There is this practice I like to try to do but usually fail at:
Take 1 day or start with 1 hour and try to only speak at and about the people you are with in the room. No talking about anyone who is not present with you.
When we talk about others who are not present, we gossip.
I bet I would have much less to say if I was able to follow this rule.
How much of the day do we gossip?
