“By changing our minds, we really can change our lives,” asserts Dr. Coral Arvon, Director of Behavioral Health and Wellness at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Miami.
Writes Dr. Barsky: “We ‘burn’ with anger, ‘tremble’ with fear, feel ‘choked up’ with sadness; our ‘stomachs turn’ with revulsion. Everyone tends to experience unpleasant emotions as unpleasant bodily symptoms and thus to feel physically distressed when emotionally distressed.”
The good news is that we have the power to change negative thoughts and feelings into positive, rational, motivating thoughts, and in doing so, help create a healthy mind in a healthy body.
This transformation, which is part of emerging fields in psychology focused on mind-body health, is very important because it can greatly boost our chances of achieving what we want in life, including a fitter, healthier lifestyle.
“By changing our minds, we really can change our lives,” asserts Dr. Arvon.
I also believe that we are Ambassadors of the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth.
Jesus was very clear about what our calling is.
Matthew 10:7,8 - As you go, preach this message: The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, and cleanse those who have leprosy. Drive out demons from the possessed. You received these gifts freely, so you should give them to others freely.
