The average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Surprisingly, 80% were negative, and 95% were exactly the same thoughts as the day before.
Once you have a thought that sends an electrical signal from one place to another in your brain at its simplest form. That’s neural signals send something called a neuropetide ( compounds which act as neurotransmitters) down to your body which induces hormone release.
When you think about a really stressful thing, your brain receives that signal, your neuropeptide sends signals down to the adrenal glands — triangle-shaped organs at the top of your kidneys to create the hormones cortisol, aka the stress hormones.
The long-term activation of the stress-response system and the overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones that follows can disrupt almost all your body's processes. This puts you at increased risk of many health problems, including:
Memory and concentration impairment
That's why it's so important to learn healthy ways to cope with your life stressors.
Breaking your negative though pattern can give a positive effect on your health mentally and physically.
