Before getting to the diet, I want to point out that sometimes it just feels really good to say F*#*! It’s even been said that people with higher IQ’s have the tendency to cuss a lot.
Beyond letting go with some choice words from time to time, science has proven that you could very well be damaging your brain, destroying your relationships and damaging the mental and emotional health of yourself and others – just by the words you choose.
It’s true! MRI scans are able to track and prove how dozens of stress producing hormones and neurotransmitters respond in a way that interrupt the normal functioning of your brain, impair your logic, reason, language processing and communication – Simply by being EXPOSED to a word.
Obviously, you will not be feeling your best.
Don’t believe me? Try it:
angry broken cruel deprived evil fear gross hate hostile injure malicious pain repulsive rude spiteful stressful terrible threatening ugly unwanted unwelcome upset vicious vile vindictive weary worthless yucky
I’m sorry to have brought you down.
You will now need five times the amount of positive words to bring you back up. This is because your ego is hypersensitive to anything negative in order to protect you from harm.

Here are some words to bring you back up:

You can find an extensive list of positive words by searching on Google.
As you can see, you felt at least somewhat uplifted when you read through the positive words, even if you didn’t attach emotions to each word you read.
You might want to read this list one more time to confirm this fact for yourself.
Back to the Diet:

The Word Diet Guidelines:
Seeking the positive doesn’t mean you have to ignore problems or pretend the world is filled with rainbows and unicorns. At the same time, you can remain aware of what is negative without becoming attached or immersed in it. You can seek positive solutions. If there is no solution, then you can seek comfort. Remember, hugs are positive words in action.
