Apart from this, simple steps can be taken that will train your brain to focus on positive.
In this article, originally published on LinkedIn Pulse, Dr. Travis BradBerry shares insights and researches that will show you positivity in the whole new light.
While facing the failures and challenges, we have received goodwill advice for all of us to “remain positive”. The more challenging, the more glass-half full knowledge can be in the form of Polina-Ich and the Unreal. It is hard to get motivated to concentrate on positive when positiveness does not feel more than the thought of willpower
The real obstacle for positivity is that our brains are working hard to focus on the hazards and pay attention. We used to be alive to serve the human race, when we were hunters and hoarders, each day our immediate surroundings
It was already in existence. In today’s system, through the tendency of the mind, pessimism and negativity arise, unless it conflicts with it. These “threats” are supposed to increase the probability that things are going and / or are going to get worse.When the danger is hidden in the bushes and under the bushes, this system serves you well. When the danger is imagined and you spend two months, then you are confident that the project you are working on is floppy, this system gives you the reality that it is difficult to wreak havoc in your life.
Positiveness and Your Health
Pessimism is a problem because it is bad for your health. Many studies have shown that physiological and psychological are healthier than candidate pessimistic.
Martin Seligman at the University of Pennsylvania did extensive research on the subject. Selgm finds a lot of depression in those people, who give a disappointing quality of their failures in personal losses. However, extremists treated failure as a learning experience and believed that they could improve the future.
To investigate physical health, Seligman worked with a researcher from Dartmouth and Michigan University, who followed the age of 25 to 65 years to see that their pessimistic or optimistic levels of their overall health Were affected or correlated with Researchers found that the pessimistic ‘health became worse due to aging.
Saligram’s findings are similar to the research done by the Mayo Clinic, which is the heart level of the optimists and the lower life span. Although the precise mechanism through which pessimism affects health is not recognized, researchers at Yale and Colorado University found that pessimism is associated with tumors and weak immune responses to infection.
Researchers from Kentucky and Lewisville universities have tried to find optimistic and pessimistic injections with a virus to measure their immune response so far. Researchers hope that there was a strong immune response compared to pessimistic
Positivity and performance
Having a positive attitude is not good for your health. Martin Seligman also studied the connection between positiveity and performance. In a particular study, it measures the degree in which the insurance vendor was optimistic or pessimistic in his work, whether he could improve with his efforts due to the failure of the personal losses outside their control or circumstances. The extreme saleswoman has sold more than 37 percent more pessimism than the pessimistic, which was twice the time to leave the company during its first year of employment.
Seligman has studied positivism compared to someone, and he believes in the ability to change pessimistic ideas and trends with simple effort and knowledge. But Salgmann does not believe it. His research shows that people can change the tendency of pessimistic thinking in positive thinking through simple techniques that they make permanent changes in the long-term behavior of being discovered.
Your brain needs just a little help to defeat its negative inner voice. Here are two simple steps that can be taken to train your brain to focus on positive.
1. Facts different from the story.
The first step in learning to focus on positive is to learn how to stop negative self-talk in your tracks. The more you give negative thoughts and the more power you give, the more it is. Most of our negative thoughts are only – thoughts, not facts.
When you consider yourself negative and pessimistic things that call your inner voice, it’s time to stop and write them. Actually stop what you are doing and write down what you are thinking. Once you take a moment to slow down the negative momentum of your thoughts, then you will work more rationally and clearly in evaluating their truth. Assess these statements to evaluate whether they are genuinely realizable. You can bet that the statements are not correct, whenever you do not see the word like ever, always, worst, ever.
Do you really always lose your keys? Not at all Perhaps you often forget them, but most of the time you miss them. Will not you ever find a solution to your problem? If you are really stuck, then you are probably opposed to seeking help or if this is really a rude problem, then why are you wasting your time against the wall for beating your head? If your statements are still on the papers, then they look like facts that they can trust or take your friend or colleague, and see if he agrees with you or not. Then the truth will definitely come out.
When it seems that there is always nothing or it never happens, then it is only the tendency of the natural danger of your brain that increases the frequency or the severity of an incident. By identifying and labeling ideas by separating your thoughts from the facts, it will help you to avoid the cycle of negativity and move towards a positive new perspective.
2. Identify a positive
Now when you have self-defeating, a device to snap yourself with negative thoughts, it’s time to help your brain that you want to focus on it-positive

Any positive thought will help refinance your mind’s attention. When things are going well and your mind is good, it is relatively easy when things are getting worse and negative mindset has flooded your mind, it can be a challenge in these moments, about your day Think and identify a positive thing, no matter how small. If you can not think of anything from the present day, then consider the previous day or last week too. Or maybe there is an exciting event that you are looking forward to can focus on yourself.
The thing here is that you have to be positive, when you are ready to make changes in your mind, when your thoughts become negative in one step, you have imagined how the fact Be separated from different stories. To change the negative with one positive step is two. Once you identify a positive thought, then every time you rely on yourself, then pay attention to it. If this is proven difficult, then you can repeat the process of writing negative thoughts to defame your legitimacy, and then allow yourself to enjoy positive thoughts independently.
I know these two steps are unbelievably basically sound, but they have tremendous power because they teach their mind again so that a positive focus can be made. These steps break old habits, if you force them to use themselves
To move the natural tendency of the brain towards negative thoughts, we can all use some help to stay positive, keep these steps to use, and you can take advantage of physical, mental and performance, Come with a positive range.
