Thinking positively has great health benefits
An article written by John Anderson talks about developing a peaceful core and finding clarity through logical thought. He talks about his own health issues and that his positivity had a part to play in his recovery.
Many years ago I learned the importance of developing a peaceful core. When everyone else was running around, pulling their hair out and screaming about impending doom and crises, I would always put things in perspective. Had anyone died as a result of the calamity at hand? No? Can it be fixed by making an adjustment to something we’re already doing? Yes? Then it’s not a crisis. It’s a situation. Situations can be handled. They may not be fun to handle, but they aren’t the end of the world. The world is always going to be a crazy, chaotic place. That’s just the nature of the beast and you have no control over that. The only thing you can control is how you react to the craziness and if you’re going to let chaos take hold inside of you. I can guarantee you, if you let the chaos take hold of you inside, you won’t be very effective in the outside world.
