Q – Quotes that Inspire Hope
Reading and verbalizing positive quotes, statements of affirmation, and hope-filled pieces of writing has a direct connection to overall health and well-being. Since thoughts produce chemical reactions in the body, “happy” thoughts produce “happy” chemicals (dopamine, serotonin) and interrupt negative thinking-feeling brain pathways. Using positive quotes and affirmations will:
- Reduce the occurrence of negative, anxious, fearful thoughts.
- Rewire your brain and strengthen more positive neural pathways.
- Increase feelings of hope, control, independence, coping, and calmness.
