Day 21 - #Ripple #BeautifulWords
#TheRippleEffect #GregWellsPHD



a small wave on the surface of water:
The stone she threw caused ripples to spread across the lake.

a sound or feeling that spreads through a person or group of people, gradually increasing and then becoming smaller:
A ripple of laughter/applause, etc. ran through the crowd.
News of the war hardly caused a ripple (= people showed little interest).

An interesting and quick read. Lots of good advice although most of it was familiar. I liked how he connected everything and how it helped give me some much needed motivation to get back to better living.

CouronneDhiver Sounds like I could use this one - I‘ve been in a rut thanks to a long-lasting cold/flu! 👍🏽 5y
dixi_e @CouronneDhiver I have no excuse! I‘m just in a rut. But this was motivational and easy to read (a few hours) and I liked how he connected these healthy habits and reiterated repeatedly the need to KEEP the habits. Also, that small change is enough and that bit by bit it becomes big and sustained. 5y
