Managing Chronic Stress – A Key to Optimum Health

Recognizing and accepting stress is important to keeping the body in good health. Here are some tips to help you manage thoughts, feelings and beliefs.

Learn to meditate: The goal of meditation is no thought; a clearing of your mind to shut of your thoughts.

Stop thinking about the things you do not want: You create what you think about and believe in.

Believe in yourself. If you think you can or think you can’t; either way, you are right.

Practice gratitude: Feeling good in your mind helps you feel good in your body. The converse is also true. This is something only you can control.

Write down what you want to see: Read it aloud.  Having clarity about what you want and putting down on paper helps you be clear about it.

Imagine the body you would like to see: Seeing what you want in your mind helps you see it in the material world; just as you would design an object, build a house, make a dress, start a business, etc.

Remind yourself that physical discomfort comes from some uncomfortable emotion: Rather than spending time trying to figure out what the bad feeling is; remind yourself that your body already knows how to heal itself and let it go.

What the body actually does with the food or supplements we take is determined by our thoughts.
