Mind Over Matter

Updated: Feb 2

“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.”— Willie Nelson


  • Practice Guided Imagery


  • Practice Gratitude and Thanksgiving

  • Keep a gratitude journal writing down-I am grateful for_______ x 3 per day. Practicing Gratitude is one of the most powerful weapons to challenge negative thinking and helps you clarify what you value most.

  • Yoga for Gratitude

  • Pausing before meals to breathe and give thanks will stimulate your Para-sympathetic nervous system, which promotes “rest and digest”. Practice mindful eating, being aware of the colors, odors, taste, and texture of the meals.

  • Spend time in nature and the woods for Vitamin N

  • Practice Breath Work Techniques

  • Proper breathing techniques are beneficial for both physical and emotional health as these exercises help control random and runaway thoughts, improve the clarity of thought and enhance a sense of peace and calm.

  • Find your tribe and eliminate negative people.

  • Turn off the news and take a media fast.

  • Laugh More!

The words we speak to ourselves via our “self-talk” or thoughts are profoundly powerful dramatically affecting our health and well-being. Our genes respond to our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs.

Every time we have a thought our brain releases chemicals either for good or harm. If we are constantly thinking negative thoughts, our brain will stimulate the production of chemicals that will result in negative body symptoms and also diminish the activity of our higher brain centers that govern judgment, memory, and learning.

Conversely, if we are thinking positive thoughts of gratitude, hope, love, and joyful anticipation health will be created.

Moment by moment you are changing the structure of your brain and the function of your body through your thinking. We are not helpless victims of our circumstances or our genetic predispositions. We have the power by our very thoughts to up-regulate positive biochemical pathways and the converse of course is also true.

Our mental response to the circumstances of our life has an enormous impact on our mental and physical health.

Now repeat after me:

“ I am strong, I am healthy, and I will overcome adversity”

Many Blessing,
