Today we are going to speak about Mind Over Matter Health-wise, is this something you are familiar with?
Is it totally new and intriguing for you to learn more?
Let’s dive in and see how we feel at the end.
The Research Suggests
If, you can think positively about doing anything and you plan it out in advance then you are more likely to succeed.
For example if you wish to become fitter and you plan out a routine of daily and weekly exercise, then you are more likely to succeed than a person who doesn’t plan at all.
If, you decide to give up Alcohol and plan it out you will succeed easier.
If, you decide to give up smoking etc you get the idea.
This is what the research concludes, do we agree so far or do we need to know more?
I agree we need to delve deeper.
How we Feel
This is solely based on my own opinion-of what works for me, when looking at things in a positive way all the time I find the world is an easier place to live.
About 4 years ago I started to practice feeling grateful for everything. At night before I went to sleep I had a mantra I would repeat every night.
All the time I practiced these things they seem to go right for me 9 times out of 10. Then for a few months I stopped practicing and things started to go wrong and this affected my health among other things.
I soon got back on track and repeated the manta every night, since then I have not stopped and my life is on an even keel again. I also have started to say it during the day if I felt it was starting to go wrong.
I have also noticed that my Depression is something that has not come back at all and that is another reason to keep going.
What is the Mantra.
I thank the Universe or you can thank the Lord or who you wish to thank, I thank the universe for my wonderful Husband, for our Beautiful children, our Adorable Granchildren, the roof over our head, the jobs that pay for our holidays and the food on our table. Not necessarily in that order.
Some people find this an odd thing to do but it certainly works for me.
My Husband will start to say something and I stop him before he puts it out there. He laughs at me and tells me I’m daft.
Some believe and some don’t. He doesn’t but it does not stop me.
I certainly do believe and it makes me a more appreciative person, I pay it forward more and it comes back in spades.
Every body has many choices in life. If, you want to be healthy on the whole I believe the majority can achieve it.
It is a mind over matter choice.
Obviously I know there are terminally ill people who are not expected to make it, but sometimes they beat the odds and live, my belief is it’s all down to the mental attitude of the sufferor, if you give up its game over.
The more positive you are the more will go right for you in life including your health.
If, you Look around at people who are constantly negative and always moaning they never seem to enjoy very much about life at all which is very sad.
I know a lot of people like that and I strive not to be like them. I also try to change them in subtle ways.
Have you looked and spoken to people in their 80s and 90s they all seem to have a few things in common, an amazing sense of humor always laughing, very grateful to be alive and contributing to society, being a big part of the family, enjoying their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
People who are less happy still live to those ages but they get no enjoyment, I know which camp I want to belong to.
Health is Important
At the end of the day you’re health is very important. How you deal with it is down to you, yes you have certain medical conditions but so do others and they don’t let it control them and dictate their lives.
Don’t make excuses, make changes.
Try to always look on the positive side of life. You wake up every day so start off being grateful for that and expand it overtime you will see positive things happening in every aspect of your life. You will certainly feel happier if you let yourself.
I suffer from, fibromyalgia, depression, carpal tunnel, osteoarthritis and I have had 75% of my thyroid removed. These issues do not control me because I think positively and get on with my life. I could just sit back and let these conditions take over and make me very miserable and in a lot of pain.
I agree 100% with the research. Believe you can make a difference, plan how you will Achieve it and then put the steps in to action. What have you got to lose?
Your mind is yours to control however you see fit. It is possible to change if you want to.
This also includes your health. Try it you may be surprised at the outcome.
Make up your own mantra or copy mine. It works if you stick at it. Slowly to start with you will see things change but it gets better with time. Say it as many times in a day as you wish to.
Success in anything is down to you, nobody else can do it for you.
Believe in yourself.
