Let us take 5 days to see the possibilities of how a growth mindset can have in our lives. This series is about sharing with you one of the three important aspects of whole-body wellness, the mind.
During these 5 days, we will cover; Abundance, Thankfulness, Acceptance, Positive Self-image and Discomfort.
In order to make room for a mindset reset, we must slow down. When we create the pause, we carve out space for the NOW, the present moment and the people around us. When we slow down, answers come to us and we’re able to make moves towards what we need to focus on.
It will definitely take more than 5 days to completely makeover your mindset, but if you repeat this process over and over again, you’ll eventually create habits that create a shift.
When I started to see that I needed to invest more love into this aspect of my whole-body wellness, I came across a book that took me on an amazing journey towards mindset wellness; Mindset: The New Psychology of Success .
A growth mindset rejects the claim that abilities are inherent and largely fixed. Dr. Dweck explains that a growth mindset is a belief that all abilities are trainable. Nothing is fixed. That we, yes, even moms can change everything from intelligence to creativity to athleticism and even our characters through persistent and adaptive effort.
Do you have an abundance mindset or do you want to blame other people and circumstances when things are hard?
Choosing to be positive is one of the most empowering mindsets to have – but it takes time and practice. Our reaction to a situation elicits a number of emotional and physical responses. Negative thoughts and feelings can elicit stress hormones that make us feel irritable, cause cravings, and disrupt our sleep.
Positive reactions to stressful situations may leave us feeling calm and in control despite our surroundings. Having a positive outlook on life actually affects your health and wellbeing too.
One study found that being optimistic was associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular-related diseases. Another study found that practicing optimism decreased the amount of cortisol released during high-stress situations.
While you cannot always control the outcome of situations – perspective (i.e. optimism) is your choice.
The next time you are faced with a setback, take a deep breath and consciously work to choose optimism. Eventually, this mindset will become easier. While challenging during setbacks and stressful situations, consciously choosing optimism can make all the difference in the world for achieving success.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.” – Mahatma Ghandi
I challenge you today to write down 3 things that make you happy. Ponder about them today and Give Thanks to God for them.
Again, it will take more then just these 5 days to really set our mindset towards wellness, that is why we develop a Mother’s Mindset program so that you can take the time to really see where your mindset is and how you can grow it.
The possibilities are endless.
