Did you know that what and how you think can affect your physical health?
Unhealthy thoughts, stress, and past hurts leads to depression, anxiety, heart disease, diabetes, and many other physical ailments.
You have heard you are what you eat, well that saying is also true about you are what you think.
The word that comes to mind is self-fulfilling prophecy. If you think you are going to be sick, then you are likely to become sick. If you think you are not going to amount anything in life, then you don’t.
Thinking negatively about yourself can manifest physically in many areas of your body.
One example of how negative emotional thoughts affect the body is discussed in the article, Your emotions can be the primary cause of your plantar fasciitis – and the key to unlocking the healing in your feet. According to Maureen Minnehan Jones, the foot is a ‘shock absorber ‘and when we constantly do things for others, not ourselves, and take on the responsibilities for holding every together for others, we are absorbing these negative feelings that then can affect the foot causing plantar fasciitis. This is when the plantar fascia ligament, the fibrous tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes, becomes weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed), causing your heel or the bottom of your foot to hurt when you stand or walk.
God designed us with our mind, body, emotions, and spirit all intertwined. If one part is ill, the entire body does not function as well as it was designed to. Your body responds to the way you feel, think, and act. It is called the mind/body connection.
To get to the root of a physical problem, the investigative process usually starts with looking at what may be happening both emotionally and spiritually.
So often we hold onto our past hurts, struggles, and situations. We don’t want to be stuck in the past but we have never truly learned how to let go and move forward. Then physical ailments develop in our body and instead of getting to the emotional and spiritual root; we go to doctors to deal with the symptoms and not the cause – the why under the why.
We tend to then think negatively about ourselves which causes false beliefs and identities about ourselves that leads to self-defeating behaviors. These in turn become habits. Those habits are the ones we need to change with self-promoting habits.
Have you ever noticed if you say something positive and good about yourself how that makes you feel? Right now take a minute and say to yourself I am special, I matter, and I have value. Observe yourself in a mirror as you say those things to yourself. You will be amazed at how your body perks up. You stand up taller, your face has more excitement in your expression, and your whole stature changes.
Seeing those results in the exterior of your body is so encouraging. Can you imagine how that affects the interior of your body as well?
