You can train your brain to think positive. The study of neuroplasticity proves that the brain is pliable. A thought can change your brain. Trained, deliberate positive thinking can shape your future thoughts and alter your life.
Resilience builds when you take care of yourself and think positive.
Take care of yourself. Do enough things every day that rejuvenate your vitality to counteract daily stress.
- Get enough sleep
- Eat properly
- Drink Water
