Posted by on 8:38 am in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Coping With Cancer And Putting Positive Energy First

Maintaining a positive outlook is reported to be a fierce weapon when fighting a battle against a terminal disease like cancer. Letting go of negative energy can help foster positive energy, which may have healing properties and therapeutic benefits so you can survive cancer. Focus on channeling only positive vibes and healing energy when fighting illness or when helping others cope with medical diagnoses. Some ways to embrace a positive attitude during this challenging time include the following: Re-frame negative thoughts. It is believed that negative energy attracts negative energy; cutting back on the unproductive and non-therapeutic thoughts that cross your mind can create more healing, positive energy. This takes time to perfect, and it is natural to get down during medical issues and illness. Try to catch yourself when you begin thinking negatively, and try to re-frame the thought into a more positive and productive message. Remain in the present. Dwelling on the past or worrying about the future is pointless. You cannot change what has happened any more than you can control what is to occur in the future. Try to focus on today, this moment, and remain in the present. This can help prevent worrying or ruminating about your illness, which can lead to more negative energy. Practice mindfulness. Make it a point to take pleasure in life’s simplest joys. Remind yourself of things that bring happiness, such as the smell of spring, a loved one’s touch, or a favorite food.  Become a magnet for positive energy. Consider some alternative ways to attract positive energy during your illness. Some individuals believe in the healing properties of daily affirmations, while others may find that positive energy plates can help surround themselves with a therapeutic aura. Be open to ways that may seem unconventional, but that may help you adapt to a more positive mindset and healing energy. Let go of negative people. The people that you choose to be around can have an impact on your healing energy. Let go of anyone that isn’t supportive and positive; this might be challenging when those closest to you are discouraging or let you down. Put your energy into fostering relationships with people that lift you up and that make you feel stronger for the battle you are fighting. There is some research that indicates the mindset impacts physical health and well-being that a positive attitude can have healing properties during times of illness.

In the business world, confidence is key. For a small business owner, it’s even more important. If you’re a small business owner, there will be times you’ll need to be out of your comfort zone and appear confident in the process. Being able to speak confidently and clearly can open a lot of doors, and not being confident in yourself can lead to lost opportunities. Here’s a look at a few ways you can help improve your self confidence. Focus on your body language Your body language says much more than your words can say. The way you present yourself is critical to having confidence. When you’re speaking with someone, keep your back straight and keep your body aligned with theirs.

Celebrate the small things As a small business owner, you’re probably very well aware of the fact that everything does not always go perfectly.
