"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us "
Ralph Waldo Emerson
BENEFITS OF THE ACTIVITIES
Feeling empowered is a crucial psychological ingredient in making us active agents in our own lives rather than passive observers of it. It will determine what we think we are capable of.
Feeling empowered has been shown to:
Improve stress management
Increase active coping
When we are overly exposed to problems, without seeing solutions, it can make us feel helpless because the problems seem just too big to solve. But witnessing others overcoming adversity and achieving progress makes us believe in our own potential to overcome challenges. It can also empower us to make a constructive difference in the world.
