Be Kind to Yourself
We all have an inner dialogue going on inside our minds. Sometimes we don’t speak to ourselves in a kind, reassuring way. Mastering the art of compassionate and positive self-talk can help you remain calm and make it easier to come up with effective solutions to problems. When confronted with a problem or upsetting situation, imagine how you’d speak to a friend who was facing something similar. Telling yourself, “I can figure this out,” or “It’ll be OK,” is a lot more reassuring than catastrophizing or engaging in negative self-talk.
