As I was going through my daily gossip website routine reading People, US Magazine and TMZ I came across this gem: http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-body/news/goldie-hawn-67-shows-off-fit-figure-in-workout-gear-picture-2013187
Goldie Hawn looks amazing at 67. In fact, a hell of a lot better than this 34 year old! But what she said really got me thinking because, let’s be real, I get most of my inspiration from gossip mags!
In the article Goldie Hawn says: “When you are in a healthier state of mind, the body reacts,” she said at the time. “So, when you’re feeling joyful, the body actually will react that way … So I say, cut the negative, focus on the positive, habituate the positive thinking.”
Then I did a little research and found an article by the uber respected Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/positive-thinking/SR00009
In summary the article points out: One theory is that having a positive outlook enables you to cope better with stressful situations, which reduces the harmful health effects of stress on your body. It’s also thought that positive and optimistic people tend to live healthier lifestyles — they get more physical activity, follow a healthier diet, and don’t smoke or drink alcohol in excess.
Positive thinking…hmmmm. Can we really control our minds by replacing the negative with the positive? What say you…
