This week I’d like to discuss internal monologues.
By acting as the sender & receiver of messages you can consciously engage in healthy self-talk.
It’s important for there to be healthy self-talk in all you do to affirm what it is that you’re doing & putting your mind to.
Negative internal monologues are normal BUT overcoming the negative self-talk & thoughts creates less stress & anxiety within your thinking patterns.
I heavily recommend trying cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle with this as a tool to help rewire the brain.
This kind of therapy can be very transformative if you discipline yourself to the work that’s needed to be done.
I mention C.B.T. in the very beginning weeks of the Mental Health Monday series as it’s part of the reason I started this series in the first place, not to mention it’s helped me greatly, so feel free to check those blog posts out!
Stress & anxiety add high levels of worry to your nervous system causing you to be on edge which only creates more of a negative narrative or nervousness around what’s to come.
Our internal monologues aren’t always kind to us, it’s our job to change the narrative & keep pressing forward.
If at any point, your internal monologue is affecting your daily life or functionality do not hesitate to reach out to a licensed therapist for professional help & services.
