Power of Positive Thinking - Inspire Wellness & Physical Therapy

Power of Positive Thinking

By December 11, 2018Health, Wellness

Do you know that you can change your overall outlook through the power of positive thinking or envisioning positive thoughts? We call it the power of visualization.

A study looking at brain patterns in weightlifters found that the patterns activated when a weightlifter lifted hundreds of pounds were similarly activated when they only imagined lifting.  In some cases, research has revealed that mental practices are almost effective as true physical practice, and that doing both is more effective than either alone.

What does that mean for you and your health goals?

If you don’t feel like working towards your goal, visualize yourself doing so.

  • Visualize yourself going to the gym
  • Visualize yourself and how you’ll feel after finishing your workout
  • Visualize doing some meal prep for the week
  • Visualize eating a salad for lunch 3 days this week

The health benefits of Visualization include:

  • Stress reduction
  • Motivation to reach your potential
  • Increased focus
  • Boosted confidence and self esteem
