Our mindset plays the biggest impact on the way we feel and how we live our lives. Life inherently has its ups and downs. We cannot escape the trials and tribulations that life brings. The curve balls we experience can create tremendous amounts of pain, sorrow and torment. However, our approach to life softens those blows and provides us with invaluable lessons on the the meaning of life and how to make our life journey most purposeful.
As we cannot engineer entirely what our lives will be or become, we can learn to roll with the punches and look for the lessons in all of life’s challenges to help support our personal growth toward connecting to our true and authentic selves. When we operate from this place of self-love we learn to navigate the stormy sea with greater ease and grace. An extremely powerful technique that is largely untapped in dealing with life when we judge it to be positive or negative is gratitude. We easily connect to and embrace what we consider the positive emotions that result from favorable experiences and we easily rejoice in the happiness of those moments.
However, as humans we collectively struggle with embracing the positive when life is taking a turn toward a path that we consider unfavorable or are reluctant to pursue. Nevertheless, our application of gratitude is especially useful when life can get rough. Research has confirmed the power of practicing gratitude. It is one of the greatest tools to combat anxiety and depression. The more adept that you become at implementing this simple practice the greater the benefits you will experience from life. This includes the roller coaster of the ups and downs and everything in between when life is stable and filled with equanimity. The practice of gratitude truly assists with dealing with the most challenging situations in which we find ourselves to naturally struggle.
When you open your eyes in the morning, sit for a moment and orient yourself to the present which is considered an appreciation of the gift of a new day, we create a peaceful stream of consciousness that starts our day on a positive and peaceful note. We can easily reconnect through the day to our sense of gratitude and and tap into that silent appreciation.
What you continually give to your body with your beliefs and strong feelings, you receive in your body. Every thought and feeling you have saturates every cell and organ in your entire body. Be careful of the thoughts and feelings unconscious or not that you carry as they make a home in your body. If you find yourself ruminating about negative sensations, perceptions, thoughts, feelings or memories, they store themselves in every part of your body. This impacts not only your mental and emotional health, and the physical as well.
When you provide energy and focus to negative thoughts and feelings of what you do not want, you compromise the health of your cells and your entire body! When you feel love for anything- health, for a sunny day, home, friend, or promotion-your body receives the full force of health.
Gratitude is the great multiplier, so pay gratitude for your health every single day and all the small positive aspects in your life. They compound one another and feed of of each other. Say thank you with all your heart for what you do like about your body, and accept what you may not favor loving yourself unconditionally. Your love and gratitude is what allows you to live authentically, joyfully and whole-heartedly.
