Negativity Is Bad For You
Cristián Oyanadel, who co-authored the study, said: “We have observed that when people are negative about past events in their life, they also have a pessimist or fatalistic attitude towards current events.
“This generates greater problems in their relationships and these people present worse quality of life indicators.”
Mr Oyandel said: “According to what we have observed in our study, the most influencing dimension is the perception of the past. A negative view of the past is highly related to worse health indicators.”
He said people who tend to be negative find it hard to make a physical effort in their day-to-day activities and have physical limitations for work performance; they perceive greater bodily pain and are more likely to become ill.
He added: “Furthermore, they generally tend to be depressive, anxious and present behavioural changes.”
I recently had this thought: The more connected you are to the kingdom of God the less connected you are to a life of stress and worry. I believe that to be true! Here’s why, when you are connected to God’s kingdom and live with the promises found in God’s word you simply don’t have room for negativity. According to the study above when you cut out the negativity your health increases, your relationship get better, the things that cause stress get smaller and smaller.
It’s amazing how often we compound our problems with negativity. Believe me I’m not belittling your situation, I realize there are big struggles and hard things that many people deal with from day-to-day. That being said, if you fix your eyes on Jesus you just may realize that your going to make it!
