Prevention Always Wins – Part 2

In Prevention Always Wins – Part 1, we discussed six powerful ways to prevent unwellness from manifesting in your life and body and the benefits they bring to you.

As previously mentioned, stress arises as the first sign that unwellness is developing, but it is only showing up to get your attention to care for yourself even more, not less. When practicing any of these prevention methods, you are taking a proactive approach to your well-being early on that either prevents illness or discomfort from developing any further or at all. Let’s take a look at six more ways to steer yourself away from disease and toward well-being.

Here are 6 Ways to Use Prevention to Avert Unwellness:

  1. Meditate

When in a relaxed state of meditation, you allow your awareness to rest on the now, rather than past or future. By allowing your mind to be in a peaceful, deeply relaxing theta brainwave state and surrendering to the present moment, you are able to access a higher consciousness (via your intuition), induce the healing energies of the Universe, relax your muscles, and experience pain relief, enhance problem-solving skills, heighten creativity, and become more receptive to change and new possibilities. From this healing state of the mind, many forms of stress can be dissolved and prevented. A theta brainwave can be reached through visualization with or without binaural beats during meditation.

  1. Maintain a Positive Mindset

Consciously choosing to hold a positive mindset until it becomes an unconscious habit is another way to prevent unwellness from manifesting in your life and body. Practicing forgiveness and positive self-talk, as well as looking for solutions in your daily life, rather than problems, are ways to cultivate and maintain a more positive mindset. See the beauty in yourself, others, and the world around you. You’re only going to be here for so long; might as well enjoy it and really see it for the blessing that it is. No matter where you are or who’s around you, you have a choice to focus on the positive things that exist in that moment, and therefore, be unaffected by any lower energies.

  1. Practice Gratitude

Gratitude has the ability to change your life by improving the quality and helping you to focus on what’s right and well, rather than what’s wrong and lacking. When looking for things to be grateful for, you automatically begin feeling better within your body. When you feel better, life gets better. Gratitude is the quickest, most direct route to relief and well-being. When you can be grateful for the hidden lessons behind any hardship or source of pain, you can instantly transform it and release it from your experience. Having gratitude for your improving health, the increased amount of love you receive from yourself and others, and all the things going right in your world will automatically prevent “negative” things from happening. They simply cannot enter your experience because gratitude only brings you more experiences to be grateful for

  1. Laugh

Laughter is actually capable of improving your resistance to disease; what an incredibly powerful and free medicine! A good laugh relaxes the entire body for nearly an hour and can even temporarily reduce pain. It triggers the body to release those feel-good endorphins, improves your immune system, prevents cardiovascular problems, relieves stress, helps you let go of anger, sadness, or anxiety, diffuses conflict, builds relationships, recharges your energy, and re-balances your body. Is there anything laughter doesn’t have a positive effect on? No. So go ahead and have your daily dose of laughter and your wellbeing will be yours.

  1. Stop Blaming Others for Your Circumstances

If you want to prevent unwellness, you must take personal responsibility for yourself and get out of the habit of blaming anyone or anything outside of yourself for the way your life is. You are the ONLY ONE who can create your reality. The people and circumstances in your life, believe it or not, are all here to help you learn and grow into a more authentic version of yourself. Blame keeps you stuck in resistance; acknowledgment and forgiveness move you forward with greater ease. By acknowledging your current experience for what it is, you are better able to work your way through it and find the underlying lessons, solutions, and blessings just beyond the pain or discomfort. Learning to face your life without blame is an empowering way to live and most certainly helps to prevent the manifestation of worse conditions.

  1. Visit Nature

Nature connects you to the abundant energy of the Universe, God, or Source, which then heals your body, mind, and soul. There are many noticeable, positive effects on the brain and emotions during and after a visit to nature. For instance, the nervous system is calmed, the mind is better able to focus, you can experience better sleep, and your overall mood is lifted. The healing energy of nature extends well beyond our understanding, yet it is something we ALL feel almost instantly. Taking a walk out in nature or sitting quietly to admire its beauty can help redirect your attention to something much more pleasing and beneficial to your overall health and well-being.

This list, along with the activities mentioned in part one, is a proactive way to prevent discomfort in its many forms from entering your experience and wreaking havoc in your life. Incorporating any of these tips bring peace and joy, rather than pain and struggle.
