Reduce Stress: Eliminate Your Negative Self-talk

by

“You can’t do that! You’ll make a fool of yourself!”
This is the soft voice that something appears when we try to so something outside of our comfort zone. Can you late to this? Well, I definitely can!

None of us are immune from this or other negative thoughts. I call them ‘haunting headtrash’. The big difference is how they impact our life and HEALTH!

For some people, these negative thoughts have little negative impact on how they live their life because they have mastered the skills needed to keep them in control. However, for many others, they become the driving force behind most of the decisions that they make. Hence, they avoid doing the things they would like to do – things that could have a positive impact on their life and others.

Even worst, studies show that these negative thoughts can have health implications! The stress they cause could result in depression, cardiovascular disease (heart disease), headaches, high blood pressure…

POSITIVE THINKING
Of course, some of you maybe thinking, “Easier said than done”. By the way, that is a perfect example of your headtrash at work.

Positive thinking doesn’t mean that you avoid or ignore life’s less pleasant situations. No, it means that you approach the unpleasantness in a more positive and productive way.

All this start with changing your self talk. However, before we are able to make lasting change, it is imperative that:

  • We have an understanding of how our mind is programmed
  • How to recognize our ‘haunting headtrash’ because many times they are unconscious.
  • How our negative thinking may be meeting one or more of our six human needs.
  • Until next time … BE POSITIVE!
