Our Thoughts Shape our Lives

It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of society today. Always on the go, too busy to relax, checking e-mails, answering calls, picking up so and so, work, school, kids, cook, clean, gym…anxious about what’s to come..are things going to work out? Thinking about something you said a few minutes ago or a few years ago..I should have…could have…what if…does he like me?..do I look cute?..Do I look fat?…the list goes on and on and on. The human mind creates between 50,000-70,000 thoughts a day. That’s between 35-48 thoughts per minute! The majority of those are thoughts from the day before, just plain repetitive, or mostly negative. The good news is you’re mind is like any other muscle on your body. You can become aware of your thoughts..practice quieting the mind..eventually silencing it..and in turn gain back control over your mind rather than allowing your thoughts to run around chaotically and run your show. Why are your thoughts important? Besides the obvious reasons, your thoughts create a feeling or an emotion. These emotions are our inner guide! By paying attention to our feelings, we can know if were on the right path, so to speak.

In the midst of our busy every day lives, the way we feel is the single most important factor that most people are missing. Today’s society has led us to believe that the most important things are the material…money, cars, homes, clothes…however, it is becoming clear today that even the people who have more of these material possessions then they could do anything with, are still something missing in their lives. Of course the idea of having more money, bigger houses, etc, seems like it would satisfy all of the desires we feel, those emotions would be temporary…Rather than feeling a sense of lack now, it is possible to achieve all of the feelings of satisfaction, aliveness, and fulfillment even before those manifestations are physical. And the manifestation of the emotion is key! All around wellness will guarantee the best feeling You and allow a smooth flow of life to flow through you and to you throughout your lifetime.

Wellness is an evolutionary process, that begins with becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy life that will allow your true You to shine brighter then ever. Wellness is significant to us as humans because all of our activities, thoughts and feelings affect our well-being. By feeling our best, we act out of those good feelings, rather than acting out through feelings of exhaustion, stress or worry.  Pay attention to how you feel and CHOOSE to feel good now!
