The Power of Positive Thinking

Positive Thinking is extremely powerful. Many times it’s so hard to think positively in situations because it seems so gosh darn difficult to. You feel like your worlds about to fall apart or you feel like it’s unchangeable. Over the past few months, I have really tried to form my thoughts and my words to focus on it being more positive. I am trying to frame my mindset and re-word things to make them better. For example, if I feel like I am getting sick, I used to think “Oh no! I don’t want to get sick! I can’t get sick!”. Instead, I will tell myself “I am happy and healthy” repeatedly throughout the day. I feel that by saying things in the more positive way, I am more likely to remain healthy. Don’t get me wrong, I still take my Vitamin C, Echinacea and Oil of Oregano but I continuously think positively. It’s not an easy thing to do, but it gets easier with time.

Why not think positively? I once heard a quote that said something like (I suck at quotes so don’t quote my quote), “Your brain has room for only one thought at a time. Why not make it a positive one”? So true. Why not? If you had a choice, wouldn’t you much rather think the positive way versus the negative way? Why not choose to see the good in situations, instead of strictly the bad. What do good things do? They make you happy, cause you to calm down and actually think¬†clearly and¬†reduce your heart rate. Thinking negatively will cause you to increase your heart rate, cause you to more likely think irrational thoughts and just make you feel worse about yourself. It’s a lot less likely that good things will come out of thinking negatively versus thinking positively.

From this point on, think positively. Why the hek not? There’s really no good reason to not think positively. Situations — both positive and negative — shape us to who we are today.

Think positively — I dare ya!


Meridian Tapping

I know this may sound a bit “hippy dippy”, but I recently heard about Meridian Tapping and wanted to share it with you. I hope none of you are like me, a sufferer of anxiety. Anxiety is not fun and I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemy. I’m always looking of new ways to help combat it, without having to take any of the drugs. I’d much rather exercise to feel better about myself than to pop a simple pill and mask everything.

So, never heard of meridian tapping? Well you’re not alone. In basic terms, meridian tapping is tapping on certain points around the body to relieve stress. These specific spots are related to acupuncture, so in a sense, it’s acupuncture without the needles. All you need to do is say a simple statement and tap on certain parts of your body 5-7 times. Repeat this process 3x. Once completed, you should feel some sort of relief.

Check out the site below on the tapping sites, the video on how to properly do tapping and an example of statements you should do while tapping.

Again, I apologize for the “hippy-dippyness” of this post, but whatever works works right?
