People who think positively naturally begin to look for success in others and in situations. They’re no longer victims of negative thinking, because they’ve made the conscious choice to have a positive outlook.
(PRWEB) October 29, 2013
Per Wickstrom, the principal writer on his popular website located at http://www.PerWickstrom.com, has published an important new blog post on positive thinking, which is essential reading for anyone who is on the road to addiction recovery.
Per Wickstrom’s blog post, which is entitled “The Importance of Positive Thinking in Rehab and Everyday Life,” boldly asserts that for people in rehab, positive thinking is not merely something that can enhance their journey towards recovery -- it’s an essential first step. What’s more, once it becomes a habit, positive thinking can become an extremely beneficial and rewarding lens through which they view the world long after they’ve re-established a strong, sober lifestyle.
“Positive thinking goes beyond just caring about people in their inner circle,” commented Per Wickstrom, who personally struggled with addiction in his youth and uses that experience to bring an extraordinary level of compassion and understanding to his work at Best Drug Rehabilitation. “People who think positively naturally begin to look for success in others and in situations. They’re no longer victims of negative thinking, because they’ve made the conscious choice to have a positive outlook.”
Per Wickstrom further highlights some additional befits that individuals in the rehab process -- and people in general -- can expect once they adopt a more positive outlook:
- A reduction in stress, anxiety, anger and depression
- A boost in joy, self-confidence and self-worth
- Greater accomplishments and better productivity at work
- The ability to attract other like-minded positive thinkers who will help them on their journey, and vice-versa
- More leadership opportunities and the chance to be a role model to family, friends and even strangers who need a helping hand
An optimist as well as a realist, Per Wickstrom also acknowledges that developing a positive outlook -- especially for individuals who have or are suffering from addiction -- is initially an uphill task; one that requires constant reinforcement and strong determination.
“At first, positive thinking is a seed that has to be watered with attention and focus, or else it will wither away and die,” commented Per Wickstrom. “That attention can include keeping track of positive actions that one has done for others; carrying a list of inspiring quotes that can help transform a negative situation into a positive one; or even writing a journal to identify particular patterns or people that promote positive feelings and thoughts.”
