How To Train Your Subconscious Mind To Be More Positive

Are you a person who looks at a glass as half empty, not half full? Being an optimist for some can be a challenging thing that they have to really work at. However, when you begin to see things in a positive way you can begin to achieve more in life. The problem many face when they attempt to become an optimist is you need to train your subconscious mind to be more positive.

It has been found in studies that the recovery from many illnesses could be caused by the reduction in stress. It is safe to say that the main cause of stress is worrying. You need to relax and open your mind to being positive. So, how do you do that?

You cannot begin to change your behavior if you do not understand what it is you need to change. Understanding the subconscious mind is important in understanding how to become a more positive person. Think of your mind as having two main areas: the Conscious and the Subconscious.

The Conscious can be considered your objective mind and the Subconscious can be considered your subjective brain. Your Conscious mind deals with the objective thinking and the subjective deals with the background tasks. Your subjective mind is the engine that keeps your organs operating correctly. Using your subconscious mind you can allow yourself to become more positive.

We are creatures of habit and the best way to become more positive is to learn the habit of positivity. To learn a new habit it is said to take close to 30 days. In order for you to learn the habit of positivity you must train your subconscious mind and memory to learn the new habit by establishing positive behavior for 30 days.

Persistence is going to be key during this training period. It can be easy to fall off, forget the ultimate goal, and turn back to your original behavior. Stay the course and you will change. Having a friend there to assist you can help keep you going towards optimism.

Living life as a pessimist can be difficult, not only for you but also for everyone around you. While it is hard to invest 30 days of your life to train your subconscious mind to be more positive, it is a change that will have profound effects on the rest of your life. Take the time, train yourself and your memory, and begin to live a better life.
