Is self-discovery a focus for you in 2020? If so, keep reading!
Resolutions are easy to make but not so easy to keep. One of the things I love about quotes is that they’re really good at helping us get inspired, focused, and/or motivated.
That might sound hokey but words are powerful.
In fact, according to Andrew Newberg, M.D. and Mark Robert Waldman, a single positive or negative word can actually alter your brain. In their book, Words Can Change Your Brain they write:
“By holding a positive and optimistic word in your mind, you stimulate frontal lobe activity. This area includes specific language centers that connect directly to the motor cortex responsible for moving you into action. And as our research has shown, the longer you concentrate on positive words, the more you begin to affect other areas of the brain.”
Pretty interesting stuff, right?!
