Be Happy. Be Healthy. Mindset Matters.

There are three factors that come into play when you want to take steps to improve your health; the food you eat, the lifestyle choices you make, and your mindset. 

In this article we are going to explore mindset as it seems to trip up the best-intended health warriors. 

I know you have heard the saying, “You are what you think”? Well, it turns out there’s a lot of truth to that! Your mindset, or the way you think about things, can actually play a big role in keeping you healthy and happy. 

Let’s dive into how having a positive mindset can work wonders for your well-being.

  1. Believe in Yourself: When you believe in yourself, amazing things can happen! Positive thoughts can help you tackle, with confidence, the challenges that come with diet changes. Whether it’s giving up processed junk food or trying a new vegetable, having a can-do attitude can make a big difference in how you create lasting change.
  2. Stay Positive: Did you know that being happy and optimistic can actually boost your immune system? It’s true! When you look on the bright side of life, your body produces chemicals that help fight off germs, keeping you from getting sick as often. So, smile big and look for the silver lining, even on cloudy days!
  3. Think Healthy Thoughts: Your mind is a powerful thing. If you think healthy thoughts, you’re more likely to make healthy choices. Instead of focusing on what you can’t have, like sugary snacks or binge-watching Netflix, focus on all the yummy fruits and veggies you can enjoy and all the fun activities you can do outside with your friends.
  4. Reduce Stress: Stress can have a negative effect on your health. Anger, grief, depression, anxiety and worry disrupt digestion. Stress can make you feel tired and even lead to getting sick more often. If prolonged, negative thoughts can even greatly increase susceptibility to cancer. But guess what? You have the power to control your stress levels! By practicing mindfulness, deep breathing, or even just taking a break to do something you love, like chatting with an old friend or listening to music, you can keep stress at bay and feel better overall.
  5. Surround Yourself with Positivity: Just like how being around negative people can bring you down, being around positive people can lift you up! Hang out with friends who make you laugh, support you, and encourage you to be your best healthy self. And remember, you can be that positive influence for others, too!
  6. Know Your “Why”: Ever wonder why some people are really good at making healthy choices while others struggle? It often comes down to knowing your “why.” In other words, understanding why being healthy is important to you personally. Maybe you want to have lots of energy to hike your favorite national park, or you want to overcome a health issue, or perhaps you just want to feel confident in how you look. Whatever your reason, knowing your “why” can help you stay motivated and focused on making choices that support your health and well-being in the long run. Take some time to think about what being healthy means to you and why it matters. When you know your “why,” making healthy choices becomes a whole lot easier!

What does all of this mean? 

It means that by having a positive mindset, you can supercharge your health and happiness! Believe in yourself, stay positive, think healthy thoughts, reduce stress, surround yourself with positivity, and know your why. Your mind is a powerful tool, so use it to live your best life!

Keep smiling, keep believing in yourself, and place mindset out front when making healthy changes that last. You’ve got this!
