Your words pack power. Your words can heal, your words can wound. Your words can be the cause of happiness or the cause of suffering.
It’s easy to go about your day with little thought to the words you express because you’re busy, busy, busy. Often, words will tumble out of one’s mouth impulsively in response to what you hear, see, think or feel.
If you don’t take control of your speech, however, it may take control over you.
According to research in the area of neuroscience, negative speech can change neural pathways in a person’s brain and the expression of positive words that express kindness can help build a happier brain.
