According to The American Institute of Stress, about 33% of people report feeling extreme stress and 73%-77% experience stress that affects their mental health and physical health respectively. Those numbers may very well have increased now, with the COVID-19 pandemic of this Spring, 2020. Though it seems too early for data and statistics, anecdotal evidence suggests that living with the threat of infection, the subsequent isolation and curfews and the lack of dependable information and resources, have all served to exacerbate the already high levels of stress that Americans were feeling.
In this time of physical/emotional isolation and stress, people are looking for creative ways to feel connected, supported and hopeful. To that aim, #OneSingleWord is a public service initiative that visually connects people and empowers them to share one single word of inspiration... a word that can uplift & motivate someone to stay healthy & happy, positive & productive, in the face of uncertainty.
#OneSingleWord was created by Iyanla Vanzant, Dr. Dinorah Nieves and Rodney A. Scott. It is a public service initiative, a consciousness campaign and a movement, inspiring change through the power of one single word!
Dedicated to facilitating the growth and evolution of human consciousness, Iyanla’s body of work spans over three decades and includes 15 published books, six New York Times best-sellers (translated into 23 languages and with sales exceeding eight million copies), CDs, television, radio and stage performances.
