All it takes is 20 seconds of self-talk to change the path of your day.
How are you feeling today? Is there anything happening that may cause you to worry? Doctor’s appointment? Test results? What’s happening today? Let’s spend 20 seconds together intending our day. That 20 seconds of self-talk can boost your self-esteem, mood, and give you direction.
Stop what you are doing right now and sit down – start to breathe – breathe in 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,
breathe out 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,
keep breathing in and out, and become mindful of what you are thinking about right now.
Let the negative thoughts drift away.
We will do some self-talk using second and third-person pronouns as opposed to first-person pronouns. This is an NLP technique that will remove you from a stressful situation.
Ready? Let’s begin our 20 seconds of self-talk
Say these things aloud. In a mirror if you have one nearby. You will say these things as if you’re talking directly to yourself, though the reflection.
How are you going to plan this day (________?) (say your name)
YOU are safe and secure today. YOU are strong. YOU are healed. YOU are at peace. From this moment on, YOU will only say great things to yourself and others. Everything is beautiful in your world. So be it. So be it. So be it.
During your day today, sit in the stillness and be without thought for a few moments and breathe. If any negative thoughts come to mind, gently release them by saying, “release” or hit the “delete” button in your mind and change the thoughts midstream to something beautiful.
Have a great day, lovely you, and remember you can change your stress levels or your situation in 20 seconds of self-talk.
Stay focused. Stay Strong. Believe in you.
