Honolulu Osteopathic Physician Explains the Importance of Positive Thinking, Honolulu, Hawaii

An osteopathic physician focuses on preventing injuries by turning to their patients' lifestyles. They understand that a healthy mind and spirit are just as important as a healthy body. At IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, HI, sports medicine and wellness coaching is a principal part of what an osteopathic physician must focus on. This has made them privy to the healing differences between their positive thinking and negative thinking patients.

Numerous studies have shown that people who are able to see the world in a positive light also tend to have effective ways of dealing with stress. Since stress management is an integral part of achieving numerous health benefits, such as an increased lifespan, lower rates of depression, sick less often, and a reduced risk of developing cardiovascular disease, the osteopathic physicians at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health want you to know how to improve your positive thinking. Here are a few ways:

  • osteopathic physicianPick One Area Of Your Life Where Negative Thinking Is Most Prominent: Instead of trying to change your complete way of thinking all at once, focus on one area where you always seem to be negative. Doing this will make the changes you hope to achieve more likely to last in the long-run.
  • Self-Evaluate Thoughts Each Day: Any time you find yourself thinking negative thoughts about the chosen area of your life, take a time out to reflect how those thoughts could be given a positive spin. For example, if a mistake brought out these critical thoughts, is there anything that could be learned from the mistake to avoid it a second time?
  • Do Not Ignore Reality, Become Proactive: Some people think the only way to become an optimist is by chanting daily mantras. The truth is that optimists and pessimists are separated by how they approach life. A pessimist tends to give up when faced with a difficult situation. An optimist, on the other hand, knows it will be difficult, but they come up with ways to face it and move on.

Becoming a positive thinker is not an overnight change. It takes a lifetime of practicing. Fortunately, an osteopathic physician at IMUA Orthopedics & Health is waiting to help you start seeing the world in a brighter light.
