Sorry I’ve been a little slow in the blog department. I’ve had a few deaths in the family and some really bad shit going on in my life. I am planning to sit down and make a video about it.
Have you checked out my youtube channel? I have been doing my makeup and just reflecting on things on my mind. I just want everyone to feel beautiful – use a nice, bold lipstick today, wear your favorite hat or put on some of your old time fav tracks and listen to the music that made you feel beautiful.
This week I want to share this story with you I wrote – please enjoy
If you’re a cancer patient like myself or going through chronic illness, then you know the troubles—that come along with it—can often become unbearable.
If you believe that this “mind over matter” philosophy doesn’t work, then you’ve got some rethinking to do. The way you think shapes the way you live, which ultimately determines the state of your health.
Mental stability is just as important as physical stability. In fact, your mental and physical state are directly linked. How you organize your thoughts directly impacts your health.
If you don’t believe me, then allow me to change your mind by giving you 5 ways adopting the mind over matter philosophy can help you overcome any problem!
1. Positive thinking encourages better health
Have you ever thought why people with a positive outlook on life live longer?
If you didn’t know this already, what goes in your mind affects your body deeply. People who encourage positive thinking tend to not only live longer but also healthier.
So lighten up your mood and get lost in the dreamy world of happy thoughts!
2. Trick your mind into believing
If you believe in something one-hundred percent for a long time, then your body will work to make it happen. Self-hypnosis can help you lose or gain weight, quit addictions, and even manage chronic pain.
So if you believe that you will beat cancer (and you will!), your body will put up more of a fight.
Don’t wait, start believing now that you will become better and you will beat cancer. Also, surround yourself with people who encourage this kind of positive thinking.
3. Believe in a higher purpose
As I explained before, your thoughts empower you to become a better version of yourself.
People who believe in a higher purpose firmly believe they can overcome any problem. By accepting that anything is possible, they unlock powerful resilience within them.
So, if you don’t believe you have a purpose, then you better change your outlook on life.
4. Meditation never hurts
If you want to get better sleep, reduce stress, control anxiety, increase focus, have more energy, strengthen your immune system, then start meditating.
Keeping these impressive benefits in mind, it’s easy to see that the 10-20 minutes of effort spent on meditating daily pays off in the long run.
If you don’t believe me, try searching “effects of meditation” on Google. I can guarantee you won’t see even a single source that has any negative thing to say about meditation.
5. Resist negative thoughts
Negative thoughts can hurt you.
If you’re taking medication but don’t believe that it will help you, then your chances of being cured reduce significantly.
So resist negative thoughts whenever they try to creep into your mind. Try to change what you’re thinking of something that triggers happy thoughts instead of sad ones.
Mind Over Matter Can Even Help You Beat Cancer
Mind over matter is the perfect philosophy for improving your mental hygiene. If you implement the 5 ways I mentioned in your life, then you will significantly improve your chances of beating cancer.
