“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
“Any happy little thought?” Yes! Positive thinking is believed to influence your long-term health and happiness.
As we finish up with our March theme, “The Month of Happiness,” we ask the age old question… Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Is your glass half full or half empty? Before you get out of bed in the morning, do you tell yourself that your day is going to be amazing or terrible? If your outlook on life tends to fall into the pessimistic category, you may be affecting your life in a negative way.
Researchers are still exploring the power that positive thinking has over our health. Some of the benefits that optimism is thought to provide (besides a contagious smile) include:
Increased life expectancy
Lower rates of anxiety and depression
Greater immune system response
Better psychological and physical well-being
Reduced risk of cardiovascular-related issues
Better coping skills during times of stress and hardship
If you do have a tendency to think or speak negatively, fear not – there are ways to train yourself to be more positive. We found this article to be very helpful! Now we’re not saying to bury your head in the sand and completely ignore the negativity that life can throw at you from time to time. There are some things that you just have to deal with, but you don’t have to let them consume you. You can learn from the negative experiences, rather than drown in them. Don’t you deserve to be happier? We certainly think so.
Thank you for visiting. We at Koru wish you wellness and POSITIVITY 🙂
