On Tuesday, I went live on our FB page and talked about eight things you can do when your mind goes blank.
You can watch the replay here:
I shared a few phrases that you can use when your mind goes blank. So I thought I’d share a few more with you today.
These phrases can be used when somebody asks you a question and your mind goes blank or you need some time to think:
- I need a moment to pull my thoughts together.
- I’m glad you asked.
- I’ve never really thought about that, but …
- Let me just take a moment to consider your question.
- Let me think. Well, …
If the question is hard, it’s fine to say that you think it’s hard. As long as you’re honest and show that you’re putting in the effort to come up with an answer.
Now, before I go, just remember: having a mind blank is not a catastrophe!
Use the tips I shared in the FB live session and these phrases as your action plan.
The more you practise, the better you will get at recovering from mind blanks.
