Someone once said, “I was talking to myself the other day, trying to reason out why I keep making the same mistakes.
I came to the conclusion that I’m just a really bad listener. Then I realized I was still talking to myself and nobody was listening.”
In any given day, you may talk to yourself more than you realize. It’s not just muttering under your breath as you make your morning coffee or while you’re stuck in traffic. According to a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports, people spend almost one-third of their waking hours talking to themselves internally.
We all talk to ourselves. It’s natural. But did you know that, on average, we have between 12 and 15 conversations with ourselves every day? And that’s not counting the times when we talk out loud!
Some people might think talking to yourself is a sign of insanity, but it’s actually quite normal. In fact, it can be a good thing! Talking to yourself can help you process your thoughts and emotions, figure out problems, and even motivate yourself.
So don’t be afraid to have a little chat with yourself every now and then. It’s perfectly normal… and it might just be the key to a happier, healthier life!
A study published in the journal Science found that talking to yourself in the second person can help you achieve your goals. The study found that when people talked to themselves in the second person, they were more likely to follow through on their intentions.
So next time you find yourself muttering under your breath, don’t worry, you’re not crazy. You’re just giving yourself some much-needed motivation.
Self-talk is how we make sense of the world and our place in it. Sometimes our self-talk is positive and helpful, but other times it can be negative and destructive.
The good news is that we can choose what kind of self-talk we want to have. We can choose to focus on the positive things in our lives, and on the things that we’re doing well. We can choose to be kind to ourselves, and to forgive ourselves when we make mistakes.
Talking to yourself is a normal part of life, but it’s important to make sure that your self-talk is helping you, not hurting you. If you find yourself being negative or critical towards yourself, try to turn those thoughts around into something more positive.
