Think Good Feel Good.

Did you know that thinking positive, affirming thoughts can truly affect your fitness and overall health? When you think good thoughts your body actually creates feel good hormones! These hormones give you more energy, balance your mood and can even contribute to your body’s healing abilities.

Think good feel good. 🙂

Beware: it works the same if you’re a negative thinker. If you have dark stressful thoughts, that sends negative messages throughout your body causing negative results. Lethargy, depression, etc. If you are frequently stressed out and miserable, your body will secrete hormones that wreak havoc over time.

Think good feel good.

Touching Toes

Here’s a super quick way to release some of that tension caused by stress: Touch your toes. Doing this opens up your hip joints and stretches your hamstrings, areas where we tend to store a lot of tension.

Think positive!

If you find yourself stressed, it can be difficult to alter your thinking process from worries to happy thoughts. There are any number of things to worry us but we’ve mentioned it before and will keep doing so. In spite of the negative stress you must deal with, try to stop the bad thoughts. Replace them with something positive.

It truly is a “mind over matter” concept. Give it a try; you could start by simply telling yourself repeatedly: “I can survive this“.

Think good feel good.

Obviously it would be difficult to tell yourself you’re “So happy!” when your world feels like it’s falling apart. But you can generate positive thoughts of survival instead of wallowing in negative thoughts of despair.

Feel Good!

If you find yourself really having a difficult time thinking anything positive, try this exercise for the spirit.

Text, call or email three to five friends or loved ones’ and tell each of them one thing you enjoy about him or her. Something that makes or has made YOU smile. That forces your thoughts to good things. And … You’ll make them feel good, too and that will make you feel better.

What goes around truly does come around!

It’s a about choices we can make granted to us by human free will.

Make positive choices. Think good feel good.
