Chapter 1, Page 22, Book 19

Drag your thoughts away from your troubles — by the ear, but the heals, ar any other way you can manage it.  It the healthiest thing a body can do.

Mark Twain

January 22nd - we are what we think

Nothing erases unpleasant thoughts more effectively
than conscious concentration on pleasant ones.

Hana Selye

People often go to extremes when it comes to keeping healthy, but we don’t often think of our thoughts as a way of healthy living. However, it is a fact that positive thinkers are healthier and less stressed.  They also have greater over all sense of well being. 

Positive thinking can also play a major part in our resilience, our ability to bounce back after a traumatic event. It is more than just being happy or displaying an upbeat attitude.  Positive thoughts help to create real value in our life When we think about joy, contentment and love, we will be happier and healthier too.

You are what you think, not what you eat.

Keep your thoughts right—for as you think, so are you.
Thoughts are things, therefore, think only the things that
 will make life better and you unashamed.

Henry H. Buckley

It is so true. We are what we think and we are what we eat too. Have to have a good balance of both the mind, body, and soul.

So, so true! I'm focused on what I can do after my hip surgery, and not on what will take longer in the recovery. I'm thrilled to start to be out and about and my plan, weather permitting, is to be at my Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow. I've been on a carbfest and it's time to eat a little healthier. Keep cozy!

Amen! Whether we think it's a tragedy - or merely a temporary obstacle - it is what it is. Our thinking's not going to change IT, but what a super opportunity we have to change our minds!
