Positive Thinking in Your Hotel Spa
By Cassie Hernandez Director, The Spa at The Broadmoor | July 13, 2014
We start hearing the message even as young children, "Think positive"! When entering into school, or a sport, or a contest, our parents continuously tell us, "think for the best!" Unfortunately as we get older life gets in the way and we cannot always hold such words true. Many times it's easier to point out the negative then realize or even try to obtain the good in every situation.
If you adopt an attitude that starts off seeing the best possible outcome, you teach your mind to expect success, growth and favorable results.
There are people, who accept positive thinking as a fact, and believe in its effectiveness. Others, consider it as nonsense, and scoff at people who follow it. It seems that many are becoming attracted to this subject, as evidenced by the many books, lectures and courses about it. The spa industry is slowing moving into a more radical health and wellness component as a way of life and no longer a luxury.
Most people don't take these words or the mere concept seriously, since they do not know what it really means to 'think positive' or don't know how to change their mindset.
Negative thoughts can feed pessimism and create unnecessary stress. You can learn to turn negative thoughts into positive ones. The process is straightforward, although it's challenging, especially at first. Start by following one simple rule: Don't say anything to yourself that you wouldn't say to anyone else. Throughout the day, stop and evaluate what you're thinking. If a negative thought enters your mind, evaluate it rationally and respond with affirmations of what is good about yourself.
With a positive attitude we experience pleasant and happy feelings. This brings brightness to the eyes, more energy, and happiness. Our whole being broadcasts good will, happiness and success. Even our health is affected in a beneficial way. We walk tall, our voice is more powerful, and our body language shows the way we feel. With exuding positive energy we automatically have a presence in whatever situation we are in. There is tone and realistic outlook that comes when we start with positive thoughts instead of being pushed into one.
