If you ever wonder why positivity is such a big deal to health and wellness, look under the microscope. The mechanism for the connection between health and positivity may be found right in our very cells.
There are no longer doubts that what happens in the brain influences what happens in the body. Numerous studies from multiple leading medical centers including John Hopkins University and Harvard School of Public Health, as well as the National Institutes of Health, have shown an indisputable link between having a positive outlook and health benefits like lower blood pressure, less heart disease, better weight control, and healthier blood sugar levels. When facing a health crisis, actively enhancing positive emotions can boost the immune system and counter depression.
As a person who understands both spirituality and human physiology, I find it no accident that in the human body, positivity is mandatory for a new movement, just as it is for your spiritual health success. It’s like the secret formula to personal success is hidden right in your very cells.
Being positive is in your true nature, in fact, it’s actually in your body. Positivity isn’t just a hidden force you interact with; it is a very real force that lives in you and brings about tremendous action. Your body is electric, a human energetic soup, made of salts and ions like sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium and all have a specific positive electrical charge. Of course, your body has negative ions too, but in order to make the magic of action happen, it is only the movement of the positive ions that counts.
Here are three things science knows from excitable cells, to help you be more positive and excited about your life.
A positive attitude really is your true nature
While it’s easy to blame negativity on all kinds of outside forces—fate, experiences, parents, relationships, you really have no excuse not to be positive, as your cells are doing that for you every second of your life. Of course, life on the outside will fluctuate from other variables, but with life on the inside and everything that happens in your body, it all happens as a result of a positive influence. No one bad person or no bad mood will ever change that about you.
Allow yourself to let in the positive!
Keep out the negative energy and let in new positive energy and reinforce the positivity in yourself. The body requires training and the more you practice, the better you get, and yes, you can practice being more positive. The best and easiest way to do this is to be positive when it comes to who you are. As I said, you are already positively awesome whether you admit it or not. So, start telling yourself you are awesome. Tell yourself you look good. Tell yourself you did a great job at work, balancing your budget, raising your kids, or whatever it is you do. You are born with billions of excitable cells, thus you have billions of positive attributes and reasons to be excited. Remind yourself of that every day.
Respond to life in a positive way
Not only do you need to be positive with yourself, but you need to be positive with others. Cells share positive impulses with other cells, thus you have to share your wealth of positivity with others in the world. The best way I’ve found to do this is quite simple and basic: Be nice to other people!!
