Self-Talk

self-talkI find myself coaching myself more often (and speaking to myself aloud) as I age, so perhaps that’s why I found this piece, an article in Psychology Today, encouraging.  I can’t stand the negative thoughts that run through my mind, especially at 3 am.  I know they’re not comprehensive and have a high opportunity cost, depriving me of sleep and the pleasure of entertaining enjoyable thoughts.  Here’s a way to deal to them and banish them once and for all.  “The practice of positive self-talk is often the process that allows you to discover the obscured optimism, hope, and joy in any given situation.”
