Mum’s the Word

What if you were silent for a whole day?

Well, you might just find yourself thinking a whole lot more creatively!

According to psychologist Bruce Davis, inspiration always comes from silence.

Also, in her book, The Creative Habit, dancer and choreographer Twyla Tharp challenges those in search of a creative spark to go on a speaking diet.

I’m pretty sure it goes something like this—

Shut up.

Eat chocolate.

Now that’s a diet I can live with.

PROMPT: Try some silence for a change — your mind’s elbow will thank you. Heck, your spouse and friends might thank you, too… but that’s a topic for a different day.
