Wouldn't you rather choose to be happy? A positive attitude not only improves your mood, can also lengthen your life, decreasing major health concerns. Harvard School of Public Health researchers have determined that optimistic individuals were approximately 50% less likely to experience an initial cardiovascular event compared to their pessimistic individuals.
We've listed below FIVE TIPS FOR RESETTING A POSITIVE FRAME.
At Audacious Health we frequently observe the relationship between one's feelings and levels of stress and its impact to health. So, we suggest choose positive emotions, feelings and attitudes. Smile, relax and reset your emotional state and support your ideal health. Try the following five tips to reset a positive frame;-
1. TURN that frown upside down... smiling stimulates positive neurotransmitters in the brain e.g. dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins which create feelings of wellbeing, joy and euphoria.
2. SHAKE it up.... you've probably noticed this is something your dog does when they are agitated, anxious, over-excited or fearful. So have a little shake and brush off bad vibes and have a dance to some good vibes.
3.BREATHE... take a deep breath and visualise the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems balancing. Take another breath and visualise the right and left hemispheres of the brain balancing.
4. STAND up / Sit up straight... Caught yourself slouching? Bringing your spine back to an upright position and notice how you instantly feel more positive when you hold that frame and allow for better breathing. The breath is an invisible link between the mind and body.
5.RELAX those shoulders... hunched shoulders = negative, relaxed shoulders = positive. Something as simple as relaxing your shoulders can have a profound effect in calming your entire nervous system. But don’t stop there. Relax your face muscles, your forehead, and where you are feeling tension in the body.
