We all agree that positive thinking helps leading a good life. Laughing and smiling are ways to produce endorphins, while expressing gratitude and compassion allows us to feel part of the larger human universe. All this gives us a sense of well being. Spiritual teachers, philosophers and doctors say: having a head and heart filled with positivity helps us to live better lives, from all points of view.

It helps us, first of all, to attract favorable events, since like responds to like. If we emit a positive vibration, we will recall equally positive events, acting on the law of synchronicity and possible futures. Positive thinking will thus be the cause of positive events, and therefore of further positive thinking, according to a mechanism clearly explained by the principles of spiritual Physics.
But it is also from the point of view of physical health that thinking positively “works” and in recent decades a new science, the psycho-neuro-endocrine-immunology, abbreviated to PNEI, (thankfully) has undertaken the aim to prove it. Yes, according to many researchers, positive thinking and optimism have a value not only philosophical and moral but even scientific.

Bad stress and good stress

It all starts with stress. With this term we indicate a stimulus, usually negative, which causes a reaction in us as a response to an environmental request. Stress can be affective, social, cultural, biological and so on. It can provoke positive reactions, in which case we talk about eustress or negative reactions, and then we talk about distress, depending on which neuroendocrine pathway has been activated. Since the eighties of the last century, following numerous observations on epidemiological and experimental events, carried out by scientists all over the world, the existing connections between the nervous system, the endocrine system and the immune system have finally appeared in all their evidence. Thus the psycho-neuro-endocrine-immunology states that stress is able to alter the levels of circulating antibodies in our body, influencing the biological processes within us. Put simply, PNEI demonstrates how positive stress, such as the things that make us feel good, positively affects our health.
So, the smile on our face, our humor, and optimism are not only an attitude that denotes an open vision towards life, a right education towards ourselves and towards others, but they are a way to heal ourselves and find balance.
Sometimes, instead, we live them almost as an obligation, as a kind of precept to be respected because others are pleased to see us serene and because in the end, the optimists are welcomed by all, while the pessimists are more difficult to bear. 🙂

Your smile is contagious

We live in conditions of positive stress when we try to see the positive side of things, when we encourage a friend, when we express confidence in ourselves and in others. More generally, we produce eustress when, faced with a situation that puts us to the test, we decide to live it as a challenge, looking for the best way to solve it, instead of resigning ourselves to the worst and repeating that we are unlucky!

When we behave correctly, we not only improve our mood and that of those around us, but we send precise signals to our organism, which in this way activates a self-healing process that allows us to be healthy.
That’s why positive thinking is worthwhile! It’s not just a way to honor life but it is a way to take care of ourselves.
Next time, before going to the pharmacy to buy a supplement, we can try to put ourselves in front of the mirror and smile while looking at our face and our eyes. Initially maybe it will cost us a little effort, but then our laughing image will become contagious.

And what is more beautiful and more natural than being infected by oneself?
