Is Your Health Impacted By Thinking Positively?

September 25, 2013

Even though positive thinking has been promoted for many years as good for our mental performance, recent research has observed a connection between the quality of our thoughts and the state of our physical health. It is usual to hear conversations in which people complain of their physical ailments, sometimes again and again. How many times have you heard an individual complain that they used to be able to do something effortlessly, and now they are unable to find the energy? What makes the difference between people who seem to constantly center their attention on what’s not going right, and people who manage to find something good to mention? Below we’ll talk about a few situations in which positive thinking has been found to improve health.

The most obvious way that your mind could be the cause of a problem is your mental health, and in particular the areas of stress and depression. There is evidence that depression can typically have physical causes but in numerous instances, it will result from your attitude to life and specific events. In order for psychological therapies to work, they should deal with both the conscious and unconscious minds. Rational therapy, which depends on the conscious mind, is usually effective in pointing out that almost all of our stressful thoughts don’t take place. Many of our deepest beliefs and habits are controlled by our subconscious mind, and changing these needs more than rational thinking. Visualization and hypnosis can be really effective in altering beliefs and, if you do this, the long-term effects can be more powerful than using logic alone.

The placebo effect, which has been scientifically documented numerous times, illustrates conclusively that thoughts and beliefs affect the physical body in extremely powerful ways. A placebo is a substance without therapeutic ingredients, which is passed of as a treatment protocol to a research subject. The belief in the ptency of the placebo demonstrates how the mind affects the body, and this power can be utilized to help individuals recover from sicknesses more rapidly. You can also direct the power of your mind to assist you in attaining your fitness goals. A historic example of this is when the four minute barrier for running the mile was broken, which had been viewed as unachievable until that day. However, following this event, many athletes began to also run the mile under four minutes.

Let’s look at another example of how positive thinking influences the aging process. Once more, the language you hear from many people as they get older is based on not being able to do things, and that aches and pains are unavoidable. However, the knowledge we now have in the field of longevity indicates that you can reverse these effects and lead a very active life into your later years. Individuals who have a habitually negative mentality will not believe it’s possible to improve their attitudes, and their health, as they get older.

By utilizing the power of your mind for positive thinking, you can reach higher fitness goals and achieve a state of vibrant health.
