Sometimes it really is the thinking that makes it so. Spend your days focusing on your vibrant health and you will be vibrantly healthy. In contrast you could make it known that you lack a healthy lifestyle, and as a result you will continue to live an unhealthy lifestyle. While this belief is held by many, a recent study has come out with even mainstream scientists proclaiming the very real power of thought.

Scientists Find Promoting Own Wellbeing Leads to Longevity

During the 70s more than 8,000 individuals participated in a study where they self-rated their health and were given a medical checkup. Three decades later the participants were reassessed. While taking in risk factors such as tobacco, chronic diseases, and high blood pressure, the scientists found that the individuals who responded positively were more likely to outlive those who replied in the negative. In other words, positive thinking promotes healing and quality health.

It is important to realize that your mind can sometimes be your own worst enemy, or it could be your savior. Increasingly, it is being recognized that a ‘mind over matter’ approach can actually produce noticeable results in your health.

Past research has found that savoring the moment and positive thinking can help to not only improve your current health, but also prevent future health complications. In particular, the findings found positive thoughts to be especially beneficial to those already suffering from diseases like coronary artery disease and high blood pressure.

One very ‘accepted’ example of how thoughts can produce self-healing is when patients demonstrate improved health benefits after being given placebos. It has been found that participants often respond positively to placebos due to the expectation that they are receiving a real medicinal solution. This leads to a mental response that stimulates healing through stress reduction and a number of other factors. This kind of self-treatment can be seen in one case where a woman’s own thoughts made her lose nearly 112 pounds.

Thoughts and thinking are very powerful tools in life. If you believe your illness is becoming worse, it will likely become worse. If you think it is becoming better, it will likely become better. Make every attempt to de-stress the brain, as it will be much easier to come to the realization that your own thoughts and beliefs really can cause self-healing. Search for the gold, and begin promoting your own wellbeing right away.

    It has also been proven that if you want to get somewhere, you have to move. Now, it is hardly worth while for me to read “that if you live a healthy life style,you will be healthier than others and probably live longer unless you get hit by s bus.” That is common sense and I would’ve believed it, but I read other things also. People have always said,”Eat well,and exercise”. Now, long distance runners are found to have bad hearts and die younger. The reason that the medical profession gives is,”The heart is a muscle, and like all muscles, you can’t stress it.”But that’s not what they said yesterday.With luck, I will find out tomorrow,that the best thing to eat and drink will be ice cream and beer.
