The Medicine of Positive Thinking and Peace
By Remez Sasson
It is a well known fact that stress, anxiety, tension, worries and fears can hurt your health, not only your physical health, but also your mental and emotional health.
These negative states put strain on your nerves and on your body, and produce poisons in your body and in your blood stream. They disturb your concentration and attention, and sometimes, produce various ailments and health problems, which require expert help, treatments, or the taking of medications.
Many men and women nowadays, suffer from stress and strain and from their symptoms. There are so many factors in today's life that cause stress, anxiety, worries and fears. Some of the factors are problems at work, difficulties in relationships, lack of money, not having a job or the fear of losing it and health problems.
Often, anxiety, stress, strain and panic are caused by irrational fears, negative thoughts and expectations, being too much affected by what people say, what you read in the newspaper and what you see on TV, and sometimes due feelings of lack of security and safety.
If these conditions persist, stress and anxiety turn into a habit, and then a vicious circle is created, which increases the state of inner peace and lack of happiness.
The question is, why people bring themselves into such a state? True, in some cases the causes for stress and anxiety might be physical, and require medical treatment, but most cases are due to one's way of thinking and mental habits, and this is something that can be changed.
Why not try to change your thinking habits, think more positively, learn to gain some peace of mind, and refuse to let your moods and state of mind get affected by external causes?
You might not believe this is possible, but it is possible!
Isn't it better and more satisfying to be able to avoid negative thinking and thoughts that make you feel stressed and anxious? Isn't it better to be able to stay calm, relaxed and in control of yourself, even in difficult and stressful conditions? These are preventive means that can keep you happy and healthy, physically, emotionally and mentally.
There are physical treatments and medications, and there are also other sorts of "medications", such as inner peace, positive thinking, and changing one's way of thinking. These are "medicines" without side effects, and they do not require a prescription.
Instead of letting this negative situation continue, or trying to resolve it through medicinal or psychological treatments, why not learn to overcome and avoid being in a mental and emotional condition that directs you towards a life of stress and strain, doctors and pills?
Here are a few simple things you can do:
