Talking To Yourself-- Revisited

Friday, May 13, 2011


Back in January I wrote a blog about talking to yourself and how it can really help get you motivated.... it occurred to me that perhaps this strategy is best described "in person"..... so, here ya go!

**Yes, my son "helped" me... the first version of this had him repeating the end of all of my sentences..... "Yea!!! It works!!!! You CAN do it!!!!" I could hardly talk I was laughing and distracted so much!


PS: ooooo.. collar bones! Haha!

    I remember when you first blogged about self talk...and have since used it on myself...and it is indeed very useful!

    Thank you for sharing this strategy! It is GREAT that you do this, and that it works for you! I am sure I could probably use a little extra motivation to get housework done. Perhaps this summer, I will give it a try. And, if my husband starts to worry because I am talking to myself, I will just say, "Lillie made me do it."



PS- HOLY CLAVICLES BATMAN! emoticon

  Collar bones indeed!!! (I'm excited to get reacquainted with mine, too.) I told myself to run a whole mile today. and I did it. !!! Now I have to tell myself to get off my beloved adddictolicious interweb and get stuff done, but I had fun listening to you today. Now I'll be talking to myself using your voice in my head telling me to get moving and keep going

    I am really good at talking myself into doing certain things like getting up to be the first to volunteer for something and things like that, but I haven't really tried talking myself into getting my booty moving around here, I really need to try that! I could certainly use something to motivate myself! Don't get me wrong, I talk to myself constantly and do lots of in the mirror boosting. I just need housework boosting!

I love being able to see you (and Will) at my house. emoticon

    I think you can convince yourself to do something better sometimes by saying it aloud, whether in a kind way or by berating yourself. Great thoughts.

    Oh, I love Will and would love to see the first one! :) I'm a "self talker" or sometimes I talk to my cats, but really... it's the same thing. :) Housekeeping... yeah, I need to work on that too..
