Our mind is a powerful thing. The thoughts we let in (positive or negative), the ideas we let in, and so on, have a major effect on our well-being. The example of the placebo effect can give us enough proof of that. Check out this article, or this article if you’re not sure what I mean, or want to dive deeper.
