Did You Know That The Words You Use Can Restructure Your Brain?


According to scientists, the words you choose to use often in your everyday life can actually change your brain.

But how? Let’s see...

Neurologist Dr. Andrew Newberg and communications expert Mark Robert Waldman carried out a study on the relationship between words and the brain.

The results are quite interesting.

According to the study, our cognitive reasoning improves when words like “love” or “peace” are used.


Besides, our frontal lobes strengthen significantly.

Therefore, it is actually beneficial for the brain to use positive words.


Using words filled with positivity activates the motivational parts of the brain.

Likewise, using negative words harms the brain.


Most damage is done to the stress management mechanism by preventing certain neuro-chemicals from being released.

The reason is that negative words activate our brain’s fear center (the amigdala).


This causes stress-producing hormones to flood our system and later in the process our logic and reasoning skills decrease, the normal functioning of the brain gets interrupted.

Negative words send alarm messages through the brain.


“By holding a positive and optimistic [word] in your mind, you stimulate frontal lobe activity… Functions in the parietal lobe start to change, which changes your perception of yourself and the people you interact with. A positive view of yourself will bias you toward seeing the good in others, whereas a negative self-image will include you toward suspicion and doubt.”

An experiment was also carried out on this subject.


A group of adults aged 35-54 were asked to write down three things that went well for them that day. This task was given to them everyday for three months and it was found that their degree of happiness began to rise, and their feelings of depression declined. This means that  focusing on positive ideas and events increases the functionality of our brain.

In sum; think well, be well!
