++Every thought has a physical Effect onyour cells. Chemical Reactions areproduced throughout the body bythoughts / emotions
++ Medical Aspects Secretion of hormones from various glands controls our life Emotional State can become imbalanced (Positively / Negatively) with over / under secretion of non-adrenaline body hormones. Thoughts (bad or good) act on the brain to release the neuro-transmitters that effect mood or health and physical response in the body.
++ Medical Aspects Neuro-transmitters which enhance attention and pleasure is “Dopamine” and which reduces fear and worry is “Serotonin”. If some one is under stress, heart beat increases and body releases powerful stress hormones Epinephrine, Cartisol and Adrenalin, which are negative and have ill effect. In case of positive people, secretion of negative hormones gets checked and health remains stable even under stressful situations.
++Effects of Negative ThinkingSome effects of Negative Thinking: Sleep Disturbance Anxiety, Depression, Lower pain thresholds High BP & risk of Heart disease Damaged Immunity Lower energy level etc.
++Advantages of Positive Thinking Increase in optimism & Happiness Experience Internal bliss Start seeing “Half Glass Filled“ instead of “Half Glass Empty” Increase in resilience Increase in enthusiasm and energy levels Enhancement in leadership skills
++Advantages of Positive Thinking Enhancement in determination to succeed Improvement in health, decrease in stress thus less BP and Heart Attack Increase in brand equity Tendency to appreciate others increases thus less jealous feeling . Leads to self-actualization – Maslow hierarchy of needs

++ Plus Attitude and Active Life Active Life of Human being is roughly 30 years i.e. 2.6 Lac hr. (If we work for 12 hr/day, balance life is 15 Years i.e. 1.3 Lac Hr.) In case of negative attitude during 50% time, the plus active life is reduced to 15 years. So effectively 30 years are reduced to 15 years. If we try to improve our mental plus attitude to 75%, the span of active life can be increased to 23 years.
