Most of us would agree that having a 正 attitude is good for our 健康. Stress is bad, being happy is good. Simple enough.
But while we believe this, we tend to “stop” that belief when it comes to “real” disease. We think a 正 attitude can have a general impact on our 健康, but the moment there’s a “diagnosis”, we discard that belief and laser lock in on the diagnosis, and the fact that it’s “real”.
How far are you willing to take your belief (if you have it!) that a 正 attitude can help the body heal?
Does it apply to other people, but not to you? (I’ve seen this happen…”Oh, I’ll tell Suzy she needs to be more 正 and it will help her body heal that pain, but MY thing is different.”)
193 健康y volunteers went through an interview to determine the levels of 正 and negative feelings that they felt in their lives, and shortly after, were exposed to one of the viruses using nasal drops. (Brave volunteers if you ask me… I hope they paid them well!)
Those with a more 正 outlook on life were much more resistant to sickness than those who had a negative outlook! (Read the full study 这里）
It’s crazy if you think about it… 这里 was this VIRUS, this real thing, that we’ve all experienced the real consequences of, and how long it lasts, and how much it sucks, and… being 正 could stop it from taking root!
Well… being 正 was the cure for many of the people in this study.
I know, it seems silly. But you have at this moment, and in every moment in your life going forward, the opportunity to choose to be more 正, and now you know that EVERY time you make that choice, again and again, you are LITERALLY making yourself 健康ier!
My challenge for you today is to look for those places in your life where you’ve been limiting the power of being 正, of releasing stress, and notice the limitation you’ve created for yourself. “哦，它可以在___上使用，但不能在___上使用。”
在您尚未应用“点击”的生活中寻找挑战，并立即在此处使用。即使它与关于普通感冒或流感的观念甚至与您的身体健康没有直接关系，也可以使用“拍打”来减轻压力 任何东西 将使您更具韧性！

P.S. The study also identified other studies that have shown the benefits of 正 emotions. From the text of the study:
For example, 正 emotional style (PES) was found to be associated with…
(1) 降低 rates of stroke among noninstitutionalized elderly
(2) 降低 rates of rehospitalization for coronary problems
