The people at IKEA decided to try an experiment that would teach kids about bullying. They took two plants from one of their stores and placed them in a school with simple instruction that allowed the kids to play a part in the experiment. After 30 days the results were astounding!
It’s easy to imagine the effects that constant verbal abuse must have on a person (let alone a plant). It’s stressful, it can cause anxiety and even depression. It’s amazing how much damage can be done.
Thankfully, the effects of positive feedback is just as amazing. We all need a little extra encouragement and support during these COVID19 days. Let’s all plant some good seeds and talk nice to “everyone” and most importantly “ourselves”!
Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.
