At Be Well Lifestyle Centers, we firmly believe in the power of positive thinking. Your mind and body are connected, and therefore affect one another. Consequently, seeing the glass as half-full so to speak has health benefits as well. Here is how positive thinking improves your physical health.
Stress can cause many problems such as headaches, digestive issues, and overall poor physical health. However, positive thinking can soothe these issues. Positive thinking does not mean burying your head in the sand, or being in denial about stress. Instead, it acknowledges that stress and allows your brain to understand it is not the end of the world. This helps you find a way forward to deal with it. On the other hand, negative thinking causes you to think everything is ruined, there is no way out, and there is nothing you can do about it. It is easy to feel like your entire day is ruined if something goes wrong. However, positive thinking stops that self-fulfilling prophecy.
Better Immunity And Resistance To Sickness
Tired of catching a cold? Positive thinking can actually help with this. When your mind is in a positive state, your body functions at a higher level. Optimism helps keep away illnesses such as the common cold, and can even achieve better immunity for flu vaccines.
As we all know, depression is more than just a mental health issue. It can lead to physical issues as well. Common side effects of depression can lead to less exercise, eating less healthy, and other negative habits. However, positive thinking can help ward off depression and anxiety. One way to start practicing this is by identifying an area of life you want to change. Thinking of ways to approach it more positively can keep you from falling into depression over it. Secondly, practicing positive self-talk is great for this area. Being kind, patient, and encouraging with yourself is one of the most effective ways to practice positive thinking. Essentially, never say anything about yourself you would not say to anyone else!
Improves Overall Wellness
Most notably, positive thinking is actually linked to longer lifespans. Stress takes a toll on the body, and properly managing it has been shown to increase lifespans. Moreover, it reduces risks from things such as cardiovascular issues. How does this work? Essentially, positive thinking opens up the door to positive change, whereas negative thinking keeps it closed. The positive thinker sees a way forward, then puts it into practice to live a happier, healthier life.
