Break It Down Logic

Home / Occupational / Break It Down Logic

Storytelling works together well with designing. Openly sharing experiences on paper or with people adds dimension. When details are disclosed about how something came to be we create intimacy with the listener. This enables long-term improvements to mood and health (Pennebaker, 1997). Vulnerability forms. Words shape into octaves, fragrances, or whatever sensation the Storyteller forms.

Trauma creates stories. Every human has words untold, stories bound to their bones by their brains. Aging is the framework of un-silencing those believable forms that words created. The mind and heart seek health by being a Survivor, not a Victim (Grossman, 2006). Are you a Survivor? If so, you’re breaking down step-by-step actions which is key to Post-traumatic Growth.

Tasks include performance demands on our body, relationships, and community. A simple task like recycling involves few action steps, yet downsizing a closet of clothes isn’t so simple. Although, both tasks demand planning. They also design a Storyteller’s surroundings (Epstein et. al 2014).

Are you able to break a task down into step-by-step actions?  Let us show you are break it down logic.
