The Power of Thought? Well, the very title of the piece started me thinking. In fact, I thought about it for days. A thought can be many things - positive, negative, inspiring, preventative, cognitive, reactive, meditative, original or not, motivational, damaging and even thoughtless- if that thought is put into action or spoken without consideration. The adjectives seem endless. And thoughts have consequences.
Sometimes there is a trigger for depression. Life changing events, such as bereavement, losing your job or even having a baby, can bring it on and it can happen to anyone. People with a family history are also more likely to experience it themselves. But you can become depressed for no obvious reason.
Stress by definition is, according to the dictionary, 1. pressure or force. 2. conditions of hardship, trouble, etc. Hmmm, it’s the etc. bit that sets me thinking!
I think we all have our own interpretation of what the word stress means to us individually. As a current TV ad informs us, it’s been around since our time began and it’s how we deal with it is what counts. I can agree with that, but not perhaps the ads’ recommendation, although that might be appropriate for some.
Something very unusual thing happened to me this year - I got a cold!
I am normally a very healthy person and pride myself on my good health, being a Touch for Health therapist and instructor.
Well it is said that pride comes before a fall and fall I did, and felt very miserable about the whole thing.
I also knew why I got ill and basically it was because I overstretched myself, got overtired and didn’t give myself the nurturing I needed. Silly me!
Is that all there is to getting ill? There are so many factors to consider, but certainly at this time of year, people seem more vulnerable and susceptible to dis-ease.
