We are our own worst critics. Hands down. That little voice in our head can be a real biotch. So let’s talk about how to get rid of it. That judgmental voice inside our head is constantly telling us what’s wrong with us, what we should have done or shouldn’t have done…it’s constantly judging us. And that’s a pain in the ass. We need to learn how to shut it up because it doesn’t have our best interest at heart. Now I’m not saying it’s not good to push yourself… it is. All I’m saying is, it needs to be done in a positive way. So here are three steps you can take to help get that ball rolling and learn how to stop judging yourself.
If you put yourself in an imaginary person’s shoes and look at yourself from that perspective, you will see that you are way cooler than you think you are. Ask yourself (from the other person’s perspective), what’s great about that person? What makes them awesome? What are they really good at? What are their good quality traits? Start exploring yourself from someone else’s shoes to get a whole new perspective on who you really are. I promise you will be blown away.
Pick three affirmations about yourself and say them to yourself daily. It’s way more powerful to say them standing up and with energy. If you can get into a positive state while saying affirmations about yourself, it will be 10 times more powerful. Here’s an example: “I am doing the best I can at all times. And my best is good enough”. Say it loud sista!
If you do a quick google search you will find a ton of guided loving-kindness meditations on the internet. Meditation is an excellent way to get out of your head and back to your core. When you start having more compassion for yourself you will notice the more that voice is quiet.
