Change your Language and Unlock your Creativity
Now that you are fully attending to the meeting or task at hand, you may begin to realize that your language is less varied than you would have expected.
- Do you often feel like you’re stuck in a rut, and unable to connect to your inner creativity?
- Do you notice that you often repeat similar thoughts and phrases throughout your day?
Often we get stuck using the same language and words to describe and think about experiences, using it as a shorthand to allow us to process other things at the same time. However, using that same language can then keep us stuck in the same patterns of behaviors, and is allows our minds to try to wander and not stay in the moment. Today, focus on and notice the language you use when you’re interacting with friends and colleagues. Try to catch these rote phrases and replace them with different words. By simply changing the language you use, you can force your brain to unlock fresh ideas and thoughts that you may not have realized were there.
