Silencing the Inner Critic:

Overcoming Negative Self-Talk and Embracing a Positive outcome!

Silencing the inner critic is sometimes hard to accomplish. Self-doubt creeps in and we struggle with the negative self-talk; calling ourselves the most ridiculous names in the book. We think they’re just words and they doesn’t matter, but negative self-talk can actually have a significant impact on both of our bodies and immune system. When we constantly criticize ourselves or have negative thoughts, it can trigger a stress response that releases hormones like cortisol, which can suppress the immune system. It’s important to be kind to ourselves and practice positive self-talk for our overall well-being. And yes!!! The way you talk yourself has a great impact in your health!

When we experience stress, our body releases cortisol which is often referred to as the“stress hormone“

While cortisol serves important functions in the body, chronic stress can lead to an overproduction of cortisol which can have negative effects. It can disrupt sleep patterns, increase blood pressure, suppress the immune system, and contribute to weight gain, particularly around the abdominal area. So it’s essential to find healthy ways to manage stress and talk to ourselves.

Self-Care is Key!
