Building off of our previous post, which dealt with the importance of perception in regards to positivity and time, this week we’ll be looking at the next step in healthy mindsets: dealing with the disease of worrying.
If you’ve been following along, you might also remember one of our articles highlighting the factor that fear plays in our lives. Worry is a close cousin of fear and it can be detrimental to not only your success, but your physical health as well. According to the American Institute of Stress, 25% of American’s experience extreme stress which manifests itself in depression, heart palpitations, etc. What’s more, is that stress has also been pointed out as the basic cause of 60% of all human illness and disease.
Is that not shocking? Just think about what else your perspective could be altering. When you live with worry and stress, your body language changes, your tone changes, and the way you interact with others also changes. Eventually these changes may lead to negative outcomes as well as negative attitudes. After enough time, this will eventually lead to a decline in your physical health, as we’ve already pointed out, and not only will you wake up a leg behind on achieving your dreams (due to inactivity based out of fear), but you will also be suffering down path of poor health.
To help nourish your positive thinking and mental wellness, here’s a video resource from motivational speaker Jim Rohn.
This week’s takeaway:
Remember the importance of your mental landscape and tend to it with great care and passion. Plant seeds of hope, rather than worry.
