We may typically think that being positive is really about our mind, our attitude, thoughts and feelings. However, increasingly we understand that the body and mind are closely connected and it really helps us to look after both our physical and mental health.

So if we think about this for a bit we can think of the current research about how walking and even standing during the day can be helpful to us. It can help us to fight our sedentary lifestyle and prevent physical health problems. We also hear about the benefits in the form of endorphins that can be found after some physical exercise. This is what helps people go to the gym or tackle marathons.

We can't ignore also the overlap between physical and social health. If we exercise with others or even walk outside we will find ourselves interacting with others. We know that exercising with others is much more fun and motivating than exercising alone. This social connection acquired through physical activity is beneficial to our mental health.

Overcoming physical challenges and looking after ourselves physically in the way we exercise, rest and eat can help us to feel more positive about ourselves. It can help us to value who we are and how we feel. This can really promote our positivity and help us to feel more in control of our bodies and lives.

Hopefully now it's really obvious how physical health is related to positivity. We cannot focus on one part of our health to the exclusion of others. Rather we can look after our whole selves and benefit all round.
