My partner in health Registered Dietitian, Molly Linek shared this with me and wanted to share with YOU as mental and behavioral health is so important!
How does our mental behavior size up to how we view and say things?
Does it really matter how we phrase our words?
Behavioral scientists investigated what factors shape people’s likes and dislikes. In a recent study, participants were asked to rate a medical procedure when it’s described as having a 70% success rate, they rated it as positive. However when asked to rate the same procedure described as having a 30% failure rate, they rated it as a negative. Same procedure. Same numbers. Different results. Conclusion: Focus on the Positive!
