Hello, I just wanted to share a portion of an article from the Mayo Clinic Staff about positive thinking.
Is your glass half-empty or half-full? How you answer this age-old question about positive thinking may reflect your outlook on life, your attitude toward yourself, and whether you’re optimistic or pessimistic — and it may even affect your health.
Indeed, some studies show that personality traits such as optimism and pessimism can affect many areas of your health and well-being. The positive thinking that usually comes with optimism is a key part of effective stress management. And effective stress management is associated with many health benefits.
If you tend to be pessimistic, don’t despair — you can learn positive thinking skills. Understanding positive thinking and self-talk positive thinking doesn’t mean that you keep your head in the sand and ignore life’s less pleasant situations.
Positive thinking just means that you approach unpleasantness in a more positive and productive way. You think the best is going to happen, not the worst. Positive thinking often starts with self-talk. Self-talk is the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through your head.
These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative. Some of your self-talk comes from logic and reason. Other self-talk may arise from misconceptions that you create because of a lack of information.
If the thoughts that run through your head are mostly negative, your outlook on life is more likely pessimistic. If your thoughts are mostly positive, you’re likely an optimist — someone who practices positive thinking.
The point is that ONPASSIVE brings to our life yet another benefit, specifically through the ‘Community” feature and that is the constant contact with positive persons. Thanks to all. We are here to win!
