Research Says Talking To Yourself Can Really Improve Your Brain
You know you have seen a person talking to themselves and thought to yourself that they are a bit strange. The thing is - YOU might want to start actually saying that to yourself instead of thinking it. Why? Because you just might get smarter! But, how?
You will organize thoughts better.
Yup, research shows those who have regular internal dialogue are better at processing more thoughts simultaneously because they can organize their thoughts better. So by focusing on your thoughts, by saying them out loud, you will be able to get a better grip on them, and therefore, achieve greater mental clarity.
