5 P’s to Optimum Health
Most people’s goals are to have optimum health. Your health not only encompasses your body’s physical health, but also your spiritual, emotional, and mental wellness. This holistic approach to health is a cornerstone of Optimum Health Institute’s 21-Day Healing Program. We believe that practicing the 5 P’s to Optimum Health (listed below) will help you achieve optimum health.
Purpose: Prayer and mindfully focusing your thoughts inward can help you determine your true purpose. What issues do you care about passionately? When do you feel most fulfilled? What are you naturally good at, and what do you feel you were “born to do?” Meditating on the answers can help steer you towards your divine life purpose.
Positive Mental Attitude: Part of the Positive Psychology research required participants to nightly reflect on the three most wonderful things that happened to them that day, and determine their role in making those things happen. Knowing they were going to have to come up with that list each night kept the people looking for fun, interesting and positive things the entire day. The exercise completely shifted their consciousness from, “What can go wrong” to “How does it get any better than this?” That quantum shift in their thinking clicked them into a positive mental attitude all day, and became a habit. As the mind stays in a healthy, balanced and happy state, the body and spirit naturally follow.
Persistence: The natural tendency is to give up when things don’t come easily. By shifting into a positive state of mind as outlined above, we can list ‘sticking with a goal’ as one of the day’s three top victories. Developing our persistence in this way can give us the strength to keep going when it gets tough. Just as it takes some time to develop unhealthy habits, it takes some time to substitute healthier new habits, too.
Patience: “God grant me patience – NOW!” is a funny but ineffective prayer. The quickest route to switching into a more patient mode is to simply take a deep breath. That delicious lungful of oxygen not only delivers more mental alertness – it signals us to slow down, to reassess, to take a step back. From this more mindful state, we can consciously choose to be patient and gentler with our self as we navigate opportunities throughout the New Year.
Prayer: Prayer is talking with God. Through regular prayer we define and nourish our relationship to Him, and focus our feelings and intent by putting them into words. This mindful and verbal connection to the Divine Source gives us a clarity and feeling of connection that no other discipline can. Perhaps the simplest yet most effective prayer is a heart-felt, “thank you” – a prayer that will guarantee your happiness throughout 2013.
