BILLIONwink out loud! But ok, what does this mean?
Thinking out loud, in the simplest terms, means speaking your mind. As opposed to memorizing them all in your head and trying to sort them out in your head – also known as inner thinking. (P.S. – there are many benefits of take time to just think! Check them out.)
Thinking out loud is a tactic you can use to organize your thoughts, emotionsand their ideas & meanings.

To show you what we mean, let’s take a look at the benefits of thinking out loud and how the process can improve different aspects of your life.
5 benefits of thinking clearly
♡ Increase self-motivation
Before we talk about how to think out loud increase your self-motivation, we need to talk about the difference between negative and positive self-talk. Negative self-talk is when you lower yourself, have negative thoughts and say negative things about yourself, about yourself.
Positive self-talk is having good thoughts and feelings about yourself and saying those things to yourself. Like when you look in the mirror and tell yourself you’re a bad bitch – that’s some positive self-talk there.
It doesn’t matter whether you actually say negative things or not (although you should never talk to yourself). Just having all the negative thoughts in your brain can lead to some serious deficiency motivation. This is because most of us act on our feelings and thoughts.
Instead, turn these negative thoughts into motivation for the future. We know, we know – easier said than done. But, from research that uttered positive phrase, word or affirmation for yourself can motivate you to keep going and accomplish your goals. It can also improve your confidence and your eagerness to achieve all your wildest dreams. (And speaking of dreams, see all the benefits of Start a dream diaryalso!)
♡ Improve problem solving skills
In one Research published in 2018Research shows that when you’re having trouble solving a problem or keeping track of all your ideas, it can be beneficial to speak them out. This is important for two reasons. First, when you say things out loud, they just make more sense. So thinking through it can help you eliminate silly ideas or solutions in no time.
For example, when computer programmers can’t get their code to work, they go through a process known as rubber debugging. Basically, they just read their code for a toy rubber duck. And often, when they read it aloud, they get an error and can debug their code right there. The same principle applies here – even though we’re NOT programmers (and thank goodness for that, aren’t we?)
And second, when you say things aloud to others, they can help you decide which ideas are good and which you can ignore. And instead of all your thoughts and ideas circling your brain all day, you’re actually one step closer to solving the problem.
♡ Memory Booster
In a recent study, research found Saying things out loud to yourself will improve your memory and recall. And this doesn’t just apply to studying at school or at work! When we repeat phrases or words to ourselves, especially self-talk or positive affirmations, we actually commit them to long-term memory and begin to believe them. Therefore, they are more likely to materialize.
