    I knew people growing up that believed living in fear was the same thing as being “cautious” “aware” “smart” “informed”.
    They always stayed on top of the news,and without discernment over the sources, took reports/studies/authority to be factual.

    Im sure they mostly are.

    I also knew people that didnt want to hear when some new virus was labeled, what the life expectancy of someone with their habits was, or what the chances were a storm would hit a month from now. Basically they took things as they came, lived for today, and rarely experienced drama. Those people bored me,lol.

    I watched over time as the people who want to shout “it can happen to you!” found comfort in other fear-mongers, and people who escaped the drama had no desire to even learn about it.
    Pretty much like-attracts-like, and birds-of-a-feather….you get it.

    What I have come to realize is that the more I am discerning with who and what I give my attention to, the more I have good days over bad days, the more I see improvements over “what-ifs”.

    I read the encouraging information now, because its my experience that my attention on the positive is serving me much better than my attention on “but if you dont take this,rotate that, buy this,have this test done,ect” .
    Seriously, I spent alot of money and got increasingly depressed.

    You’ll notice that for all the tests and supplements and routines, there is no one in line waiting to post that they are cured (meaning no preventative supplements).

    So take these articles into consideration. Humor them.
    If nothing else, if you choose not to change your perspective, atleast these articles took time away from worrying more.

    “Optimism seems to reduce stress-induced inflammation and levels of stress hormones such as cortisol. It may also reduce susceptibility to disease by dampening sympathetic nervous system activity and stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system. The latter governs the so-called “rest and digest” response – the opposite of fight-or-flight.”

    “Assessing a patient’s mood and attitude may now give orthopaedic surgeons a better forecast in determining recovery.” http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/46615.php

    An article 10 years ago!
    “The scientific recognition of a mind-body connection in health is gathering steam. Once the purview of new-age books that claim to show the path to healing, the evidence is in the rise in clinical trials: The NIH last year funded $143 million of mind-body research, with estimates of $149 million for 2004 and $153 million for 2005.”

    Candace Pert = brilliant.
    “More recent research by Candice Pert, a neuropharmacologist, explained the workings of neuropeptides, the chemical messengers that are essential to the mind-body relationship. She found them on both the brain’s cell walls and on those of the immune system. Their presence in both demonstrates their close relationship, which means the brain and emotions are closely related to the immune system as messages are transmitted back and forth.

    Pert also showed how the endocrine system with its hormones plays a part. Simply put, as long as it is all balanced, health is maintained. But, as Cannon showed, once a stressor causes an emotional imbalance, the immune system suffers and disease can overcome it.”

    Why you might want to choose uplifting material:
    “The new biology takes this further. It is not just the power of suggestion, but the actual thoughts and words chosen by the person which changes brain chemistry. We have 50 trillion cells in our body which communicate through neurochemical and vibration signals. Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, has done a large amount of work in this field, which is called epigenetics.

    The word epigenetics literally means “above the genes”, i.e., the mind controls the genes. Dr. Lipton says our minds can re-write our genes. He compares the cell to a computer chip, as each is a bit of information. Both can receive information through different routes and cause a reaction.

    Epigenetics changes our paradigm of control. The old physics believed the universe is based on matter. The new biology is based on the idea that the universe is governed by energy.

    “An experiment done by one university showed the effects of the emotional state on how the body responds to cholesterol. Four actors were hired to play two couples who had been close friends for years. They were getting together to share a meal (pizza) and talk about fond memories. A blood sample was taken prior to the meal, and another sample after the meal. The blood (after the meal) was then tested for cholesterol. Granted, it was there, but later, when tested again, it had “disappeared.” Something in the blood had broken it down.

    The experiment was repeated, but this time each person was to act as if they were almost mortal enemies, and anger and resentment permeated the meal. The same amounts of pizza were then consumed by each person, complete with the same precisely measured amount of cheese. This time, the cholesterol did not dissipate within the blood sample. Remember, the only variable was the state of mind, yet the cholesterol (lipid) in the blood was measurably affected.

    It becomes evident then that to really be healthy and do the best we can, we have to take into account beliefs and mental attitude concerning food.”

    I purposefully left out all the newest info that sounded too new-agey for people to get into,even if it is supported by a science-based outlet and audience. I figured those that are interested have already seen

    Nice to hear that you gained this insight too, CatLady!

    It’s something that is very hard, and often even impossible, to explain to those who are in a fearful or antagonistic state of mind. It’s kind of self-psycho-therapy that really helps change one’s attitude, one’s perspective, one’s state of mind – and, therefore, one’s well-being and one’s health.

    Right!!!

    Remember the other discussion about stress? What you are describing here is like a double-edged sword: you are reducing the stress that comes your way, and you are changing the way you react to the remaining stress.

    This is indeed nothing new.

    In fact, I’ve just finished the book Thinking, Fast and Slow of Daniel Kahneman. He did a lot of experiments to investigate the effect of human attitude on well-being. One of his experiments involved asking the subjects to put a pencil between their teeth. The pencil was from left to right, the subject had to gently bit it in the middle (just enough to prevent the pencil from falling), and they were not allowed to touch the pencil with their lips.

    This was a trick to make the subjects smile without them being aware that they were smiling.

    But even this kind of a very twisted smile made subject feel more happy. Their increased happiness showed in lots of experimental results.

    That’s how simple it can be to radically change your life – go figure!

    By the way, this was found over 40 years ago…

    Correct. And not only concerning food…

    I quit following the news on TV years ago. Before I made that decision, I felt that viewing the 8 o’clock news was a “must”. But this “must” determined my evening schedule, which caused me stress without me being aware of it.

    Once I quit, this “I must watch the news” stress disappeared. Only then did I realise that I had subjected myself to stress all those years. I didn’t notice the stress until it disappeared…

    Also, I got a lot of free time, because my evening was no longer interrupted by this “plight”. That too was a stress reducer. In addition, my adrenalin levels weren’t being raised each evening when I was watching distressing news. That too was a good thing.

    The only disadvantage is that I sometimes hear news later than others. But that’s not a big problem. I hear about very important news soon enough through other channels. And if I miss something – so what? I don’t care anymore. I’m much more relaxed than I used to be.

    Congratulations, CatLady, for starting going this road too! You’ve made a really important, literall life-changing discovery!

    You are so right. Thank you.

    I dont watch the news either,Floggi.
    Anything I need to know is told to me by well-meaning but very depressing family members,hahaha.

    You know, when I was in my teens I was an avid reader of Ernest Holmes and other authors of New Thought. I read books about Meher baba, Babaji, Sai Baba. I read books by the St Germain Press about messages from Masters met atop mountains….
    There is a common thread that runs through all of it,
    and when you catch it, you feel peace.

    The problem is that it can escape you,lol.
    If not put into practice, it is so easy to forget, and the scaffolding that once supported the creation of your life is gone and you wind up with a wonky house LOL

    I need some renovations, my friend 😉
