Improving your self-talk

When we’re awake, there’s an endless dialogue going through our minds. It’s our inner monologue or self-talk, and it impacts how we make decisions and practice reflection and influences our sense of self and our emotions. Improving your self-talk is vital to improving mental health and has tangible benefits to self-regulating behaviors like planning and critical thinking. In the next ten days, you’ll learn how to harness these powerful benefits in your life.
