcome sleep disturbances, muscle tension, anxiety, and fatigue.
When you replace negative thoughts with calm, confidence, and peace, you feel good.
Optimism Prevents Stress
Many entrepreneurs already believe in the power of positive thinking and integrate it into their business.
Notice the growing market for Well-being seminars, Relaxation coaches, and specialised psychologists.
As these professionals have proven, the benefits of positive thinking can be quite amazing.
One of the major benefits of a positive mindset is that it protects against the harmful effects of stress.
Thinking positively helps to regulate the consequences of stress and avoid the feeling of overwhelm.
You learn to know yourself better.
You learn to appreciate your resources and focus them on the tasks that you want to achieve.
In short, we learn to be more efficient and above all, we know how to say “stop” when necessary.
More Favourable Living Environment
A positive attitude can also influence the way you conduct your life.
This, in turn, has an effect on your health.
As an example:
When someone is going through a particularly stressful time, they will be less likely to pay attention to their diet, exercise and sleep.
They will be more likely to compensate for the stress by drinking alcohol or snacking on junk food.
These lifestyle elements are also risk factors for cancer and other diseases.
A positive mental attitude will help suppress those negative behaviours which arise from stress.
Positive People Live Longer
Optimists live longer and healthier lives.
Countless studies prove it.
A Boston University School of Medicine longevity study found that those who lived the longest were also the most optimistic.
In fact those with a positive mindset lived an average of 10 years longer.
Optimists also enjoy better health throughout their life.
When sick or injured, the power of positivity helps with healing.
Positive thinking has a positive effect on the survival of sick people as well as that of healthy people.
Keeping a positive mindset predisposes to behavior that is also more “positive” for physical health.
Indeed, studies show that a positive frame of mind leads to more virtuous behaviours.
Of course, we don’t get sick just because of stress, our emotions or our thoughts.
But, it scientists have proof that our thoughts and behaviours affect many symptoms and diseases.
The Power of Positive Thought
Thoughts are of great power.
Thoughts have always shaped our lives.
Think positively, and expect favourable results.
Your situation and circumstances will change accordingly!
