Everyone’s familiar with the sensation of being trapped in a conversation for too long – be that over the garden fence, by the office water cooler, or even on the phone. On the other end of the spectrum, we’ve also experienced conversations that seem to end prematurely, leaving us dissatisfied and maybe even a little hurt. A new study out of Harvard University provides insight into our daily conversations, and Dr. Bray reviews the Dos and Don’ts of conversations. The most important being how to end a conversation. Dr. Bray also shares the reasons why you should write every day. Yes, there are mental and physical health benefits, but writing 10-15 minutes a day not only improves your thinking but also helps reveal who you are. Writing is one of the critical ways for you to be self-aware. It doesn’t matter if you journal, blog, or post on social media—you just need to write.
