Feel Your Best Tip: Notice the Voice(s) in Your Head
8/7/16 — For me, those voices tend to be going at all times. The narrator in my head judges, assess, compares, runs through to-do lists…it doesn’t stop. And while it can be a helpful companion when it comes to getting things done, it also can out of control and destructive.
When I’m lost in my head or caught up in that internal dialogue, I’m not really listening or present. I’m also a lot more critical.
Take a moment now to see if you know what I mean. Listen to the narrator in your mind.
Having awareness of this is the first way to be less dominated by it. On top of that, I also highly recommend meditation to help build mental muscles and strengthen our ability to recognize that voice and not be so affected by it. Even just a few minutes a day can make a difference, and it’s really worthwhile to be able to enjoy life more and be less held back by our own devices.
