In this weeks, MondayMotivator,
- Psychosomatic illnesses stem from negative attitudes, affecting health and immune system.
- Positive thinking enhances mental resilience and strengthens the body’s defense mechanisms.
- Good mental health contributes to overall well-being, fostering a healthier and happier life
Research shows that hospital beds are occupied by those who brought on their own illness. They are suffering what is referred to as psychosomatic illness. They are subconsciously causing their illness through a fatalistic, negative approach to life.
This is because when you worry about illness, you adopt a negative attitude to health. For example, “I always get the flu in winter.” It is proven that such beliefs cause a breakdown in the immune system.
What you think about comes about.
If you’re a parent, you might have experienced this from the many mornings dealing with kids who want to stay home or the murmurings of, I’m sick from the car’s back seat when they don’t want to go on an outing.
Research has proven that early ageing or poor health is retarded by good mental health and accelerated by poor mental health.
Change your thoughts, and you change your world.
The human mind is more potent than any pill. We now have abundant evidence to indicate that a strong, positive mental health approach to life, regardless of our hardships, can and will ward off disease. And help us have a healthier and happier life.
The body generates good health when the mind is filled with enthusiasm and positive thoughts. From now start thinking and speaking positive thoughts about your mind, body and spirit. Starting with your self-talk, build a robust defence system and retain good health.
Put something like, “I am a healthy, strong, positive force in my world” on a Post-it note or your phone’s lock screen. You need constant reminders, so your mind starts looking for evidence to support that stance.
Think: I desire to have a healthy and happy life so I will develop good positive mental health. I know that my personal world can be changed by how and what I think. Therefore, my thoughts will now focus on enthusiasm and good health, which will help me build a strong immune system and a resilient mindset.
