With all the dissension the country in the world is experiencing, how does one maintain a state of calm and inner peace? In this episode, I offer some suggestions as well as explaining how brain chemicals affect our inner world and how we can regulate them.
Any time you experience the feeling of love, your brain releases oxytocin, which is known as the love chemical, and it has a healing effect on the body.
When you feel stress or anything negative, cortisol is released, which has a deleterious effect on the body because it causes inflammation.
The idea is to minimize cortisol and maximize oxytocin.
Chronic diseases are affected by cortisol.
Every time you feel annoyed or angry, you are releasing cortisol.
Gratitude practices help you develop a oxytocin habit.
Every time you get angry or upset, that adds inflammation to your system, especially if the feelings are ongoing rather than momentary.
You have the ability to change your brain chemical releases by changing your emotional habits.
Everything about your life will get better when you move from the cortisol space to the oxytocin space.
When you consciously develop an attitude of love and peace, I guarantee that your life will get better.
If you haven’t dealt with your childhood wounds it is going to affect your life outcomes.
Because your business and life outcomes are an extension of you, you will do better when you are in a more positive space.
When dealing with other people, if I’m always looking for our similarities rather than our differences, I am actually missing something.
Embracing our differences allows for expansion.
The place to start is for you to learn how to love yourself because when you love yourself, it’s easier for you to love and accept other people.
I suggest that you work on altering your thought patterns and your emotional habits and accepting who and where you are.
