Last month’s article stressed that the most important part of retirement was your health. You agreed overwhelmingly and that money was a close second.
Out of catastrophic events, most, if not all, of our health issues stem from our thinking thoughts that don’t serve us well. Everything that stirs up our negative thoughts – self-esteem, relationships, stress – lowers our immune system and lets illness in.
Turn on the news, read the paper, or check your portfolio, and it’s not hard to have great concern about our lives and world today. Today’s political and finance chaos is the worst I’ve seen in my lifetime, and the good news is that it will come back around sooner or later and most of us will learn great things from these troubled times.
Our economy in this country is quit cyclical. We go into living abundantly, out of the abundance period comes chaos, and out of chaos period comes discipline then back to abundant. So… “Don’t worry. Be happy.” Embracing that thought will be good for your health.
How do we get out of the fear, worry, and stress syndrome so that we can live happier and healthier lives?
First thing to do is not to create fear and worries about “what if” or “what could be.” We are constantly being bombarded with negativity in our news, conversation, and our email. It is easy to get caught up with the drama of it all. We all seem to have a habit of seeing all the woes in the world and thinking they are ours. This is definitely not good for our mental and physical health.
I’m not suggesting that you bury your head in the sand but to understand what is going on and get out of the fear, worry and drama as soon as possible. Then you’re able to get creative with a clear head and move forward.
Now state what problems or challenges are affecting you right now … today. Ask yourself, what part are you able to do something about and what part is out of your control. Write a list of at least three things you can do and start to implement them now. A plan always can give you some control that can affect the quality of your life and give you some peace of mind.
It’s true; there is a lot of turmoil in our world today. We need to stop ourselves from getting caught up in the drama of it all, for our health sake, and instead look for the pearls of wisdom that are there for us to find. Be Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous!
