How many people would gladly choose to live your life, if given a chance? Pause for a minute and reflect on what is excellent about your life? What needs attention?
Do you automatically think about the areas that aren’t working? Your life is meant to be joyful, fun, happy, and meaningful. If you are not experiencing these, then hop into the driver’s seat and drive there today!
There is only one person in your world to put the smile back in your eyes. Only through your power of choice do you experience greater wellness – it’s an inside job!
So for this week, give all your attention to what is well in your body and life. Rejoice and celebrate what is working! Spend some time reflecting on what makes you feel really great! Let’s do lots more of that! Do at least one of these activities today, do several this week, and lots this month!
Try this: What activities make you smile and feel superb? What are your own “bright spots”? The key is the feelings you experience! The more you relax and enjoy the better your hormones and immune system function.
When you are relaxed, peaceful, and centred, you heighten your senses. Your awareness is more alert. This helps you feel more alive in the present moment of time. You begin to feel like the birds singing in a sunny, bright spring morning! Joyfully alive!
Now guess what happens in your cells? Your cells sing too! When you feel happy, good health is created. When you feel unhappy, bad health is created. This has been scientifically proven.
Vibrant health is a great lifetime journey; it is not a one-time destination. The more often you experience what makes you feel good, the quicker your body heals!
Norman Cousins proved this when he spent his time watching movies that caused him to laugh. The result was that he healed his body! Laughter is great medicine. Humour is a gift well worth cultivating – it lightens and brightens the atmosphere of your life.
“Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.” – Francesca Reigler
Here’s the best news – as you feel good, your cells respond by creating more energy and healing agents. Being in the driver’s seat, the practical optimist will choose activities that continuously increase feeling good.
