Strategies For Battling Negative Self-Talk

Strategies For Battling Negative Self-Talk

How could I be so stupid? My life sucks. I’m a failure. I never seem to do anything right. I’m not going to be able to pull that off. There’s no way I can get all this done. No one ever appreciates what I do anyway. And on the story goes… Are you a negative Nelly or Ned? Are you sick of hearing the negative talk that constantly rolls around in your head? If this is the story playing out in your head, it’s time to consider hitting the OFF switch on the negative self-talk! First, see if you identify with these 4 most common distortions of thinking: 1. Filtering – No matter what happens, you only seem to dwell on the negative. Even if you got the promotion at work, it’s your fault you didn’t get it months earlier. 2. Personalizing – You always blame yourself. It’s your fault that things don’t always go as planned, or someone in the family is fighting, or people at work are unhappy. 3. Catastrophizing – You anticipate the worst. You spill coffee on yourself first thing in the morning so expect that the whole rest of the day will be a disaster. 4. Polarizing – Everything in your world is either good or bad. Black or white. You’re either perfect or a total failure. If you battle with negative self-talk, try these strategies for turning it OFF: • Identify the things you usually think negatively about • Choose one of those things to work on • Practice thinking positively instead of negatively in that one area • Stop yourself during the day to monitor your thoughts • Evaluate objectively what you’re thinking • If you catch yourself in negative thinking, turn it in to a positive statement • Using humor, laugh and smile at yourself and

Can “Magic Mike XXL” Motivate You To Lose Weight?

Can "Magic Mike XXL" Motivate You To Lose Weight?

Losing weight has always been a challenge for me. I lose then gain it back in short order and sometimes gain even more back than I lost when I started. Two years ago I worked a plan and got down to my goal weight and kept it off, but the past 4 months I started gaining back what I lost. I know what I need to do to get back on track, go back to doing what worked for me before, but I really can’t get started and stick with it. I don’t have that same motivation. How do I get motivated to lose weight? Finding motivation, especially where weight loss is concerned, is tough. We love to eat; eating tastes good; it feels good. Often, it soothes over that rough day and, at least temporarily, makes us feel better. Can you remember what sparked your motivation the last time you lost weight? That may be a place to start. You’ve heard of people who have that class reunion or wedding coming up that sparks their weight loss. Do you have an event coming up where you’d like to look and feel differently? Find that spark to get you started and you’ve made it halfway toward your goal. Take an honest look at your eating habits to determine what small changes you can make to control your eating. Weight loss research points to the fact that setting smaller, more reasonable goals for weight loss will improve your success long term. Also, take an honest look at your daily activity and map out a plan for adding more movement in to your day. Something as simple as a daily 15-minute walk can move you toward your weight loss goals. While we’d like to lose weight quickly, extreme dieting often sets us

4 Strategies For Losing Those Last 10 Pounds

4 Strategies For Losing Those Last 10 Pounds

You were successful in getting close to your weight loss goal, but those last 10 pounds just keep hanging on. John has already lost 40 pounds, but he’s on a mission to lose those last pounds to hit his goal weight. This weekend on The Joan Jerkovich Show, we explore ways to recapture the weight loss mindset, and recommit to losing those stubborn, last few pounds. We came up with some creative ways to get back on track. If your treadmill has become your secondary clothes closet where it gathers clothes and dust, try these 4 things experts in weight loss agree will take off those last 10 pounds. 1. Review your diet. Often, the lack of progress toward weight loss, or worse, gaining what you’ve lost back, is a result of your cheating on your diet plan. Where you were once so faithful and diligent, you’ve convinced yourself that cheating a few times won’t hurt. It does. Failing to monitor what you eat by either writing it down on putting it in a diet AP lets you fall into the habit of unconscious eating. Unconsciously eating what you want, when you want, is what probably led to your weight gain in the first place. Review your diet and monitor your eating to get back on track. 2. Reduce your calories. As you lose weight, your body needs fewer calories than it did when you were 50 pounds heavier. I know this stinks, but to maintain your weight at a lower level, you need to eat even less than you ever have. 3. Increase your activity. Take the stairs at work, or wear a pedometer and focus on walking more. Tackle those household chores or home fix-up, clean-up projects as a way to get moving. Volunteer to help an elderly

5 Tips For Reducing Angry Outbursts?

5 Tips For Reducing Angry Outbursts?

I can’t stand the horrible drivers in this town! Half the people on the road aren’t paying attention. They are either on their cell phones or are just half asleep. Today I almost ran into a woman who pulled right out in front of me in her giant SUV. I had to slam on the brakes to avoid her. She didn’t even see me! I started screaming at her in my car. I had the windows rolled up but I kept yelling and honking. My wife, who was with me, had to calm me down. I think I scared my wife. I know I have a touch of road rage. It’s hard to deal with awful drivers, but what can I do when a driver cuts me off and I feel the anger boiling to the surface? Hmmmm, you may have a problem here, but then again, if I had to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident, I’d be screaming too, and would probably throw out a few curse words! Yet, you were raging to the level of scaring your passenger? That is telling. Do you think your level of anger and intensity could point to something deeper going on in your life? Let’s explore that… Do you find yourself getting explosively angry over other uncontrollable events in your life? Is your general demeanor cranky and agitated, or angry? If you or your wife are noticing other times when your anger reaches a “scary” level of intensity, take a look at what else may be feeding your stress. Are you stressed with work? Are you sleep deprived? Are there other physical or mental stresses at play in your life? To reduce your angry outbursts on the road and in other areas of life, try these 5 things: 1.
