Self-regulation includes self-observation.

From a social learning perspective performing self-observations of completed tasks, followed with positive self-judgements can increase self-regulation.


 Self-observation includes..

verbally acknowledging progress

 or writing down reactions

influencing motivation and self-efficacy.

Identifying and reflecting upon internal dialogue can increase self-awareness and ability to become attuned with emotions providing greater control over emotional and behavioural responses. Engaging in positive self-talk   facilitates self-awareness of conflicting thoughts or ideas, shedding light on goals, behaviours, and thoughts which may be incongruent on the path to goal attainment.  Shifting negative thought processes and subsequent behaviours to more positive, realistic functioning is achieved through modification and monitoring of internal dialogue.
