There is a lack of intentional and active encouragement in our daily lives. With our lives broadcasted on social platforms, it’s easy to fall into comparison and feelings of inadequacy which can perpetuate anxiety and depression.
Encouraging others is ultimately telling someone, “Hey, I’m on your side. I believe in you. You are not alone.” The hard truth is, it’s becoming harder in a digital age to find people to surround yourself with who will encourage us in our daily lives.
How do you feel when someone says, “You are amazing!” or how about when someone says a negative word like, “You really screwed this up!” It doesn’t matter who you are, the positive or negative influence of our words is universal.
There’s a reason for all of this. Words have power over our well-being and I’m not just talking in an emotional way, I’m talking about science.
New studies by some of the world’s leading minds, like Nobel prize recipient, Luc Montagnier and the late Dr Masaru Emoto, have been studying the effects of water memory and frequency—basically the science behind why you feel a certain way when things are spoken around you. Considering the human brain and heart are composed of 73% water, the affects of vocal frequency seems relevant.
Our initiative is to raise awareness on the impact of positive thinking and spreading encouragement to enforce good mental health through optimism.
We want to help the growth of emotional intelligence in a fun and helpful way. Our idea is to create a phone app and online community that gives you daily bits of manna (encouragement) based on how you are feeling each day. These daily bits could be quotes, songs, artwork or videos.
Beyond that, we would love to become the Livestrong of encouragement research and activism—using actual science to create challenges for kids and adults to practice or participate in that would be helpful in bringing new life to the words we speak over each other.
We are in the beginning stages of this venture but would love some help. Use our contact page to let us know if you’re interested in collaborating in some capacity.
