4 Ways Negative Thinking Affect Our Health

Cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressures are two health deficiencies that are direct consequences of poor thinking habits. Repressed emotions or anger are unhealthy compared to expressed emotions. The first step towards changing or managing negative thinking is to recognize their effects on your health condition, your relationships, and your overall behavior. The feeling of sadness and worry can cause an imbalance in our hormone, thereby endangering our immune system. 

“It might be good to think about how to keep ourselves from danger, pain, and hurtful experiences, but such thinking can delve into a negative-strand emotion without knowing.”

While I talk about the effects of negative thinking, I’ll also give useful tips on handling those negative emotions. There is a  docs which helps you to make a right decision for your health.

  1. Depression: 

Depression is simply a feeling of hopelessness. It is often caused by constant rumination on unfavorable circumstances, maybe the death of a loved one, a failed relationship, or bankruptcy. Focusing our thoughts on these situations can cause more damage to our health. Researchers have proven that most suicide cases were caused by depression. 

“Sometimes, it’s not the negative circumstances that cause depression; rather, it is the depressive thoughts that cause negative events.”

  • Chest Pain:

Emotional traumas (which results in negative thinking and unhealthy conclusions) share an equal portion of activity with physical pain. Both can have the same effect on the brain. Negative thoughts directly cause most of the time, the headache, and the stomach pain we experience. We shouldn’t underestimate the close relationship between our mind and our body. 

For instance, a Mouse experiences physical pain when it comes close to another fellow Mouse that is in agony. And this pain stops when that Mouse goes close to another Mouse in a happy mood. 

“Agonizing circumstances, when reacted to, increases agonizing physical pain.”

  • High Blood Pressure: 

Often referred to as the silent killer, it is one of the most recognized effects of negative thoughts. This negative thinking relishes the stress hormones, thereby increasing the heart rate. If this continues, it will eventually come into high blood pressure. Kidney failures, damage of the heart, and blood vessels are the key results of this situation. 

Some other factors that cause high blood pressure include:

  • Lack of exercise
  • So much intake of alcohol
  • Excessive smoking. 

“The crucial step towards healing from hypertension is managing your anxiety level: change your thought life.”

  • Sleepless Nights: 

In the United States, for instance, sleep disorders are on the increase, and the real cause of this can be attributed to unhealthy mental instability. Continual sleep deprivation can lead to a nervous breakdown. Their level of concentration is seriously impaired, and their feeling of fear and insecurity is heightened. The connection between the mental state and sleeping disorder is close. 

Overall, I will include a few ways to manage these anomalies: high blood pressure, sleepless nights, chest pain, and depression.

  • Focus on what makes you happy.
  • Visit a physiologist.
  • Spend more time with family.
  • Avoid self-talk.
  • Exercise yourself.
