People experience many different emotions all the time. Although we can’t prevent negative thoughts, if they’re consistent they can have negative effects on you physically.
All of the emotions cause a different environment in the body as the body release different chemicals varying from each emotion. If the body releases Seratonin, Oxytocin, or Dopamine you will feel happy. If it releases Cortisol, you will feel stressed out and possibly even depressed.
You may wonder what happens to your body when you have negative thought all the time. Are things innately positive or negative, or do we define them ourselves? We spend a lot of time thinking and or judging what is considered positive or negative. It all depends on the beholder’s perception.
Most of the time, there are no positive or negative things just by definition, but it is you that find them to be one way or the other. If they consistently have negative thoughts, try to find the brighter side of the situations. Humans have a huge connection between body and mind. Positive things can lead to a more positive lifestyle. Destructive thinking can lead to a more unfulfilling lifestyle.
When you feel pain in certain areas, it is often linked to an emotional issue. For instance, if you are feeling pain in the back, knees, neck or shoulders, it is likely that dealing with your emotions will help you get a relief, contrary to the popular belief that exercise or physio will work it out.
You need to learn to process emotions and illness quickly by determining the reason why they appeared in the first place. For instance, if you believe that you will get sick, the chances are that you will continue having it until you understand that you have the control over it and that everything depends on your perception. Positive thinking equals a positive lifestyle.
