It’s important to recognise the connection between our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Simply put, a situation arises, and we have thoughts about the facts of that situation; those thoughts trigger feelings and based on those feelings we engage in behaviours which in turn impact the situation (either positively or negatively), and the cycle continues.

Self-talk is our internal dialogue. Our negative self talk influences our feelings and behaviours.

So, if you are stuck in a negative cycle, it’s important to find the motivation to take the action needed to interrupt your troublesome outlook and replace it with a healthier, more positive one. Negative self-talk can be changed by consciously by being more mindful of our thoughts.

Find some skills that work for you. Here’s a few examples below:

Recognise & observe the negative thought.
Challenge the negative thought, is it accurate? Our brains have a way of convincing us something that isn’t really true.

Release all judgement.
Recognise, observe then let it go!

By recognising our thoughts, like passing ships as they come and go, it allows them to do so with little attachment. 

Practice gratitude.

Research shows that feeling grateful has a big impact on your levels of positivity and happiness. It has been shown to improve health, to deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

Focus your mind

Focus on what you can change and not what you can’t and focus on your own strengths. What we focus on expands and becomes your reality. It is shown that people are happier when they focus on their strengths. People who focus on their strengths tend to have more confidence & have higher levels of energy.

Practice Positive Affirmations.

Positive affirmations are fantastic tools to help counteract negative beliefs. They work by communicating with the subconscious brain and leading to real changes. It is estimated that 95 percent of our brain’s activity is unconscious, meaning that the majority of the decisions we make, the actions we take, our emotions and behaviours, depend on this 95 percent of brain activity. Positive affirmations can help you alter subconscious thoughts. By repeating a positive, encouraging statement regularly, they have the power to change your negative thinking patterns and replace them with more positive ones. This in turn will create new belief systems which will then result in more positive behaviours.
