If one of your computer passwords is, "LifeSucks," you may want to rethink that. Turns out that typing a positive-looking password every day has benefits to your soul. It may improve your mood - and even help you achieve certain goals, according to experts. It can be an effective strategy for improving one's outlook, especially considering how difficult it can be to combat negativity.
Dr. Michael Mercer, an Illinois-based psychotherapist, says that people become the words and phrases they use the most. Dr. Mercer uses a version of this method on some of his patients. He tells the Daily Mail, "Since you use passwords a lot, you continually say positive, helpful, uplifting words to improve your life."
So, friends, as Mahatma Gandhi once said, "Be the change that you wish to see in the world." It just might get you out of a bad spot and into something really, really good.
