We all have self talk, don’t we? It can harm us or be a useful tool.
These are some slogans I’ve found useful in self talk:
1. Do it now, do it right, do the hard part first.
2. I can only do what I can do.
3. Just plug away.
4. One thing at a time.
5. Does it really matter?
6. Is this the best use of my time right now?
7. I have as much time as anyone else.
These are all discussed in the book; I may go into them in future blogs. Just think of a wise loving aunt or uncle giving you good advice, and say it to yourself.
if we have ADD or ADHD we may not have any more self talk than anyone else, but it may be more important in our lives.
