How to Embrace Optimism
Let’s talk about how to embrace optimism. These days, it can be a hard to believe in and to embrace optimism. It’s important to remember we always have choices when it comes to how we think, how we feel, what we choose to “feed our heads”. First though, I want to tell you a story.
I want to tell you a story about a young girl. It’s not a happy story, although the ending is a good surprise. This young girl became sad and depressed at the age of twelve and lived that way for many years. She couldn’t be joyful and optimistic. When her peers were enjoying high school and becoming teenagers, she cried all the time, and no one could figure out what was wrong with her. Her parents tried to reason with her, but there was no consoling her. Eventually, not knowing what to do, her parents punished her for crying and for being sad. This made her hide her sadness, but it didn’t make her less sad.
I was that young girl, and I lived as a sad person for many years. In fact, I lived like that for several decades.
It took years of struggling with my mood and my mental attitude and my self-talk before I accidentally discovered what would change my life.
If I’m painting a bleak picture, it’s because it’s all true.
I know from personal experience that change can be hard. It can be challenging to move forward on your own, take action and make changes, even if those changes can have amazing effects on your health and well being, both mental and physical. For me, the change began with changing the food I was eating, but it didn’t end there.
I changed what I was feeding my body, and that did help me immensely, but I still had to address what I was feeding my mind; what I was feeding my head. I had to learn to think positively and to embrace optimism.
When you learn how to embrace optimism, you enjoy benefits not only for your mind but also for your body and spirit as well. With a conscious decision to become more optimistic, a few tips and techniques, new habits are formed, health is improved, and your life can be changed; all through the power of optimism.
The brain-body connection is real. When you are anxious and worried, you put additional stress on your body. When you’re all stressed out, stress hormones like cortisol are activated. Constantly elevated levels of cortisol can have a negative effect on your immune system and can weaken your body’s ability to fight off disease.
I believe what I discovered and still practice today can change your life as well!
If that sounds too good to be true, I don’t blame you, but I promise you…it’s true! I discovered the link between what I think, what I expose my mind to and my overall health and wellness, both mental and physical!
So many times over these past few years, people have asked me what I changed about my eating choices and my thinking choices that allowed me to leave decades of struggle with chronic depression behind and just learn to be a happier, healthier person!
I decided to create a course so I could share the ideas and techniques that can help you learn to embrace optimism.
In the course, I dig deep with information that will educate and inform you about the very important subject of optimism. Now, it’s more important than ever to be constantly feeding our heads positive talk, reading positive books and learning to be more positive in general. Some days are tougher than others and frankly, some hours are tougher than others.
Now I understand the link between what I “feed my head” and how I feel, so I’m on a mission to share what I’ve learned. What I discovered is amazing!!
The really good news is that it’s not hard to learn how to embrace optimism if you have someone to guide you and to answer your questions along the way…
The course is “Embrace Optimism”. It’s perfect for the time in which we find ourselves. Please check it out and let me know if you have questions.
I’ve added a special bonus to all the planned content that is a set of 30 images and quotes to uplift and inspire you when you need a little extra dose of optimism in your day!
