Expressions-15.jpgPositive thinking is tough to consistently practice, but it's worth attempting in order to reduce stress and have a more optimistic outlook on life.

Studies have shown that personality traits like being an optimistic person or a pessimist can impact different areas of health and well-being. Positive thinking is crucial in managing the stress in your life. Being a optimist doesn’t mean ignoring life’s unpleasant situations, but, rather, approaching the situation in a positive and productive way. It all starts with self-talk, which is the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that cross your mind throughout the day. Some thoughts are logical and reasoned and some arise from self-created misconceptions.

It is imperative to keep these thoughts as positive as possible because learning this technique can lead to:

  • Increased life span
  • Lower rates of depression
  • Lower levels of distress
  • Greater resistance to the common cold
  • Better psychological and physical well-being
  • Better cardiovascular health
  • Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress

Be well.
