Silver Linings

Silver Linings

We encounter new challenges every day, there are certain times when things feel like they are too much to handle so we pause to think about the whole point of everything, about why we strive to get through the day only to fall back into another cycle of struggles. When the going gets tough, how do we cope up?

Studies show that negativity has a tendency to cloud our judgement, so we don’t see the bigger picture. Instead, we let ourselves drown in the endless loop of negative thoughts that come our way. So before you get in too deep, here is the low down on some reasons on why you should shake of the blues and stay positive...

It eliminates stress

One of the main causes of stress is the long string of negative scenarios that we imagine when challenges come along our way. Our tendency to overthink the possible dreadful outcomes leave us feeling helpless and stressed out. When we think positively, instead of focusing on the problem, we focus on finding a solution, thus eliminating the need for worry and stress.

It helps us develop our skills

Positivity plays a huge factor on our cognitive development especially during the trying times. When we think positively, implementing a solution will be our utmost priority. It forces us to think outside of the box and be creative in order to find a resolution. Most of the time this leads to us discovering a talent or skill we didn’t know we have.

It keeps us healthy

While there is no direct link yet, it is said that stress can cause cancer. Whenever we’re stressed out, there are bodily and hormonal changes on our body that can trigger diseases. When we think positively, instead of focusing on being stuck in a stressful situation, we focus on getting out of it. There is no time for negative thoughts because we won’t let trivial things stop us from reaching our goal.

Positivity is the key to a happier life even though seeing the light at the end of the tunnel isn’t always the easiest thing to do.  Always remember that positivity doesn’t always mean that you need to stay cheerful throughout the whole ordeal; Positivity is accepting that you’re having a difficult time right now and knowing that it won’t last forever.

“We are what we think; all that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.”

-Buddha

One of the most popular stones in ancient cultures is the chalcedony stone; it is widely accepted that its name came from a Greek town named Chalcedon. 

The most notable characteristics of Chalcedony as we know it today came from the Native American tribes. They believed that this sacred stone is a symbol of inner peace and is often used to soothe the spirits; it was associated with the Goddess of Peace in the Lakota Sioux tribe.

Chalcedony is closely connected to the Throat Chakra that helps relieve sore throats, hoarseness, loss of voice and dry cough. It also allows its wearer to express their ideas, beliefs and emotions freely.

In this loud and crazy world, being given an opportunity to voice out how you feel is a good way to let those toxic feelings out. We invite you to try our Natural White Chalcedony Positivity Bracelet flush out the negativity and see the silver lining on every situation so  try it now!
