Think-positive-450x337

Positive thinking focuses your mental and emotional attitude on the bright side of life and expects positive results.  Keeping a positive mindset will affect your health as well as your overall state of wellbeing.  When you experience pleasant and happy feelings your eyes become brighter, you have more energy, and happiness becomes contagious. Your voice is also more powerful, you walk taller, and display positive body language. Negative thoughts, words and attitude create negative and unhappy feelings, moods and behavior. This leads to toxins being released into your blood stream causing more imbalance and negativity.  So it is important to keep everything positive in your life.

No Negative Thoughts Allowed!
 

Research shows that what/how we think is what affects our feelings and mood. Situations do not determine mood, but how a person thinks about the event or situation does. Two people can face the same circumstances have very different reactions. 

 
A person has around 30,000 thoughts a day, and studies find that 82-90% of our thoughts are negative. The trick is learning how to stop these thoughts before they lead into negative memories that will then but you in a negative mood. It is all about breaking the cycle. The following tips, along with our NADH Supplements that have been proven to help those who suffer from mood instabilities, will get you through the dark thoughts. 


1. Be aware of your thoughts

If you can learn to be actively aware of where your mind wanders off to, and can learn to gain control of it in the first 30 seconds, you can reject the thought before turns into a full on negative session. It takes time but it is possible to develop the art of discerning a thought quickly. Learn to reject and refuse a negative thought before it occupies space in your mind.

2. Make a decision.

Research has found that no matter what happens to you in life, you tend to return to a fixed range of happiness. Researchers show that 50 percent of our mind-set comes from genetics, 10 percent is determined by our circumstances (like our job, marital status, wealth), 40 percent is determined by our habitual thoughts, feelings, words and actions.

Why is it that some people can go through the hardest of times, (death of a loved one, loss of a job, house burns down, personal rejection, etc.) and yet they still have a positive attitude and outlook on life? While others get a hangnail and the whole world must stop and send condolences.

The answer is to make the decision to choose happiness, and that choice starts with a thought.


Here are some examples for flipping the script. The trick is not focusing on what you don’t like, and switching it to positive things. Think about what you do like, or the things in life that you can control.

I look so fat in everything I wear. VS  I love my smile and the joy it brings to so many people.
 
 I always mess this duty up VS I didn’t get it right this time.  
 
I feel stuck in this relationship.VS I am responsible for my joy and today is going to be an awesome day.
Instead of guessing or mind reading about what others think about you or need from you- Ask.
Don’t get stuck.  You are constantly making decisions, taking action, thinking thoughts that can change your perspective and your life.
