The Wellness Positivity Principles.
There is a health & wellness epidemic - failing to achieve wellness goals is a major problem.
There are negative wellness trends: increasing diabetes, obesity, lack of exercise, excess stress, heart disease and more.
Achieving successful wellness results is a very difficult challenge, and most people fail at some point in their process. Many studies show similar results: wellness/fitness/weight loss goals are not met by 50%, 75% or more of the people, despite the enormous range of professional guidance and programs.
Something is clearly missing in how wellness programs connect with the way we actually think and live.
How is the Positivity Formula different from other techniques for Wellness and personal change?
My career was in communications and behavioral research. I've applied the same analytical methods to look for consistent patterns of behavioral change success. I was not just a researcher; I tried many of the same programs, read the same books, looked at what's going on around me to identify the common factors that lead to the success or failure of people achieving their wellness goals. I found several common issues:
What's been missing?
Tools to manage where goals and success originate — in our minds and thoughts that guide our choices and actions. Wellness programs recognize that most obstacles, aside from physical limitations, are emotional and mindset barriers.
You have to convince your mind before your mind can energize your body to do the work and follow the regimen.
You need to believe you can achieve your goal and not let negative thoughts dominate your wellness choices and actions. Maintaining an exercise regimen or losing weight is a purely personal goal, so 100% of the pressure is self-induced – nobody else is responsible for your goal.
Every wellness practice acknowledges that we have to overcome discouragement about progress. We need two types of progress reports- the physical as well as the emotional/belief. How you think and feel about your wellness goals: positive, negative, frustrated, optimistic, can determine how successfully you transform your thoughts into your actions.
Modern science to the rescue! Several psychology-based practices have been used successfully with wellness issues. Cognitive therapy helps people change their incorrect thoughts and beliefs that affect choices and behavior. Neural plasticity is the discovery that people can literally "rewire their brain" to change the way they think and process information. Positive Psychology is now a recognized discipline. The Positivity Wellness Scorecard uses the same principles to help change, or rewire, the way you think about your goals.
The Wellness Positivity practice is the connection that can help other wellness/health programs work more successfully for you.
Wellness Positivity is not a new way to lose weight, quit smoking, or achieve emotional calmness; there are professional programs for health and wellness issues.
The technique was designed for one purpose — to help you achieve greater awareness of and ability to manage your thoughts, beliefs, and motivations to achieve your health and wellness goals.
It's extraordinarily difficult to change your choices and actions if you don't know, let alone control, your thoughts and self-talk about your goal.
It's been said many times, in many ways, change your thoughts, change your results. Practical philosophers saw the simple truth of human behavior:
Henry Ford — "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't–you're right" emphasizes how much attitude determines success or failure.
We can't promise that Positivity Wellness 68 will work for every wellness goal, but it should be compatible with most programs. Most Health and Wellness programs recommend that you follow the acknowledged principles of positive attitudes, motivation, discipline, and you need a guide to the foundation of your thoughts.
