The Benefits of Positive Self-Talk
Self-talk is the natural internal dialogue that’s going on in your head whenever you’re awake, both consciously and subconsciously. It’s important because it has a big impact on how you feel and what you do. It can be supportive and beneficial, motivating you, or it can be negative, undermining your confidence. Practicing positive self-talk is more important than ever right now. In a time with so many uncertainties, it can be hard to keep a positive outlook on life.
Do you make a conscious effort to talk to yourself with compassion and love, or are you operating with a negative inner monologue? Here are a few ways you can benefit from positive self-talk.
You'll notice increased confidence by correcting negative self-talk and limiting beliefs you have about yourself. What you focus on becomes a reality. If your inner voice keeps telling you to believe in yourself and constantly reminds you that your goals are achievable, it becomes real. As you practice this, confidence will begin to show up in all aspects of your life.
Improves Your Mental Health
When your inner voice comes from a positive and self-compassionate place, the way you view yourself and the world instantly improves. Rather than let a difficult situation break you down and send you into a spiral of negative self-talk, speak positively to yourself with compassion and understanding. Speak to yourself the way you would to a friend or loved one, as we often are way harsher on ourselves than others. Not everything is in your control, and sometimes you’re going to make mistakes, but that doesn’t make you the problem. Understanding this will help you shift those deep-rooted underlying beliefs that negatively impact your mental health and overall well-being.
Negative self-talk raises your stress levels. By reframing stressful situations, you naturally adopt a more positive outlook instead of dwelling on what you did wrong or how you should have done things differently. Positive self-talk automatically improves your ability to cope with stress and takes a lot of unnecessary pressure off yourself.
