Quick Tips

To prevent bad self-talk from occuring, watch your words


The words we use have a great impact on us. They affect how we feel about a certain situation, as well as how we perceive it. They also affect our mood. If we are pressured by the words we use, then it probably is time to stop and reflect on our vocabulary. Words like ‘must’, ‘should’, ‘have to’, etc., need to be avoided and replaced with milder equivalents:

  • Use ‘I may’ or ‘I can’ instead of ‘I should/must/have to’. This gives you more control over the situation, and you will instantly feel less pressure.
