Do you talk to yourself? Maybe you should-It might help you find those lost keys!

According to Health Day News, "People who talk to themselves while searching for specific objects may be able to find them faster, researchers say." READ MORE

I wonder if I talk to myself about my household chores, will they get done faster? ;-)

Does talking to the computer ocunt, when it's slow and won't load my page? Or to my stitchery when the floss knts on it's own?

Wait --- that's not talking! That's cursing! And niether computer nor floss seem to respond positively!

This is good to hear, I talk to myself all the time! After reading this, I realized I do it more when accomplishing a specific task, and it does help me keep my brain focused on what I'm doing. Does it count if you are cursing to yourself because you can't find it? LOL

I don't but now I'm thinking I should start! I'm forever losing things (especially my car keys and debit card). Maybe I'll try this out the next time I've lost something. My family may think I'm silly, but if it works, who cares! Ha!
