Loving Yourself Workbook
Discover these strategies to love yourself more every day!
I struggle with always seeing the positive in life. I have been working on it and been seeing improvement but there are days that are harder than others. I have to be strong for my children and my self. I have read and learned so many techniques along the way. Positive self-talk is an important thing in your life. .
Positive self-talk is one way to deal with stress. We all talk to ourselves; sometimes we talk out loud but usually we keep self-talk in our heads. Self-talk can be positive (“I can do this” or “Things will work out”) or negative (“I’ll never get well” or “I’m so stupid”).
Negative self-talk increases stress. Positive self-talk helps you calm down and control stress. With practice, you can learn to turn negative thoughts into positive ones. For example:
“I can’t do this.”
“I’ll do the best I can.”
“Everything is going wrong.”
“I can handle things if I take one step at a time.”
“I hate it when this happens.”
“I know how to deal with this; I’ve done it before.”
To help you feel better, practice positive self-talk every day — in the car, at your desk, before you go to bed or whenever you notice negative thoughts.
