Negative thoughts have a bad influence on our Limbic brain, our Limbic brain.

Our Limbic brain sets our emotional tone of mind, this specific area in the brain also tag events in our life as good or bad, after filtering each event. If an event is considered important the limbic brain will store it, will have an effect on our motivation to do things, our eating and sleeping habits, relationships with others, our senses (especially smell).

Each thought in our mind releases chemicals to our body. these chemicals are released via an electrical signal which brings our thoughts to our awareness, that way these thoughts are affecting your feelings and way of being. It works as the following – negative thoughts release negative chemicals, these chemicals will activate your limbic system and influence your feelings which will influence on your behaviour and way of being. On the other hand, positive thoughts will release positive chemicals and make you feel good.

What would you recommend your loved ones to do? Do you love yourself enough to give yourself the same recommendation? Healthy mind starts with positive thinking
