Well-documented benefits of community storytelling include:
- feelings of relaxation and well-being,
- beneficial mental stimulation,
- positive social bonds,
- more cognitive connections,
- increased emotional associations,
- and it’s fun!
If you’re interested in telling a story, your story must:
- be your own story
- be true—no fiction!
- have a beginning, middle, and end.
- be told (not read from notes).
- relate meaningfully to the theme.
- not be a stand-up routine, rant, or essay.
