We spend much of our lives seeking to better ourselves.
This can be the betterment of our day-to-day procedures, relationships, or simply our overall outlook on life.
One of the best ways to seek actual, tangible improvement in our lives is by using the Law of Attraction, which is utterly emphatic about the benefit of thinking positive thoughts and the way in which they bring actual benefits to your real life.
This is because we are a representation of the energy that we channel. Out of the entire universe, our goal should be to channel energy that is positive and pleasant. That is how we can actively improve our lives.
What Exactly Is Positive Thinking?
One of the most common misconceptions about positive thinking is that one must fabricate happy situations or look at the world with excessive/delusional optimism.
That’s simply not true.
The real way to think positively is to look at life through an optimistic lens, and gain perspective on the gravity of situations.
A positive thinker would subscribe to the latter half of the old saying “one could complain that a rosebush has a thorn, or one could rejoice that a thorn has a rose on it”.
This method of thinking believes in hope, which takes present-day situations for what they’re worth, yet moves on towards a grander picture.
Mental and Physical Health Benefits of Positive Thinking
In practically all studies surrounding aging and lifespan in the world, those who live the longest are typically associated with having less stress.
This is no coincidence. Stress implies negative thoughts and those negative thoughts can lead to a whole assortment of longterm health problems and defects.
For one, negative thinking leads to a poor immune response from the body. This can lead to a higher tendency to get sick, function worse cognitively, and overall have a more dissatisfied life.
We must avoid that by all cost.
In the same vein, positive thinking supports proper immune function and the reduction of anxiety.
This should seem obvious! Think of it this way – anxiety is caused from fear/uncertainty of the unknown. If you develop the habit of approaching new situations positively, you’ll have less intrusive and worrisome thoughts. This new way of living really places things in perspective, which allows us to treasure our very-limited time on the planet.
- Life is precious.
- Life is precious because it is limited.
- Approaching life with a mindset of positivity and gratitude allows you to enjoy life more.
