Positive Thinking: By Grace McTighe-Tassinari
Hello people. I have done some research about negative and positive thoughts and their effects on the human brain. I would like to share my findings with you today.
According to mayoclinic.org, positive thoughts can increase life span, decrease stress levels, improve resistance to the common cold, and reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
I did some research on ways to think positively and here are some I found on physiologytoday.com: if you listen to music, it activates the region of the brain that releases the feel good chemical dopamine and also relaxes your body! Also, If you follow your passion and do something you want to do, it makes you feel happy. If you find meaning in life, you are happier and healthier, and you live a longer, more satisfying life.
Listen up Bay Farmers, thinking positive is the key to life. Be it listening to music, singing, or hanging out with friends, go find your happy place and live a longer life. Everybody is unique, even Hugo the Minecraft zombie knows how to think positively and he is so excited the Middle School building is almost done!
