Your thoughts and beliefs directly impact your body! Let’s talk mind over milkshakes:

🧠 Mind over Milkshake🍨

It may sound woo-woo to say that your thoughts & beliefs can impact your body.

In this study we see that:

•The way food is labeled— “indulgent, decadent, and rich” or “healthy, nutritious, and fat- free”—strongly influences our beliefs/thoughts And those mental cues can even prime the body to metabolize a meal differently.

•If our thoughts & beliefs about the food we are consuming can impact our digestion- what else is impacted by negative self-talk or limited self beliefs?

•The usual metabolic model — calories in and calories out — may need some rethinking, because it doesn’t account for how our beliefs about our food may impact our physiology.

I found this study so fascinating 🧐 and would love to hear your thoughts below 👇🏻

Challenging the ALL or NOTHING self-talk:

🗣 ALL or NOTHING Self-talk

This type of thinking is between two extremes: you are either a success or a failure. If you’re not perfect, then you’re a disaster.

This mindset is too strict, which leaves no leeway for mishaps which are inevitable.

In a previous post, we dove into common types of negative self-talk: The worrier, the critic, the perfectionist, the victim and how we interpret external events and our self-talk directly afterwards greatly influence our feelings and reactions.

The two most effective ways to deal with negative self-talk is to question it & counter it with neural/positive supportive statements. You can weaken the hold of your negative self-statements by exposing them to any of the following Socratic questions or rational investigation. Countering involves writing down & rehearsing positive statements that directly refute or invalidate your negative self-talk.

I wanted to provide some of examples & work throughs that may be helpful in developing the habit of re-framing and countering negative self-talk.

What is self-talk? and WHY is it so important?

🗣 Self-talk 🗣
On average, we have between 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts per day, this means between 35 and 48 thoughts per minute per person.

“I am not worthy, I’m not lean enough, I’ll never be able to do ____” or maybe it’s the voice of someone else “you’re too chubby, you’re too skinny, you don’t deserve this…” etc

Self-talk is that voice in your head that operates from auto pilot. You’re evaluating, judging and affirming things that you’ve been reinforced throughout your life. What you’re communicating to yourself about your life is what you’re reinforcing all day long.

Which of the negative self-talk sub personalities is the strongest for you? I’d appreciate hearing from y’all 👇🏻
For me, I have a bit of all four 😂😭 mostly the critic though.

💡 A large focus on my coaching process is working with clients to counter their negative self-talk, learn how to reframe their thinking & improve overall outlook on life ❤️

Your self-talk is like a movie soundtrack & you’re narrating all the nuances and happenings in your life— make it positive to see and feel the shift ✨
