There are many physiological reasons for why we tend to think negatively. One of the reasons is the lack of blood circulating in our body. If we want to improve our circulatory system, we should aim to do at least one hour of physical activity a day.
Another reason is related to your eating habits. If you do not have a healthy and balanced nutrition, chances are you’ll get constipated, which will affect your overall physical and mental health. Likewise having bad breathing habits or an unconscious breathing, could decrease the air supply to the brain, which could also lead to the generation of negative thoughts.
The brain is like a child looking for attention. If a negative thought comes to your mind, you should try to find a positive one to overshadow the negative. Pay attention to the good things around you, instead of the negative ones; this will help you improve as a human being and guide you towards finding the peace we all need and look for.
According to Buddha “All that we are, is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts”. You create your life through your thinking, if you desire a beautiful and peaceful life, start by thinking positive!
Putting your heart into your work, and everything you do will help you think in a positive way, leaving fears and negativity behind. Negative thoughts are created by fear for past experiences or doubts we have about the future: Who are we?, Where we are going?, What we want?, What is the mission in our life? These are some of the questions we ask ourselves that make us feel anxious about the future. That is why we must live in the present.
Meditation is a wonderful way to deal with the stress of modern life by taking the time stop all those bad habits, by becoming aware of the present moment, we fulfill our minds with positive thoughts. It also helps you improve your breathing and restore your sense of balance and concentration.
Try to dedicate at least 15 minutes daily to connect and listen to your inner self, close your eyes and breathe. Meditation involves listening to your thoughts, identifying and labeling them, and then releasing them without allowing them to stay. Let your mind flow.
Last but not least, try to find that link with divinity and deepen the relationship. Remember that there is a limit to what we can do, the rest is in God’s hands.
