Change Your Thinking Change Your Life Audio Contributed by Our Friends at InspireDiscipline
The ability to change the way you think is one of the most powerful tools you have at your disposal. The way you think about yourself, the world around you, and the future all play a role in shaping your reality. If you want to change your life, it all starts with changing your thinking.
One of the biggest ways that changing your thinking can change your life is by impacting your attitude. Your attitude is what determines how you approach life and its challenges. If you have a positive outlook, you're more likely to see the good in every situation and believe that things will work out in the end.
On the other hand, if you have a negative attitude, you're more likely to focus on the negative aspects of every situation and give up when things get tough. Attitude is everything, and changing yours can be the first step towards changing your life for the better.
In addition to impacting your attitude, changing your thinking can also lead to changes in your behavior. The way you think about yourself and the world around you affects how you act on a day-to-day basis. If you want to make lasting changes in your life, it's important to start by changing the way you think about yourself and your circumstances.
When you change your thinking, you'll be surprised at how quickly your behavior changes as well.
Making changes to the way you think may not seem like a big deal, but it can have a profound impact on every aspect of your life. If you're ready to make some positive changes, start by taking a close look at the way you think about yourself and the world around you. Once you start to see things differently, everything else will fall into place.
Have you ever noticed that your thoughts affect your mood? For example, if you’re thinking about a problem at work, you might feel tense and anxious.
Alternatively, if you’re thinking about a happy memory, you might feel joyful and content. Your thoughts not only influence your emotions they can also impact your physical well-being. In fact, scientists believe that up to 90% of diseases are caused by stress. Stress can manifest in the body as headaches, stomach aches, chest pain, and even heart disease.
So, what does this all mean? It means that changing your thinking can change your life for the better.
Reduce stress by learning to let go of negative thoughts.
Whether it’s worry about the future or resentment about the past, holding onto negative thoughts creates stress in the body. The next time you find yourself ruminating on something negative, take a step back and ask yourself if there’s anything you can do to change the situation. If the answer is no, then it’s time to let it go.
One way to do this is to envision putting the thought into a balloon and releasing it into the sky. As the balloon gets smaller and smaller in the distance, so too will the hold that negative thought has on you.
Create a positive mindset by practicing gratitude.
A negativity bias is hardwired into our brains it’s what helped our ancestors survive in times of danger by always being on the lookout for potential threats. While this served an important purpose centuries ago, nowadays it just creates anxiety and prevents us from enjoying life’s many blessings. One way to counterbalance this negativity bias is by practicing gratitude on a daily basis.
You can do this by keeping a gratitude journal or simply taking a few moments at the end of each day to reflect on things you’re grateful for. Focusing on what’s good in your life will help create a more positive outlook overall.
Boost your immune system by thinking positive thoughts about yourself.
Did you know that your personal beliefs can impact your physical health? A study done at Harvard found that people who held positive beliefs about aging (such as “I am healthy and full of energy”) were three times less likely to die over a seven-year period than those who held negative beliefs (such as “I am worn out and dread getting old”).
So if you want to live a long and healthy life, start by changing the way you think about yourself!
The next time you find yourself feeling stressed or down, remember that changing your thinking can change your life for the better. Reducing stress by letting go of negative thoughts and cultivating a more positive outlook will help improve both your mental and physical well-being. So why not give it a try? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
