Today we will continue to talk about some Quick Exercises to Quiet the Negative Self-Talk in Your Head. First tip would be to Record and Review Your Negativity in Real Time. To change your thinking, you first need to have a clear understanding of what you’re thinking.  When a troubling (negative) thought arises in your mind, instead of ignoring it, pay closer attention and then record it.  For example, if you’re sitting at your desk and you catch yourself ruminating about something negative, pause and write it down immediately.  Get that raw thought out of your head and down on paper – just a short sentence or two that honestly depicts the specific thought that’s presently troubling you: “I’m not good enough for the job I’m applying for because I don’t have enough experience.” Then quickly identify what triggered the thought.  Again, be brief and specific: “I’m new to the industry, and therefore I’m feeling out of my comfort zone.” At the very least, the process of recording your troubling thoughts helps bring a healthy, objective awareness to the negativity that exists within them, which ultimately helps you shift your mindset.

Come back tomorrow for more exercises.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. The power of journaling is effective, and I often ask questions for reflection for readers to write upon in my books. Great advice.

      Journaling helps control your symptoms and improve your mood by: Helping you prioritize problems, fears, and concerns. Tracking any symptoms day-to-day so that you can recognize triggers and learn ways to better control them. Providing an opportunity for positive self-talk and identifying negative thoughts.
