Have you ever found yourself stuck in a negativity vortex? Something challenging happens at work, or you make a mistake, and before you know it, you’ve lost hours – and sometimes days – worrying about the potential fall-out as you recycle your negative thoughts over and over again, only to later discover that almost none of those fears came to fruition.
Are you full of good intentions that you’re finding hard to turn into actions when it comes to improving your wellbeing? Let’s be honest, while it may be relatively straightforward to try and move more, eat better, and go to bed earlier if it was easy to consistently pull these actions off we’d all be thriving. But we’re not. So why is it so hard to do the simple things that are good for us?
Do you ever hear a little voice chattering away in your head that fills you with self-doubt? Perhaps you’ve heard it saying “You’re not good enough,” “You’re so lazy,” or even “You’re such an idiot.” It’s the voice of self-criticism that says things to you that you would never dare say to anyone else. You’ve gotten so used to it trying to drive you forward or keep you safe that now you’re afraid to tell it to knock it off. I call it my "mean girl" voice. Between you and me, she can be vicious.
