LWSD 31-Day Challenge #23: Take a Moment for Positive Self-Talk!

Share

From Live Well San Diego:

Everyone has negative thoughts, but sometimes negative thinking can become a habit. Self-talk is a part of how you see yourself and it influences how others see you, too.

To stop the cycle, it is important to catch yourself in the midst of a negative thought and talk back to it with a positive one, like “I can do this” or “I know how to deal with this” or “We all make mistakes.” Most situations are temporary and fixable, and positive self-talk can change your perspective. Using positive self-talk every day can even help to control stress.

These resources can help you overcome negative thoughts and put positive thinking into practice:

  • The National Diabetes Prevention Program Self-Talk Handout
  • The MayoClinic Positive Thinking to Reduce Stress

If you or someone you know is struggling with chronic negative thought patterns that get in the way of daily activities, you may want to talk with your doctor, connect with others or visit:

  • It’s Up to Us
  • NAMI San Diego or NAMI North Coastal
  • Optum San Diego – San Diego Access and Crisis Line
  • Mental Health Systems
