Here’s good news for those who talk to themselves (like me).

Science says talking to yourself actually helps you psychologically

Starre Vartan, writing for MNN has the details at the link below.

“In fact, science has now shown that talking to yourself has a number of benefits. It can improve self-image and confidence levels. So as goofy as Stuart Smalley’s messages about being “good enough, and smart enough” were, science says that it’s beneficial to remind yourself of those things. Verbally. Out loud.” – Starre Vartan

How well do you really know yourself?

I think one of the characteristics of a thoughtful, evolved person is self-reflection and being honest about your thoughts and desires.

The problem is, it can be challenging to start that inner exploration.

As a tool to help us in the process of discovering our true selves, Deniz Yalim (writing for bayart.org) has compiled a list of introspective questions.

I’ve saved the list to my ereader in order to visit on a daily basis and I thought you might find it helpful as well. (See the link below.)

“Here are just 26 questions that open the door to having a real conversation with yourself. I want to ask you to answer these questions honestly for yourself.” – Deniz Yalim
