How Does The Power of Positive Thinking Affect Your Health?

the power of positive thinkingHave you noticed how some adults stay young and active while others age more rapidly and experience many more health challenges?  The power of positive thinking plays a significant role.

The group that stays young is focusing on being happy, enjoying life, feeling valuable, as well as seeing a future for themselves.  The other group is focusing on all of their aches and pains, all of the challenges of life, feeling hopeless, and not seeing much of a future for themselves.

You have domain over your mind, or at least hopefully you do most of the time!  What this means is you have choice over where you focus.  So focus your mind on the positive, on what brings you joy and fulfillment, and on how you can make a difference in the lives of others. 

Notice how this affects your overall well-being and energy, as well as how you feel about yourself

The mind is the most powerful part of the human body and has all kinds of invisible powers.  One of the most amazing of these is the power to heal.

It is your mind that creates your attitude.  By harnessing your mind to focus only on the positive, you will at a minimum bring ease and relief, and create a happier life for yourself.  And you may even bring about actual healing.  There are countless stories of people who, because of their positive attitude and strong resolve, have beaten the odds.

How does the power of positive thinking affect your health?

Another powerful aspect of this is that you can use the power of positive thinking to not only impact your health, but to also seek out ways to make a difference in the lives of others.

Some simple things you can do that will surely light people up are:

  • See the best in your children, and tell them regularly, so they see it too.
  • Create “Taco Friday” once a month at work and treat everyone in your office.
  • Be the one to bring people together, your family or your neighbors, and invite them to a weekend barbeque.

By seeking out ways to make a difference, whatever you’re going through will shrink in direct proportion to how focused you are on the lives of others. 

Look at the amazing work that Christopher Reeve did with and for people with disabilities.  And the awareness that Michael J. Fox has brought to the community dealing with Parkinson’s disease and how tirelessly he strives to find a cure.  

The connection between mind and body is now mainstream in medicine.  It is now commonly accepted that the mind plays a huge role in impacting you, either positively or negatively, depending on where you’re focusing.  

The key is to start noticing.  If you notice yourself focusing on the negative, on all of the problems, challenges, and struggles, try on focusing your mind on what blessings are ALSO present in your life.

Perhaps this will force you to slow down and appreciate the small and sometimes ‘invisible’ things in life.  Now you will notice the sunshine, the blue sky, and the birds outside your window.  The positive and the blessings are always there for the noticing.  All it takes is seeing them.  

As you focus on the power of positive thinking, notice how it impacts your energy, your sense of well-being, and your connection with others and the world around you.  

When you are living the power of positive thinking, no matter what your age, you can transform your life, as well as those around you.  Ignite Your Life!  How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be is a powerful companion to help you truly light up your life and become a beacon in the world.  Click HERE or click the Buy The Book NOW! link on this site to get your copy today.
