At Primal Practice, we talk about four pillars of health: chiropractic care, nutrition, movement, and mindset. Mindset has become a popular topic in recent years, as it has become more known in mainstream society about the importance of mindset in regards to your health. Where are you, on the mindset spectrum? Are you growing? Are you stagnant? Working on your mindset isn’t necessarily about having only positive thoughts and avoiding negative ones. A growth mindset has more depth than this. It is taking a thought and recognizing what triggered it. When you wake up in the morning, do you immediately think “I’m so tired, I wish I could go back to sleep”? Or do you wake up and think “Another day to be alive!”
I am not saying either one is necessarily the correct thought, but where do you want to go in life and do your thoughts support it? It is one thing to have dreams and goals, but it is an entirely different thing to put action behind them, and your mindset is going to play a big part. Is it those around you and a lack of resources that are holding you back? Or is it actually YOU who is holding you back? This can apply to anything. Your health. A job promotion. A new business venture. You are ultimately the one responsible for what happens in your life, and until you take control of your thoughts and actions and work towards a growth mindset, where your life goes may not be in the direction you want.
How does a person become growth-oriented? Look around you. Who is operating in a growth mindset and resonates with you? Read books. Listen to podcasts. Meditate. Move. Nourish yourself. Get adjusted. When you take care of yourself, you allow yourself to grow. And growing is where the magic happens!
