Get Rid Of The Silent Treatment-Drains The Brain.

Have you ever been tempted to give your spouse, friend or family member the silent treatment? Don’t. The mental effort that you consciously put out to ignore them could drain your own brain power as you hurt them also.

Suffer in Silence.

Researchers at a University in Cleveland discovered the brain-sapping effect of silent treatment when they paired students with research team members and left them in a room alone with each other for 4 minutes. They told half of the students to ignore their partners and half to start up a conversation.

Twenty Word Puzzles.

The researchers, later gave each student 20 word puzzles to do. Those who talked with their partners were more persistent in their efforts to solve the puzzles than those who ignored their partners. The study leader of the research team said ” This suggests that consciously ignoring people requires a lot of mental energy. “

Tempted to Punished with Silent Treatment ?

Remember that you’re also punishing yourself; it drains your brain energy. Empathize with the other person reflect on a time when you were given the silent treatment and how aweful it felt to be ignored. Believe it or not it comes down to health issues for both individuals.

Bottom line

Talking is almost always the best approach. It’s communication that solves most problems really, not silence. I have been making every effort to get rid of silent treatment weapon .
