Your Positive ChangeÂ Ah-Ha;s
Before you dive in, we wanted to just make sure you have the latest research on creating positive change at your fingertips so that you can be successful.. Check out the Ah-ha’s below.
Researchers have identified the need for common language as an essential ingredient when it comes to caring for our wellbeing,Â so that conversations about what enables us to thrive and what causes us to struggle can cascade through our homes, our workplaces and our community. By changing the discourse aboutÂ a topic likeÂ wellbeing, you can positively impactÂ the topicÂ itself.Â As our words create worlds, the first step towards creating positive change is focusing on the words that we want to grow as part of our everyday conversations.
