The Power of Positive Thinking
This week, Sabrina wore her Empower Adjustable Ankle Weights and showed us a strength-building circuit workout to blast calories. She cycled through some of her favorite exercises that target different muscle groups. The best part about circuit training is you don’t need a lot of time to see amazing results. This 20-minute workout is a great way to increase weight loss by burning fat and gaining muscle. To step things up and add extra resistance to the workout, try using the Empower Adjustable Ankle Weights!
Part III of our Wellness Series covered the power of positive thinking. Positive thinking is an emotional and mental attitude that focuses on the good and expecting results that will benefit you. The key to positive thinking is always anticipating happiness, health & success. Thinking positively can make a major impact in all areas of your life. Your thoughts affect how you act and your actions translate into whether or not you succeed. Our thoughts create our perspective of ourselves and the world around us.
Donna talked us through taking responsibility for how we think, act, and feel, allowing everything in our lives to fall into place. We might not be able to control life’s events, but you can control how you react to them.
Here is how you can embrace the power of positive thinking:
- Start every day with positive affirmations
- Focus on the good things, no matter how small they might be
- Find humor in bad situations
- Turn failures into lessons
- Turn “I Can’t” into “I Can”
- Live in the moment
- Find positive friends & mentors
Positive thinking offers compounding returns. The more often you practice it, the greater benefits you will experience. And like Zig Ziglar said, “positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will”.
Practicing gratitude is proven to make you happier and less depressed. We spend a lot of time and energy focusing on the things we currently don’t have. Gratitude reverses our focus to help us appreciate the people and things we do have. I urge you to take a few minutes to write a list of the people and things you are grateful for in your life and read it every morning for a week to start your day on a positive note. Then reflect back on your week to see if you notice the positive mindset effect.
Remember, if you start your day with a positive mindset, you will see the positive in everything!
