Express Your Thoughts Efficiently: a Habit of Daily Writing
Many of us struggle with coherently expressing our thoughts. It is not a unique problem of some particular communities of people. Efficient expression is a skill that requires training the same as our muscles do to stay strong and resilient.
Why should we master this skill?
Expressing thoughts helps people not only in writing papers or solving creative tasks, but it is also necessary for work and daily conversations, public speaking, and other communication types. People are social creatures, so they conduct verbal transactions with each other, even if you came out from your place to buy a coffee.
Have you ever gotten lost in conversations and had nothing to say?
That may be caused by the lack of structuring your thoughts properly. This article will tell you how to train your expression of ideas to stay understandable at any time.
What will not work out
If you think that we will suggest coming up with the sentences on the move, you are wrong. That will not work out because you will be focused on the singular process that will probably distract you from expressing your thoughts.
One ready decision
You can solve the problem of explicit communication by providing a new habit in your everyday life – a practice of daily writing.
Statistics say that nearly 85% of people consume information from the external world via the visual channel of perception. It means that perhaps if you are one of the so-called ‘visuals’ – you will better remember or playback information that you have seen.
Here comes the habit of writing. Daily writing is a multifaceted process that helps you to improve different aspects of your traits and character – from psychological barriers to creativity skills. Also, it will help you to find the “correct words” for your speech.
If you are going to meet your friend tomorrow and tell them how amazing your weekends were, write down a story. Deploy it on 3-4 pages or more. The next step is reading your story. Reading your non-efficiently expressed thoughts at the beginning of this daily habit may be tough. That is entirely okay because everyone needs time. Replace compounded sentences with complex ones. Add more adjectives, add fewer verbs or nouns. Confuse incompatible words just for fun. Try to dive into your own written words. After you read what you created, it would be much easier to explain your thoughts while speaking and writing. The more practice you do, the more success you get.
Additional benefits of daily writing
And finally, the habit of daily writing improves your memory skills and reduces stress. During noting some things, you remain focused on your thoughts and your paper, even if you think that your head is too empty to fill the paper with words. Once you relax, the flow of your thoughts converts into words.
You can choose to write by hand or type on your computer or smartphone. Sometimes covering one demand you put forward to yourself, you handle unexpected problems that probably have been making you struggle for a while. Try writing every day. Express your thoughts efficiently.
