Choosing a direction
In every single thing you do you are choosing a direction. Your life is the product of choices.
~Dr. Kathleen Hall
Love this quote!
A positive happy healthy life doesn’t just happen. We need to be conscious and deliberate in making positive healthy choices every day in order to reap a positive healthy life.
One of the timeless truths of positive, healthy and empowered living can be stated simply that “our thoughts create our world”. What we meditate on determines our destiny and how life unfolds. This has been taught by the most brilliant of spiritual teachers. Our thoughts will influence our attitude and approach to life, and the actions we take that is why it is so important to be aware of our thoughts and train ourselves to think healthy, positive and empowered.
There are three ways we can improve the quality of our thoughts:
- Improve the quality of your surroundings. Our environment will shape our mood and our thoughts. Be mindful who you associate with, the books you read, the TV shows you watch, and movies you see, and the conversations you have. If you are spending too much time with negative, energy draining people you will be tired and exhausted. Start uplifting your environment.
- Workout consistently. It’s difficult to train your mind to be positive and optimistic if your body is unhealthy. We need to move to keep our mind clear, focused and aware. Be relentless in your commitment to exercise regularly.
- Take “power thought” breaks. Start your day meditating on mantras, affirmations, scriptures that empower and strengthen you. As you walk through your day, take 2 min breaks and repeat your meditation practice. This is such a powerful practice to healthy positive thinking. It takes patience and a never give up attitude because it takes time to train ourselves to think positive and healthy so don’t give up.
So, remember, we have only one day at a time to live, so let’s live this day positively, and optimistically and let’s choose well!
