TALKING TO YOURSELF (no you are not crazy…)
I can’t do it. I’m not smart. I’m too tired. I hate writing. This class is hard.
I DON’T KNOW HOW TO BLOG.
We’ve all been there. Negative thoughts running rampant, detonating tiny bombs of self-doubt, destructing what’s left or your motivation and self-efficacy, collapsing your ability to problem solve and take on tasks.
Self-talk is the internal dialogue with the self.
Self-talk can be both negative and positive in nature, and can be modified through emotional regulation.
Identify and modify self-talk…..
CHALLENGE negative thoughts and feelings and alter how you respond, feel and behave when faced with self-doubt or challenging situations in a more positive manner.
