Metaphors & Creativity

October 31, 2013

Metaphors which connect the mind (ideas) to the body (concrete acts), such as “think outside the box” and “on one hand, then on the other hand,” can activate cognitive processes that facilitate the generation of new ideas and connections.
 
What metaphors can you think of to fit recurrent challenges?  What are your observations about use of metaphors in your family?  (Metaphors may be more appropriate for school age children who have the cognitive ability to better relate to and benefit from this use of language.)
