The psychology behind storytelling
How to craft compelling stories
Speaking out loud comes out instinctively in many of us while memorizing a text or while developing an idea.
While it may look and sound unusual to the onlookers, speaking to yourself aloud is both a medium of communication and a technology of thinking, facilitating the formation and computation of thoughts.
From Ancient Greece and Rome to 19th century Germany, the idea of using speech as a thinking methodology has been observed and documented.
Constructive thinking requires free speech, as speech then becomes a creative process that gives birth to thoughts.
Positive psychology has a popular tool for self-empowerment: spoken self-affirmation. Self-talk increases one’s involvement in the process and contributes to one’s emotional regulation and motivation.
Popular books on the law of attraction and the power of the subconscious mind highlight the fact that speaking aloud is a direct way of attracting something from the universe, whether it is favourable to us or not.
The problem stems from the fact that self-talk is considered a kindergarten version of inner-speech, which is the silent voice in our heads.
Adults normally internalize their self-talk and leave the talking aloud to children, people with mental health issues, and when in private settings.
Activities like writing, playing a musical instrument or dancing are not starting from the brain and then emitting from the body, but take the entire body-mind as a whole, integrated system, with each part influencing and complementing the other.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
