I wish more people understood that the way we think controls our mind, body and spirit. That’s why it’s important that we don’t only nourish our body with great food, but we also nourish our minds with positive thoughts.
Ever heard an older country person get frustrated listening to nonsense conversation and say, “You aint gonna kill me!”
Well, my Grandma was the queen of that phrase! I didn’t understand it when I was young, but Grandma was spitting real game. Our emotions control our overall health. I get told often to ignore when people say ignorant or offensive things to me. Ignoring people, or biting my tongue is not a healthy way for ME personally to deal with it. If that works for you, well fine, but my mental health comes first. I am one of those people whose thoughts will manifest and drive me nuts and because “I aint letting nobody kill me”, as my Grandma use to say. I let those thoughts out quickly, no matter who it is that brought those emotions on.
There have been studies that correlate the following emotions to these conditions.
Chronic Back Pain
Mitral Valve Prolapse
High Blood Pressure
It’s important that we learn how to release these emotions before your body is forced to deal with them.
