Daily Post: Take 10 minutes...


Take ten minutes and write a description of your life—stream of consciousness, no self-judgment, no editing.
...stop...do...come back...

Then go over your description, looking for every word that carries frightening or painful associations.
...stop...do...come back...



These words have more power than you might think.

Studies show that after focusing on words having to do with aging, people walk more slowly; when they see words associated with anger, they're more likely to be rude.
