3-08: Four Essential B's: How Beliefs Affect Our Bodies, Brains and Bonds

Friday, February 24 | Period 3 | 2:45pm - 4:00pm 

How do our core beliefs affect our bodies, brains and relationships in both positive and negative ways? (For example, did you know that what we believe about the food we eat will affect how our bodies process the calories?) We will explore how our beliefs, words and actions not only affect our brains and bodies, but also the brains and bodies of those around us. We will also discover how prayer fuels our health and well-being, decreasing our stress, and boosting our resilience, allowing all of us to live more joyfully.
