Hello and welcome to our latest blog which continues to look at ways to create states of wellbeing.
Focusing on the positives rather than the negatives in our lives makes a real difference to how we feel on a day-to-day basis. It motivates us, enables us to feel inspired, brings hope, nurtures healthy self-esteem, builds self-confidence and makes us happy. Its effects are far reaching: research in Psychoneuroimmunology shows that positive thinkers have a healthier immune response and are less likely to catch things like the common cold or die of heart disease.
Being thankful for the positives in our life may sound old fashioned, as we increasingly take rising standards in living, health and education for granted. Yet, practicing ‘thankfulness’ on a regular basis serves an important purpose as it keeps us in touch with what nourishes, fullfills and sustains us. And, each time we bring to mind these positives aspects of our lives we gain some of their benefits as feel- good hormones flood our systems in response to our thoughts.
Spending a few moments during meditation or times of reflection to put thanks ‘out there’ to the universe, God, nature, life, (whatever we feel most comfortable with) helps keep us on track with the fundamental things that really matter and reminds us of what we have rather than what we don’t have.
