Thinking positive doesn’t just feel good. It does good.
I was sent this article recently and it resonated with me.
Positive thinking isn’t the wishy washy platitude it was once taken to be. There is hard evidence that your perception of the world influences your health, your outlook and a number of other important factors.
The bottom line is that positive thinking is good for you! (surprise!)
This is my favourite part:
When you find yourself in a situation, your mind tends to “explain” it to you. It gives you the explanation of why something has happened, and the way you explain it indicates whether you are a negative or positive person.
Let’s say you’ve just found yourself stuck at the office on a Saturday, doing extra paperwork:
- A negative person will grumble about their boss “having it out for them“, and how they “always get stuck with the bad job“.
- A positive person will just get the work done because it’s “something that has to be done, and I’m the one doing it”.
