    Seven Thoughts That Are Bad For You

    7 Thoughts That Are Bad For You | LiveScience

    Our personalities do more for us than determine our social circles. Temperament can impact a person's physical health.
    "The idea that behavior or personality traits can influence health is one that's been around for a long time. We're just now getting a handle on to what extent they do," said Stephen Boyle of Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina.
    From those with a chill demeanor to the completely frazzled types, mental factors are ultimately tied to physical health. And while a highly neurotic person might deteriorate more quickly than others, not every character trait will kill you. Some might even boost lifetimes.

    Comments?
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    Positive thinking goes a long way. Of those 7 thoughts, stress and anxiety are 2, and they are not really thoughts but emotional/psychological conditions resulting from events.

    Thinking bad things can put you on a downer for sure. But sometimes it helps put things in perspective. Samurai warriors used to contemplate their own death every day to prepare themselves better for battle (not sure exactly how that worked).

    Being positive really helps though, although it is hard at times.
