Is looking at life through rose-coloured glasses a good thing?
To answer that let me quote cell biologist Bruce Lipton PhD.
“You can choose what to see. You can filter your life with rose-colored beliefs that will help your body grow or you can use a dark filter that turns everything black and makes your body/mind more susceptible to disease. You can live a life of fear or live a life of love. You have the choice! But I can tell you that if you choose to see a world full of love, your body will respond by growing in health. If you choose to believe that you live in a dark world full of fear, your body’s health will be compromised as you physiologically close yourself down in a protection response”.
Millions of people die each year from illnesses that could be prevented by addressing their emotional health. If we change how you think, how you feel and what you believe then we can change your physical health. It is a shame doctors don’t spend more time on helping you feel happier and be more positive. Without the aid of medication I might add, as these treat the symptoms and not the cause.
Some people find it easy to look at life through rose-coloured glasses and others have to work hard to do so. Personally, I do find that it takes continual work. The mind is programmed to be negative and fearful as a default setting and it keeps wanting to slip back into that mode. I find its important to keep a constant watch on my thoughts and use the many tools I have for staying positive and happy – and therefore healthy.
I you need any help with, this many of the tools I use are in my book ‘Heightening Your Happiness’, and of course I help people in private sessions.
