Change how you see Things. Some people are so caught up in their own reality that they’re not aware of anyone else around them. And it’s not always a good reality.
Take your typical worker who goes in to work every day with a long face just wanting the clock to strike 5pm as quickly as possible. He – or she – is miserable at work and unfortunately will let everyone else know about it. The reason they’re miserable though is because they’re not doing what they want. They feel trapped. But maybe they don’t even know what they want to be spending five days a week, eight hours a day, doing.
It makes sense then to find a way of making their working lives more pleasant. Not only will it stop them feeling so bitter and fed up, but it’ll also improve both their mental and physical wellbeing. Most people are aware of the story of the patient who was dying of cancer and refused treatment. Instead he ordered a pile of comedy DVDs and laughed his way through the days. He survived. Then there was the patient with cancer who was given a miracle drug and his tumors shrank. Later he read a report stating the drug didn’t work. The patient relapsed. He later died.
Both examples showed the powerful effect of our minds on our bodies. What goes through your mind on a daily basis? If it’s negative thoughts, think how that will affect your well-being. Not only that, but tell yourself you’re ineffective and you’ll become so. Start seeing chores such as going to the gym as positive experiences and they’ll become less painful or laborious to carry out. You might even get round to enjoying them!
