Parkinson’s is a progressive and debilitating disorder which can render a person physically, mentally, and emotionally disabled from functional movement and daily life activities. Often times those diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease are completely overwhelmed with despair, anger, frustration, fear, hopelessness, and a myriad of other negative and defeatist outlooks. To make matters worse, those who suffer from PD tend to isolate themselves.
It is extremely important to stay positive. Maintaining a positive attitude and outlook is tantamount to attaining a better quality of life while living with Parkinson’s. There is significant scientific research documenting the mind-body connection. A mind with a positive attitude leads to better choices, ultimately affecting the health of your body in a positive way.
It’s important to create an environment of encouragement by implementing effective self-help strategies to feel better and remain physically active, and to surround yourself with people who give you much love and support. Self-help strategies can help improve the quality of life for those with PD. Self-help strategies starting with a positive attitude can’t cure the disease, but can possibly slow its progress, and reduce the severity of symptoms.
