Does your head hang low?

Does it wobble no and no?

Are your ‘brows in a knot?

Are your ‘brows in a bow?

Can you toss livin’ o’er your shoulder?

And sit there like a boulder.

Does your head hang low?

It is amazing that you can take two people and put them in the same situation and yet they will react differently.  Some people take things in a negative way and others, in a positive way, even if what happened was horrible.

A Complaint Free World: How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life You Always Wanted

Complaint Free World is a book that works on getting the negative thoughts out of your head and making it a habit to thinking positive.

Postitive Thinking - Calgary chiropractor

If you are not already positive thinking, you can train yourself to do so.  It takes time and practice and effort.  Put in the time and you’ll see the results.

Negative thinking is harmful for us physically as well as physiologically.  Negative thinkers are usually stooping and present themselves in a poor posture, which in time, is going to manifest as stress in the spine and we are going to see early degenerative changes.   Negative (chronic stress) thinkers also release the hormone cortisol.  This chronic release has a negative effect physiologically.

Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream (like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects, such as:

  • Impaired cognitive performance
  • Suppressed thyroid function
  • Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia
  • Decreased bone density
  • Decrease in muscle tissue
  • Higher blood pressure
  • Lowered immunity and inflammatory responses in the body, slowed wound healing, and other health consequences
  • Increased abdominal fat, which is associated with a greater amount of health problems than fat deposited in other areas of the body. Some of the health problems associated with increased stomach fat are heart attacks, strokes, the development of metabolic syndrome, higher levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and lower levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL), which can lead to other health problems!

As you can see, there are benefits to thinking POSITIVE!  Do something about it and checkout this book, A Complaint Free World!
