🎉Manipulating Mindset -‘I think therefor

I found this really interesting, inspiring ted talk on mindset.

Our mindset and mental wellbeing is a crucial part of the MS merryground. –

But who knew they could be manipulated so easily, both positively and negatively?! Watch this and you will see that they can 🎉

I’ve been telling myself how well I feel (when I feel like cat vomit) and how much stronger I am, since watching this, and by golly it’s working!

(….I’m only half an hour in mind, but even a half hour improvement: is worth its weight in feathers these days🎉)

So I thought I’d share – it’s not all about your body y’know…

@mermaidia11 thanks for posting that. It’s really interesting. I totally believe in the power of positive thought. Some days it’s easier than others though!

Thanks for replying ! I’m glad someone watched it!
It’s more about changing your mindset and totally reframing reality than just plain ole positive thinking –

I know lectures about that are tedious and it’s never a good idea to advocate, especially when someone is in a bad place?

This, however did help me, probably because it was an intelligent, evidence based discussion.

I hope you are well Chick

Very interesting and it perfectly complements what Dr Michael Mosley explained on the recent TV programme about the placebo effect – basically that the brain is capable of producing its own painkillers and reducing many symptoms. It only works if the mind truly believes that the improvement will happen. I think this goes hand in hand with trust in the medical team. Certainly for me, the fact that I do trust the people looking after me is super-important. I sometimes wonder if the copaxone I was on for many years would have worked so well if I’d not changed hospitals.
