Eliminating unhealthy words can help create a positive future.
Story: Jan Hranicky
If you eliminate the negative words in your vocabulary, you will begin to eliminate the unhealthy beliefs often associated with negative and painful experiences.
CHANGE THE WAY YOU VIEW YOUR PERSONAL HISTORY.
Give better meaning to your past, and you will give different and more optimistic meanings to your future. You will create an empowered belief system for the future, including increased hope and faith.
PRACTICE PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU FOCUS ON AND WHAT YOU IGNORE.
The process of framing can help you learn how to change the meanings of life situations. Pre-framing: In advance, give yourself something to pay attention to that is desirable, and how you want to feel at the outcome of a situation.
Re-framing: Change something that you view as a problem to something with a better meaning.
Create new experiences so you have references for your empowered beliefs.
BOTH EXCITEMENT AND HOPELESSNESS AFFECT OUR PHYSIOLOGY.
Consistent hopelessness, despair, or chronic distress impacts the central nervous system, which is connected to other body systems. These systems, in turn, influence cell division. Normal cell division is occurring constantly. When you have long-term depression or hopelessness, it affects the hormonal, immune, lymph, and drainage systems of the body. Everything becomes more sluggish, and toxins aren’t excreted as efficiently. Waste products are not eliminated in the body, weakening cellular health. The opposite is also true. Whatever helps you become more excited about life translates at the cellular level. When you’re motivated, it’s as if your whole body has been turned on, and the cells
become more alive.
THE POWER TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU VIEW THINGS GIVES YOU THE ABILITY TO CHANGE YOUR EMOTIONAL STATE AND HEALTH.
Most of our emotional pain, anger, and fear are activated by perceptions created through unhealthy learned beliefs and attitudes. When you’re in a state of emotional pain, anger and fear arise from unhealthy beliefs, and you’ll stay stuck in these dangerous emotions until you shift your focus or change your belief.
Changing your focus is short-term emotional management.
Changing your unhealthy beliefs is long-term
These changes lead to long-lasting stress management, increased states of emotional well-being, and, ultimately, optimal health.
