Thinkers: Todays Kudos & Encouragement (Tues 6-30-15)

Good Morning Thinkers,

I find the power of the mind interesting.  Todays little tidbit is a bit tongue in cheek, but the point is made, what we think, how we think really does affect our outcomes in life.

Think Yourself Strong
You may not need to actually go to the gym to get the benefits of a gym workout. Just imagining yourself there may do the job. Dave Smith, a sports psychology researcher at Manchester Metropolitan University in England, gathered 18 men and had six of them contract their pinkie fingers as hard as they could for 20 minutes a day, two times a week. Six others were instructed to just imagine themselves doing the exercises. And a third control group of six did nothing at all. After 30 days, the pinkies of the first group were 33 percent stronger. Those of the control group were unchanged. But the men who had visualized themselves doing the pinkie crunches actually increased their strength by 16 percent. - NATURAL HEALTH, MARCH 1999
