Talking to Yourself Is Actually a Good Thing According to Science


Chances are that you talk to yourself mentally at various points throughout the day. Whether it's to help yourself with something at work, or to convince yourself that you don't need a third coffee at 10 a.m. in the morning. But have you ever said something like that out loud? If you answered yes, you could be one of the smartest people around. 

Expressing your inner thoughts out loud can help you better conquer the present and future and is something everyone should start doing, according to Lisa Ferentz, clinical social worker, psychotherapist, and author of the Finding Your Ruby Slippers: Transformative Life Lessons From the Therapist’s Couch.
