What we say and think matters. Our minds are powerful tools that help to shape our reality and how we feel. The more we focus on something, the more energy we invest into it, therefore, the more it grows.
When it comes to our health, what do we want to feed? What is moving through our body that we wish to highlight? If we are constantly sitting in pain and thinking about our discomfort, could we be intensifying it?
What if we brought more awareness to our thoughts and tried to reframe them? In place of, "I am tired," or "I am in pain," we were to say to ourselves, "I am full of energy," or "I am strong and healthy."? This may feel unnatural at first, but our brain is sending messages to our bodies and our bodies respond. What messages do you want to send?
