How to Change Your Negative Thoughts to be Healthy
I used to be a pessimist. I was in total denial about my negative thinking. I claimed to be a realist when I was confronted about my negativity.
I didn’t realize until well into my 30s that having such negative thoughts was creating negative issues with my overall health.
Pessimism came naturally to me. It was just part of who I was.
I openly share about my health struggles with depression, anxiety, migraines, brain fog, fatigue, infertility and more.
When it came to my health issues, I used to think things like ‘That’s just my luck’.
Now I know that my health has nothing to do with good or bad luck...more like good or bad choices.
If you’re a habitual negative thinker, just know that it’s possible to change those thought patterns.
It’s not easy. Practicing to change any habit is a daily conscious effort.
I think you’ll be amazed at the impact that positive thoughts will have on your life. I know I was!
One of my favorite books on this topic is Mind over Medicine by Dr. Lissa Rankin. She gives example after example of how our mind can either make us sick or heal us.
If you’re reading this and think I’m full of it, that thoughts don’t have that much control over our health, read my full post about the power of a positive mindset over at the Blonde Wanderlust blog.
