Have you ever had to psych yourself up for something? A job interview, a workout, a big test? Studies have now found that self pep talk actually improves your mental state and can improve the release of enorphins in your body!

The crazy thing is that these positive self talks we give ourselves actually work! So how can YOU make the best use of these self pep talks and apply them throughout your life?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1, Focus on using positive language. For example, rather than “don’t procrastinate” say “you will get your to-dos completed now so you have more free time later” it sounds SO much better to take in! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2. Use you or your name to refer to yourself. U of M recently did a study on how it is more effective to talk in third person when trying to pump yourself up! This is because if we avoid saying I or me we can pull ourselves out of the situation and look at it more logically. ⠀

3. High five yourself or give yourself a hug. Seems odd but have you ever tried it? Physical contact can improve your belief in yourself two fold.

Got any life things coming up that a pep talk would help? Give it a try Queen.  Remember, no judgie judgie to yourself ESPECIALLY for your thoughts. You are beautiful and are doing great. I’m talking to you Kings out there too.
