Positive Thinking Day
Negative thinking has a way of sapping a person’s self-worth and distorting their view of the world. It also tends to poison everything in that person that’s good and decent. Fortunately, this process can be stopped with a bit of positive thinking. Positive thinking, when properly applied with purpose, can help a person feel better about themselves and can make them feel like the best version of themselves. That’s why Positive Thinking Day is such an important day. This unofficial holiday falls on September 13th and is designed to help everyone replace their negative thinking with more positive thoughts.
The History of Positive Thinking Day
Although we’re unsure of the name of the person who invented this holiday, we do know that he was an American entrepreneur. He created the holiday to help everyone replace their negative thoughts with more positive ones so they could build their lives from the ground up. He invented this holiday sometime between 2002 and 2003.
Facts About Positive Thinking
Below are some facts we’ve uncovered about the power of positive thinking. We think everyone should keep them in mind as they consider whether they want to celebrate Positive Thinking Day or not.
Positive Thinking Can Have a Positive Effect on the Body
According to a 2015 study, positive thinking can be a good first step toward better health. This study showed that people who were optimistic in their outlook were twice as likely to have strong cardiovascular health and had lower amounts of stress hormones in their bodies. Optimistic people were also more likely not to smoke and to exercise regularly.
Positive Thinking Can Boost Immunity
According to another study, one conducted in 2010, a positive outlook can help improve immune function. They found that law students who were optimistic about their studies were less likely to come down with a cold than students who were more pessimistic.
Workers Who Are Positive Get More Done
The last study we’d like to discuss discovered that workers with a more positive attitude were more likely to complete more of their work than workers who had a negative view of their work.
Celebrating Positive Thinking Day
Anyone who thinks this holiday might be a good day to turn around their thinking can do so by taking the time to celebrate Positive Thinking Day. They can do this by giving themselves a positive affirmation on this day, by showing gratitude to those around them, or by taking a few moments to read motivational books.
