Question Your Perceptions
How you see the world influences your thoughts, feelings, and actions towards yourself, situations, and others. Are you the person who gravitates towards gossip? Do you think past events limit your personal goals and abilities? Do you say to yourself bad things always happen to me?
If your answered yes you may be acknowledging and remembering events in your life more negatively than in a balanced representation of reality.
Instead, choose to see your world in a positive light. This helps train the mind and body to accomplish goals that you think are out of reach.
Recent studies show self-produced changes in mood can increase serotonin production, positively affecting cell signaling in the body and brain (4).
Keep a gratitude journal to promote positive thinking, this helps reinforce positive memories and experiences. Likewise, think about things you are thankful for first thing in the morning. This can train your mind to focus on the positives daily and effect your mental and physical well-being.
Wishing you a life of dreams fulfilled.
