Your mindset plays an enormous part in managing your health and wellbeing. Maintaining a positive outlook can help the body heal. Recent studies have proven that mindfulness practices, such as meditation, positive self-talk and affirmations have a positive biological impact.
Why Positive Thoughts Matter
All thoughts have a vibrational frequency. Positive thoughts vibrate at and higher rate and carry positive, regenerative energy. Likewise, negative thoughts vibrate at a lower frequency and carry a negative charge which is harmful and detrimental energy. Are you with me? In a nutshell, it's impossible for your body to heal if your head is full of negative self-talk because there is a constant flow of destructive energy running through your body which causes dis-ease. This reinforces our perspective that skin health needs to be looked at from a holistic point of view. Changing your mindset will set you free; not only by making you feel more positive about life in general, but it will help you manage stress, improve your relationships, with yourself and others and will help your body heal from the inside and outside.
If you have any skin concerns, it's essential to come from a positive healing mindset. You need to fully trust that your body, given the right environment, which includes eating whole and nutritious foods, sleep, exercise, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing stress along with your mindset can heal itself.

There is no such thing as 'bad skin'. Your skin is doing the very best it can at any point in time. Replace the mindset of 'problem skin' with a new mindset of 'the opportunity to learn more about your body to improve your skin's health'. Along with taking into consideration the types of products that you use on your skin and your lifestyle choices, take the time to consider how you feel about your body and your skin. What is your internal dialogue? Are you judgemental and overly critical? Dissatisfied or unhappy?
If you are feeding your body negative thoughts, be careful, it listens. The simple act of implementing a daily gratitude practice can have a fantastic impact on your mindset. This is where you give thanks for all the wonderful things your body allows you to do. Give thanks for the incredible functions that "just happen" in our body every moment, without us knowing or asking. It's pretty amazing really! There is a lot to be grateful for.
