5) You practice divergent thinking…aka you think outside the box

Divergent thinking is often referred to as lateral thinking.

In a nutshell, it’s simply: “cognition that leads in various directions.”

And being able to take many routes with your thinking has long been linked to creative problem-solving.

The more thoughts and ideas we are capable of imagining, the greater our chances of coming up with new and creative solutions.

You already engage in divergent thinking when you do activities like journaling, free writing, brainstorming, or improvisation games.
