What Is Your Mindset ?

Part Two    Our Mindset
Previous research has shown the power of placebos and the measurable physiological changes that take place. There’s one study that followed 4000 subjects over two decades and found that men who were bald in the study were more likely to develop prostate cancer than men who had their own hair. Langer believes that baldness is a cue for old age, and that these men may actually have been led by their thinking to waist ratio compared to the control group.

 Another study evaluated, the length of sleeping time of subjects... Langer wondered whether the biochemistry of type II diabetics could be manipulated by having the diabetics believe that their blood glucose levels would follow perceived time rather than actual time. In other words, would those levels spike and dip when the subject expected them too simply by telling them they slept either more or less than they actually did. And the findings suggested that’s exactly what happened to these diabetics.

 My wife Linda had a knee replacement about three weeks ago. She was still experiencing discomfort in one area of her knee and was discouraged by thinking something was wrong. She had a post-surgery appointment with her physician. She walked in with crutches. The surgeon told her that she was experiencing discomfort in that area of the knee because that’s where the location of the surgery was and that she should expect discomfort in an area. It was normal and it would eventually be pain-free. He also told her that she could go swimming, go in a hot tub and that her wounds had healed. Linda felt better and walked out of the consultation without her crutches. She is no longer the patient. Her mindset changed, as well as her behavior.

To sum up, how and what we think, determine who we and what we become on a physical and psychological level. This means you might have to change your expectations. If you can’t do it on your own, find someone to assist you.

In the meantime, keep moving, smiling, laughing, bonding, touching, loving and appreciating as it will make all the difference.
