The way we talk to ourselves

1 Comment

 The greatest discovery of any generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.  -William James
Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.-Zig Ziglar

I often browse pinterest for therapy charts, resources, and interventions. It has a plethora of mental health information available. I recently came across this pin about stopping negative self-talk. It provides a 3-step simple intervention for curtailing the negative messages we tell ourselves. The power of self-talk is often underestimated. I believe that practicing positive self-talk is a simple change one can make that has impactful results. Awareness of our the way we talk to ourselves is the beginnings of change. Be gentle with the messages you are sending to yourself. The next time you are finding your thoughts drifting into negative self-talk, practice S-O-S.
