There is absolutely no question that having a good attitude has a direct impact on how you feel. Think about it – if you complain a lot, people commiserate, you complain more, and you start looking for things to complain about. You feel more of those negative things.
You find what you’re looking for!
There is a lot of scientific data to back this up. It’s “psychoneuroimmunology.”
How you think, how you interact, the things you do, how you react – it all affects your health!
I have focused a lot on all of these things. Forcing myself to look at the bright side, to interact with people even if I don’t really feel like it, observing things rather than reacting to them, and especially NOT WORRYING ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK OF ME, are all part of my daily routine.
I wrote a little about the effect in This Article about dealing with MS during the holidays.
I go into the outlook aspect of attitude in this video. This, of course, is just the tip of the iceberg, but it will get you on the right track!
