Drinking alcohol always made me feel depressed the following day. Then, in the morning I would make myself a cup of coffee, and that made me feel anxious. So, I was feeling depressed and anxious at the same time. So, that made more tasks in my day stressful. Decades later, I found Japanese green tea gave me a ‘calming’ energy.

I am not a mental health professional, so I have to be careful what I say. But, I do have experience in life and am entitled to my own opinion. I’ve lived many years and I think I know a few things. Some things I have learned the ‘hard way’. How does one learn best? Is it the easy way or the hard way?
‘For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time ’.
All I know is that at this point in my life I don’t have to be taught the same lesson twice! So, we learn our lessons and go on. Sometimes, you don’t get to apply ‘life lessons’ you’ve learned to similar circumstances or situations simply because they never again appear.
This is what I do that tends to ‘fix’ me…
- If you have trouble sleeping you may be drinking too much alcohol, caffeine and sugar (a physical symptom for me was my legs felt a restlessness by ‘twitching’ and ‘kicking’)
- I especially cut out sugar like refined and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
- This is only my opinion, but it seems to me somehow that anxiety, stress and depression are all linked together
- We all won’t live forever, so should we not ‘sweat the small stuff’?
- Unquestionably, life is hard
- So, maybe it’s something we better ‘get used to’?
- I meditate to ‘reboot’ me
- It does help make for a calmer mind and way of looking at the world, and only takes a few seconds…
We always learn new lessons. Call them ‘life lessons’ if you will. Every person if different. We all know that. What applies to one may certainly not apply to another. I don’t believe there is a general ‘fix’ for everyone.
But, what I’ve found for me is that thinking more positive thoughts has attracted and delivered many ‘good things’ into my life. Why not try it out for yourself? Thinking positive costs nothing.

This may seem more like a psychological question, but at the same time I believe it to be a philosophical question pondered through the ages. I think thinking positively applies to losing weight as well. For, if one believes he cannot lose inches off his waist, then he will be exactly right, he cannot.

We all know if we keep eating bad food we will suffer penalties of weight gain, poor health and shorter life. Continue reading “Why Having A Positive Mindset Matters More Than Ever…”
I was overweight before. So, I know how frustrating it is when the pounds don’t come off as quickly as you’d like. But, healthy weight loss does take time. For example, I lost 5 pounds a month. Continue reading “Positive Thoughts Promote Weight Loss”
I haven’t exactly had a personal history of thinking positive enough. That’s why I write about this very subject now. I’ve learned a few things about the mind and I have a few ideas that so far seem to work for me. In the past, I had written a book about mental attraction, but what I am writing now is somewhat different based upon my own experience.

Besides weight loss, health and longevity, I have written a few essays about positive thinking, meditation and well being. Somehow, these are all related. But, I decided ‘why limit myself’? It’s all subjective and this author’s opinion. Writing is good for what ‘ails’ me. And, I hope something herein helps you at least in some small way… Continue reading “Positive Affirmations: Will They Make You Rich?”
