Are you Positive?
Suddenly this question has become scary!
All these years, we have been advising everyone to be Positive!
And now no one wants to be branded “Positive”!
If you are “Positive” ,I don’t want to be in your company!
What a change that Covid has brought!
Indeed, there is a need to understand the linkage between the ‘positive’ Positive and the ‘negative’ Positive!
The ‘positive’ Positive is the state of Mind , while the ‘negative’ Positive is the state of the Body .
If one keeps a Positive state of mind, there is a good chance that the body test will be what we want : Negative
It has become very challenging, however, to remain positive mentally, when we are bombarded with negative news, 24*7.
It is ,of course, important to know about what is happening around us.
It is imperative that we decide on our actions in light of those information.
But it should be NOTHING more than that !
The negativity starts living in my mind when I start deeply thinking about it.
And more I think, more intense is the feeling associated with it
This starts affecting our immune system
It becomes weak…
And creates a ground for my body to lose the fight against the virus ..
And turn Negative
The effect of Mind on Body is very well accepted by modern science.
Secretion of various hormones which make us mentally strong and positive are triggered by various actions:
- Physical exercise prompts Endorphin secretion which is a natural pain killer
- Sense of appreciation leads to Dopamine secretion…a ‘feel good’ hormone
- If you help someone in a self-less way, you are sure to produce Serotonin…….which generates feeling of ‘well being’
- If you show genuine love and kindness… Oxytocin secretion is initiated. It is popularly known as ‘love hormone’
These hormones help build a strong immune system
So let the print media, TV channels, social media do what they want…
We take only what is required.
Spend rest of the time in producing nice hormones
And be Positive….. in the right way!
