Talking To Yourself Can Improve Your Brain
I see people talking to each other in the grocery store or on the street, but not all of us talk out loud. In fact, most of what you read could actually be about these people, and we talk to others about ourselves every day in one way or another.
So we talk to each other to improve our daily lives, and Live Science actually believes that loud talking boosts our thinking and perception.
However, we cannot express so many thoughts at once, and sometimes it is difficult to control the thousands of thoughts that go through our heads at once.
By voicing your thoughts out loud, you can give them more clarity, which can help you make important decisions. When you focus on saying your opinion – loudly to yourself about a thought – then you focus on that.
How many times have you thought: “When I come home, I remember I have to do something, but I don’t know what it is. I’ll remember what I did and do it when I get home”.
Better still, ask someone else to remind you of it at a certain time, or try to utter a warning aloud: “You need this for your memory”. Studies show that you can talk to yourself to think clearer and faster. You can remember more clearly by saying ‘yes’ or ‘no’ and remember that more clearly.
If you are looking for something in a shop or house, you can find it by saying the name of the object aloud while you search for it. Maybe you find things much faster than you could find by searching, or maybe you find things that you didn’t find in the first place, but now you can find them much faster.
It is amazing what you can learn when you talk to yourself sometimes, but it is also amazing how quickly thoughts can rush through your head when you don’t know what you are thinking. When you think about a particular situation, try to talk about it aloud and you will learn a lot more.
Making a list of goals and reading them every day is hard enough, but now you want to say it aloud, what shocking insight could you learn from it?
The answer is: only if you really want to achieve your goals. So why let negative thoughts enter your head? When you set a goal, you have more confidence in achieving that goal, and the picture of how to achieve it becomes clearer. Saying it out loud several times a day will help you to put into perspective what you need to do and what you need to achieve. When we try to achieve our goals, we are laser focused, but when we set our goal, we have to focus on it.
Don’t worry that you get weird looks from people who talk to themselves in public, they’re not part of a group. There are a lot of crazy people in the world, people just don’t realize what they’re missing.
