WORDS HAVE POWER
Did you know…?
WORDS HAVE POWER
MRI studies have shown changes in the brain when we hear NEGATIVE or POSITIVE words. Hearing the word, “NO”, just once, will release STRESS HORMONE.
This will interrupt:
Prolonged READING of negative words or THINKING negative thoughts can have the same effect.
UPSET FEELINGS from negative words or thoughts can alter MEMORY, and control over EMOTIONS, which can show up as:
Ø Appetite issues
Ø Decreased satisfaction
Ø Decreased happiness
Ø Sleep disturbance
WORRY produces DESTRUCTIVE NEUROCHEMICALS (more pronounced in children).
THE POWER of POSITIVE WORDS/THOUGHTS
EXCHANGING POSITIVE WORDS for NEGATIVE WORDS can make sick people feel more well, or, anxious people calmer. Positive Words can help us to overcome any OBSTACLE!
It takes five positive words or thoughts to overcome just one negative word or thought. Therefore, we need a non-stop flow of the positive!
WE CAN TRANSFORM the NEGATIVE to POSITIVE
