My Tips For Quieting Your Inner Critic

My Tips For Quieting Your Inner Critic

We all have that pushy voice that "knocks on our door" every day. Let’s work together to regain command over our own lives!



My Tips:

  • Journaling & Grouping Thoughts
    • When my thoughts are going wild, I love to journal. More specifically, I like to group my thoughts by categorizing them as past, present, or future. From there, I can see what is truly important, the present. I then look to see if these thoughts are rational or not. If they aren’t rational, note this, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙡𝙚𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙜𝙤.
    • Whenever I am doubting or criticizing my self worth, I like to journal at least 3 things I love about myself and 3 things I am grateful for. I do this every morning as well! It is a GAME CHANGER when it comes to mood improvement!


  • Surrounding Yourself With Loved Ones
    • Friends and family help us to remove ourselves from our own head. We are forced to be present with them which always helps my inner voices quiet.
    • Sometimes love from others reminds us to love ourselves. ❤


  • Find Healthy Distractions
    • My favorite distractions when my inner critic gets loud are:
      • exercising, doing work/homework, cooking, cleaning, walking my dog, planning fun plans, yoga.


  • Spend Time With Loved Ones
    • Connecting with your friends and/or family releases stress and helps you to “get out” of your own head temporarily. Our loved ones remind us that we are loved, too, and to smile and laugh! I love getting together with friends to walk my dog or to cook dinner!


  • Tell That Voice to SHUT UP!
    • Literally! Sometimes the best thing to do is to tell that voice to STOP IT! You don’t need that negativity in your life. You are amazing and self-hate will get you NOWHERE!


Don’t forget that your uniqueness meets a need in this world. You are not only loved, but you are needed. If you want to chat more, or have any questions/comments for me, DM me on Instagram @madelines_cookbook ❤
