So many times in our life and on a daily basis we focus on our problems…

We hear it all around us….the woos and worries of the world I call it. Complaints about everything from the weather, traffic congestion, cost of gas, teenagers, you name it and there is a complaint.
It is like a moan and groan epidemic.

Did you know that moaning and groaning are not good for your health?
Did you know that your thoughts direct your behavior?
Did you know that your thoughts influence your health?
Did you know that you become what you think?

Each and every one of these complaints results in:

 1.Negative thoughts

2. Negative thoughts create negative emotions in every cell in your body

3. Negative emotions cause these cells to become ill at ease or dis-eased

4. Therefore your Complaints cause you to become sick.

 Think about it! The Woos lead you to both physical and emotional dis-ease. You have a choice. Choose to let go of the complaints. Switch your Focus to all the Positives you have going on. They are there, take time to look.

Here is a Positive Thinking Activity for You 
 
1. At the end of the day reflect on all of your negative words.
2. Write them down on paper.
3. Now rewrite them in a positive reframe.
4. Daily be conscious of the words you use and before they leave your mouth try a  positive spin or reframe.
5. Check your mood as you use these positive reframes. Notice a shift?

 My Mother always said, ‘if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all’.
 

Try to incorporate that thought into your everyday language…your body will thank you for it!!

Have a wonderful Canadian Thanksgiving!!!
Stay Positive!
