How To Overcome Negative Self Talk

Think about your average day. How often will you find yourself, consciously or unconsciously, being critical of your actions, feelings or appearance?

Have you ever tried to overcome negative self talk?

For many of us it such an ingrained habit that it’s hard to think about letting it go.

It’s easy to pass judgement on ourselves — we tend to be our own worst critics, and find fault in things about ourselves that we would never criticize in someone else. But did you know that the words that you’re using to describe yourself could be preventing you from living a life that you love?

To reach your full potential you need to lift yourself up, not pull yourself down. Tweet this.

There is so much power in loving ourselves for our weaknesses as well as our strengths, and realizing that confidence is not the same thing as vanity or arrogance.

In today’s video I’m sharing an easy, three-part strategy that will help you break the critical habit, overcome negative self talk, and feel more confident, inspired and proud of being the woman that you are today.

Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear what you think.

1. Do you often catch yourself in negative self talk?

2. How has this habit been holding you back from reaching one of your life goals?

7 Ways To Love Your Body (Cheat Sheet)

Just to recap, here’s your task for today:

  • Start to notice any time that you catch yourself judging or criticizing your appearance, or something you are doing, thinking or feeling, as you move throughout the day. 
  • When this happens, stop for a moment, and be conscious, and reflective, about what you’re thinking or saying.
  • Then simply say (aloud or in your mind): “I choose to let it go. I love who I am”.

Thank you so much for joining me here on Jennifer Dene Wellness. I know that together we will create a bright, healthy and purpose-filled future for ourselves, and the women that come after us.

With love,
