THE THOUGHTS LIKE:
I can’t believe this! I can’t do anything right.
The car needs new brakes it’s gonna cost so much this is why I never get ahead.
I can never find anyone I wanna go on a date with I will be single forever
I should’ve gone to the gym today I always make excuses
LET’S UNDERSTAND ABOUT ANXIETY:
Anxiety is a feeling of fear, dread, and uneasiness. It might cause you to sweat, feel restless and tense, and have a rapid heartbeat. It can be a normal reaction to stress. For example, you might feel anxious when faced with a difficult problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important decision
LET’S UNDERSTAND ABOUT SELF-TALK :
Self-talk is the way you talk to yourself or your inner voice. You might not be aware that you’re doing it, but you almost certainly are. This inner voice combines conscious thoughts with inbuilt beliefs and biases to create an internal monologue throughout the day.
POSITIVE SELF TALKS:
Conversations in our minds are called self talks these internal dialogues can shape your beliefs and influence emotions and behaviour repeated self talk can eventually become what apeson considers facts, even on a subconscious level positive self talk reflects inernal thoughts that provide you with assurance and motivation you can use positive self-talk as a way to guide your decisions and takel everyday challenges negative thinking, on the other hand,can detract from or distort you positive outlook negative thinking can lead to stress let’s explore more abhout negative thinking some common patterns of negative thinking include personalizing and filtering personalizing is when you see yourself as the cause of all the bad things in your life flitering is when you focus on negative information and ignore positive information these patterns of negative thinking often leave people feeling helpless,but with practice, people can continue to create more rational one step in the process of focusing on positive self –talk,rather than negative thinking,is to check your thoughts whenever you recognize that yoy’re thinkingnegatively, take a step back and consider how to reword things in a gentler or more positive way instead of saying
“I’m always late to everything “I’m so disorganized Say, “if I start using reminders and alerts regularly “I could really make my day run smoother.”
Positive self-talk is not self-deception It is a way to find something positive when facing the ups and downs of each day Some other ways to shift your thinking include surrounding yourself with positive people, including surrounding yourself with positive people, exercising and eating a healthy diet directed by your physician. It is also important to be aware of situations, environments, and triggers that cause you to fall back on negative thinking Whenever the opportunity arises, try to find humour to ease the tension. By training your self-talk to be more positive, by training your self-talk to be more positive, you will be able to manage stress more effectively. You may also experience less stress and an increase in motivation and self-confidence it takes time, practice and patience to train yourself to be effective in using positive self-talk, but when successful, it keeps your mindset balanced
However, much research suggests people with positive self-talk may have mental skills that
allow them to solve problems, think differently, and be more efficient at coping with
hardships or challenges. This can reduce the harmful effects of stress and anxiety.
Anxiety attacks are moments of intense anxiety that are seemingly impossible to control. Your mind races with negative thoughts – many of them health-related, although not always – and you can’t help but feel as though something terrible is about to happen. Anxiety attacks can be so draining that they can actually cause temporary depression.
Once you’re having an anxiety attack they can become very hard to control. But some people find that the best thing they can do is known as “positive self-talk,” which is when you use the power of your words to overcome your anxiety.
This is perhaps the most common type of anxiety-self talk there is. Affirmations are positive phrases that represent the control you want to have over yourself. For example:
- “I am not controlled by my anxiety.”
- “I am better than my anxiety.”
- “Nothing is wrong with me. I have anxiety, and that’s okay.”
There are literally thousands of affirmations because there’s no such thing as a bad affirmation. It simply has to be something that you’re determined to believe and feel, even when anxiety tells you something else. It needs to be positive, and uplifting, and you need to be proud to say it.
The greatest issue standing in the way of affirmations is an embarrassment. We live in a pretty cynical world, and people don’t like the idea of talking to themselves and saying positive statements that go against how they feel in an effort to find relief from their anxiety. Because of that, affirmations rarely work right away, because as you’re saying them at first, you’re often letting the voice in the back of your head tell you that what you’re doing is silly.
But if you can commit to them and keep at them, eventually it will start to feel more normal, and you may find that these affirmations provide you with some much-needed relief.
Not all positive self-talk is in the form of happy phrases or even happy stories. Some are simply a type of problem-solving that you love to do.
For example, if you’re someone that loves to solve math problems (and doesn’t everyone love to solve math problems?) then perhaps you’d like to create math problems in your head and try to solve them. Or maybe you’re someone that likes poetry. Perhaps you can try to remember poetry and say it to yourself.
Remember, anything that distracts your brain is positive. It’s not just the positive principles of self-talk that are important, or the way you feel (though those both play a role) – it’s also about simply making sure you’re finding some way to put your mind on something else.
Using Self-Talk Strategies
Talking to yourself always seems unnatural at first. But your biggest supporter is you, and your brain is designed specifically to try to adapt to reduce stress and make you happier. So consider using these self-talk strategies to start making a real difference in the way you see your anxiety and how you adapt to it. You may find that it’s just what you need to make your anxiety attacks weaker, and overcome them easier.
Self-talk also has the added benefit of simply being distracting without negative consequences. One of the best ways to eventually stop and cure anxiety is simply a distraction. The less you’re able to focus on negative, anxiety-fueling thoughts, the more they seem to go away.
So, always remember you’re not alone (a lot of us are here for the same reasons) and you’re doing an amazing job getting on top of your mental health and you should be proud of yourself for doing so I hope you have an amazing day and know we’re here with you.
Anxiety happens when you think you have to figure out everything all at once Breath You’re strong you got this take it day by day
- Take control of your life, start something by doing it badly
- Forgive yourself, be kind to yourself
- Having a purpose and meaning in life
Studies have shown that simply talking about our problems and sharing our negative emotions with someone we trust can be profoundly healing—reducing stress, strengthening our immune system, and reducing physical and emotional distress (Pennebaker, Kiecolt-Glaser, & Glaser, 1988).
