A lot of the time, we are affected by popular culture, social media or just the way our friends and loved ones talk around us. Suggestion can be a powerful thing, and if your mind is impressionable enough, it will do a number on you, since the suggestions we get from others are mainly based on their own issues, and the loudest sounds we hear are usually those of dissatisfaction and anger, expressed by people all around us.
So, in all this mess, how would it be possible to integrate gratitude and appreciation into your everyday life? The answer is simple: by taking care of yourself and practicing it at a mental level, rather than trying to isolate yourself from others or wear ear plugs and eat phones to drown out bad suggestions.
Suggestions coming from yourself are the most powerful kind. Therefore, affirmations and meditation focused on appreciation would be the best ways to replace a negative mindset or a set of negative thoughts coming from others with one focused on gratitude.
The key to your success with this method is to practice it constantly, even if it gets difficult sometimes to think of something you might truly be grateful for. Before that, you will of course have to disarm any negative or aggressive thoughts that might drown out your new thoughts of appreciation. To do that, the best way would be to practice meditation right after an intensive workout. After that, your body and mind will be far more receptive to ideas about gratitude.
Sometimes despite our best efforts, health conditions worsen. During these times, self care is extra important but may not be enough. In these cases, consider researching regenerative stem cell therapy Denver treatment options through the medical professionals at Downtown’s Healthcare.
