In the final part of our self-love series celebrating February, the month of love let's chat about positive self-talk.
A huge part of your self care routine is learning to engage in positive self-talk - the inner dialogue we have running through our heads most hours of the day.
Self-talk is normally something that we do unconsciously and it often reflects our subconscious thoughts and feelings. Sometimes our self-talk can be very negative, leading to feelings of self-doubt, self-judgement and even a lack of confidence
If you find that your self-talk narrative is overwhelmingly negative, don’t panic - there are mindfulness strategies you can use to shift your self-talk to be more positive.
An easy and actionable way to do this is to give yourself positive affirmations, remember to be kind to yourself.
What are things you like about yourself? What are you proud of?
Reminding yourself of these things on a daily basis (maybe as a part of your morning routine as you brush your teeth for example) can put you in a more positive frame of mind that will organically encourage positive self-talk.
Another area self-talk is evident is when you think about your appearance... Does that outfit suit me? Am I happy with how my hair looks?
Sound familiar? How about when you are choosing eyewear? Well, if you aren't sure what suits you we have created a handy little Eyewear Styling Guide showing you how to style your eyewear to flatter your colouring and face shape. We are also happy for you to return any frame you decide against so go on.... order a few and have fun trying them on at home.
It might not seem like much, but self-talk is a huge part of what it means to practice 'self-love' and it does wonders for your confidence.
By working on replacing negative self-talk with more positive self-talk, you’re more likely to feel in control of stuff that’s going on in your life, shake off negativity and face every day with a huge smile on your face.
With love (& self-love) from,
