Encouraging Words Help us Feel Better Physically

Appropriately spoken words that encourage, soothe, or commend can be very uplifting, even to the point of helping someone feel better physically. It is a well known fact that our mental well being has a lot to do with our physical well being. If you are fortunate enough to have a doctor who spends some time talking to you and encouraging you, when you visit him for some ailment, chances are your recovery will be more rapid than it would be otherwise. Unfortunately most doctors are so busy they have very little time to talk to their patients. (Lou Nicholes - Missionary/Author).
