The Power of a Positive Mind

July 11, 2019

Have you ever woken up with a bad start to your day? Maybe you overslept, maybe you are stuck in traffic and are late for an appointment. Sometimes, we let a "bad start" affect our whole mindset for the day.

I feel that sometimes, we allow negative thoughts and energies to take over our whole outlook. We start to look at things that happen to us and think "why me?" or "what did I do to deserve this?" 

My advice to you is to stop, take a deep breathe, and let that moment pass.  You should never let a mishap ruin your mood.

The same thing should apply to your everyday health.  Start each day with a moment of gratitude. Think about all the things you are thankful and appreciative for. When you go about your day, remind yourself of these things. Think positive thoughts, often. 

At the end of each day, reflect on how you handled certain situations. Think about what you can do to change any negativity you felt. End each day by having a moment of gratitude. Think about the good parts of the day, and remember how they made you feel. Channel that energy with you, and let it carry into the next day.

Practice this mindset everyday, and notice how slowly but surely your new found positive attitude will change your whole mindset. Yes, melatonin may help you sleep, and vitamin D will help strengthen your bones, but a positive mindset can sometime be the most powerful tool we have. 

And remember, every passing moment is another chance to turn it all around. 

“Watch your thoughts; for they become words. Watch your words; for they become actions. Watch your actions; for they become habits. Watch your habits; for they become character. Watch your character for it will become your destiny. ”
