Positivity: Post #9--Final Words
Final Words on Positivity: Take a moment right now. Close your eyes and think of something or someone you love. Stay with that vision for about one minute. You’ve just injected yourself with natural hormones that make you happier and healthier. Chances are now better than before that exercise that if someone at work brought you a new project to consider, you’d now be just a bit more open-minded than close-minded about considering it. Also, you have a slightly better chance (than before the imaging exercise) of not catching a cold than before you had that image (but don’t push it by hanging around with people who have one!). And, if something happened that was a real setback in your life, you’d be better prepared to bounce back from it. All that said, positivity won’t cure tooth decay! You’ll still have to brush your teeth. But engaging in positive activities regularly and with discipline will increase your likelihood to view brushing as a more enjoyable process and make you grateful for that healthy smile.
