Positive Thinking Yields Surprising Benefits

Filed under: Health — admin @ 7:24 am

A longtime friend of mine emailed me lately an article written by Jennifer Openshaw, author of The Millionaire Zone. Since the email was written in Chinese and my children cannot read them, I paraphrase the main ideas below. The central theme of the author is positive thinking will yield surprising desirable result to your brain, your health, and even your career.

The following practices will help you to lead a happy, healthy life, with certain degree of success.
(1) Count your blessings. Write down a list of things you are thankful everyday. We all know that we willl decrease our complaints when we are aware how blessed we are already.

(2) Keep a journal. It is a very beneficial practice in the long run. Get into a habit of journaling.

(3) Exercise to stay healthy.

(4) Think and reflect upon what you are doing, for 5 minutes at least everyday. It will give you a different perspective, relaxing and reconciling.

(5) Do good whenever there is a chance. It always leave you with a good feeling after you have done a good deed and realize you have made difference in a good way.

Develop positive habits or get rid of negative ones if you need to. The good news is it will take only 21 days for a habit to be formed.

Happy Friday with happy habits!

P.S. A friend of mine read this and promised to “practice these five things starting today!” 7/14/09. So shall I.
