Think and Grow Well

It is important to your health to keep a positive attitude. Your mental attitude is directly connected to your physical state. You've heard the saying "you are as young as you feel." It turns out there is something to it.
Your attitude affects your body down to the cellular level. Your cells are intelligent. They listen to you. Tell yourself you are greatly ill and your cells will begin to act accordingly. When you believe something terrible is going to happen to you, your cells respond with tension, rapid heartbeat and pulse, and an increase in the flow of hormones and chemicals that prepare you for an emergency. These responses can be harmful if they are triggered unnecessarily or too often.
On the other hand, a positive attitude can help create a state of health and well-being. Each time a negative thought or feeling comes over you, counter it with a positive one. Keep it up and it will become a healthy habit. Your cells will reward you with health and mental fitness.
