The benefits of positive thinking are incredibly numerous and diverse. It can effect every aspect of your life. Positive thinking consists of acting upon any emotion that branches from love, one of the two master emotions. Positive thinking includes attitudes of forgiveness, modesty, and optimism.
The benefits of positive thinking begin from within your mind. When you come to terms with the fact that your happiness in this life depends on how you respond to outside forces, you truly unlock the key to elevation of consciousness.
The physical benefits are numerous. Positive thinkers overall have a stronger immune system and tend to have a longer lifespan. A study at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine analyzed 100,000 women, and found those who thought more positively had lower rates of both diabetes and mortality. The optimists studied had a 30% less chance of dying from heart disease and 23% less likely to die of cancer.
The mental benefits are far more impressive. Through neuroplasticity, the brain's structure literally changes to the desired emotion to take "dominance" in the brain. It is this phenomena that is responsible for depression. Depressed people alter their brains to send and receive more negative impulses. Positive people however, alter their brains in the opposite way.
When the brain is altered to experience more positive out comes and emotions, it literally manifests a happier more productive life. There is a correlation with thinking positively and an increase in self-respect. Many of the most positive people owe part of their happiness to the way they treat themselves. This means eating well, exercising, and sleeping well. As you begin to approach life with an increasing positive outlook, you will begin to notice and surround yourself with others that share your same views.
This literally becomes a never ending cycle of joy. Even the bad times in your life begin to not seem so bleak. Many report a feeling of enlightenment when they first begin consciously emitting a positive attitude. Luck changes and the universe begins to morph into a more positive reality due to the conditions you declare. A positive attitude allows you to morph your experience in this life to the maximum enjoyment.
You will become a beacon of love. Your infectious energy will radiate towards others. The fulfillment of enriching others will give you compounded happiness. There is no logical way that negativity can overcome positivity. As long as you feed this energy, there is no reason to fear, stress, or despair.
