How does the law of attraction work in health?
The main idea of the law of attraction is visualizing and affirming your beliefs and desires until they become reality. It is similar to practicing mindfulness and mind over matter. Some may chalk up the manifestations of the law of attraction as merely “placebo”, however, studies have shown that the placebo effect is real and powerful.
Regardless if you truly believe in the law of attraction or any higher power, there is no harm in visualizing a better version of yourself and working toward it.
One of the best ways to make use of the law of attraction is by managing your stress. Stress is a normal and actually essential part of life. Without stress, we would not be motivated to do anything. This useful or “good” stress is known as eustress, while “bad” stress is called distress. Many mental and physical problems stem from excessive levels of stress.
With the law of attraction, the more stressed you believe you are the more stress you will gain. However, if you believe certain stressful situations are merely a process toward greater goals, the stress will seem temporary. Take a look at the bigger picture whenever you feel stressed out and find a safe way to release it.
For example, if you are stressed about the results of a job interview, instead of focusing on your mistakes think about what went right. In any case, all you can do is wait until you get a call back. Believe that you made it and start reviewing relevant skills you will need for the job. If you end up not making it, you still took the steps toward your ultimate goal and are ready to look for another opportunity. Stressing over things that are out of your control will only add more stress to your life.
