On Poor Health, Just ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’, But How?

On Poor Health, Just ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’, But How?

To keep yourself worry free especially in the midst of poor health is perhaps one of the toughest things to do in life. Although it’s hard to actually implement it, but once performed well, it could also be among the best ultimate solutions to ensure healing at a fast pace.

Negative worry and stress activate free radicals, which are toxic to the human body. A person with too much worry in life is only trying to worsen his condition due to the linked poor health to it. In this state, worry cannot solve the problem, but it just only adds up imminent troubles.

I am swayed to believe this because with too much worry or negative stress, our immune system deteriorates , giving our body (a.) a less powerful force to defend itself against other environmental, external and internal threats; and (b.) a weaker potential to activate and initiate successful healing.

Here are some words of advice on how to remain still with positive outlook in life despite poor health is taking off your courage to survive.

1. Have an open mind. Understand that everyone of us could have a better chance to get sick and there’s no exception to this rule. Imagine the most probable benefits this could bring you if you have this mindset. With an open mind, you will be able to grasp important ideas on how to improve your chance to acquire healing. You will have the courage to survive and do positive things rather than confine yourself to the possibility of impossibilities. With an open mind, you will be able to think of positive solutions rather than resent the fact that there could be other deserving people out there who could have your situation and why it is you who got it instead. Understand this. Negative thoughts will always prevail in a mind that wants to close you beyond the reality. Be open to yourself and accept the fact that there is truth and you need to embrace it. The truth will always set us free, as it will always help us find a way out. 

2. Understand that not all diseases are healed by medicines. It’s my lifestyle never to take medicine right away if I feel am not feeling well. Sleep, plenty of water and nutritious foods are the first priorities I usually take into account to restore my physical condition. These work most of the time for me, and as far as I always believe that our body is designed to have the potential to heal itself and initiate a way to stabilize everything back to normal. Its defense systems conspire to make it to a higher potential and our ultimate contribution is to strengthen their capacity to do their respective functions. Thus, worry and negative stress will not eventually help us. Maintaining a positive outlook in life is a lifestyle and it is a skill that is learned through the test of time.

3. Emotional stability is required. Logic overcomes our emotions and presents us the truth. We believe by what our senses perceived. Thus, for our emotions to become stable, we need to embrace the truth, understand it, and live by it. The truth is that not everyone of us has the truth. Our money is not the end of all things. You need genuine joy that money, prestige or pride cannot buy or compare. To live in this world is not all about pleasure for yourself. If you are not contented with your life, you are most likely not ready to die and so you won’t give up seeing your doctor and faithfully taking your prescribed medicines, because you might have the predominant thought of the pleasure associated with living. See. Our emotion is responsible for telling us what we still need in life, but it does not know the truth at all, because it is capable of telling us lies like ‘you are not happy because you don’t have money’, ‘you are not happy because you don’t have a degree’, ‘you are not happy because you are not famous and popular’, ‘you are not an important person, so you won’t make any sense at all’ and so on. Our emotions could harm us, because it is truly blind of the truth. However, the logic, which bears that truth can tell that you are not happy because you lack money as you don’t work hard enough for it. The logic carrying the truth with it can suggest that you are not happy because of poor health as you missed the chance to take care of your body by being too preoccupied with your desire to eat anything you want, or the negative stress and heavy worries of life have finally taken their toll on you. Look how your emotion has been deceiving you for life. A person who is extremely mad could kill, because of the lack of the right and real perspective. Someone who is extremely overwhelmed with joy could over promise and might utter the most impossible things on that very moment. Thus, people need to become emotionally stable in order to take control of everything.             


On this entire article, I’ve been sharing with you the power of positive thinking by embracing the truth, acquiring wisdom and controlling your emotion, but all of these were made possible in my case when I decided to receive Jesus to control my life. Truly, those who believe in Him [obedient in His will] are saved because they can now hear the voice of God, as He is giving them the authority to be His son [daughter]. This alone should suppose to make us live worry free, with full vibrant wisdom, stability of emotions in all aspects and eventually, eternal security of salvation.

There are many things to learn from the teachings and principles of Jesus Christ. All you need to do is to open your heart and ask for God's grace and mercy that you will desire to learn and integrate them into your daily way of life.

From a Christian perspective, I believe what were written in the Scripture. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). The Bible tells that Jesus and the Word are one (John 1:1;14). The Scripture tells us that we reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7-8). Finally, Jesus said, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?” (Luke 12:25).

The Bible is full of teachings with logic such as in general, disobedience results to troubles, unrighteousness breeds destruction  Finally, faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). As I’ve said, we believe by what our senses perceived. I believe Jesus and His Words because I hear His principles and found that they are the truth and the ultimate solutions to our "common simple and complex problems" today. There’s no doubt why those real Christians who truly receive Jesus have genuine joy even in the midst of the worldly discomforts of life.
