When people talk to themselves in the third person, they are able to better control their thoughts, feelings, and behavior, a study found. Here are 7 brilliant ways to use this:
Instead of saying "I don't know how to solve this," try saying "John, you can analyze the situation and come up with a solution."
nstead of saying "I'm so upset right now," try saying "Emma, take a deep breath and stay calm. This situation can be handled."
Instead of saying "I can't handle this pressure," try saying "Alex, you have dealt with similar challenges before. You can handle this too."
nstead of saying "What should I do?" try saying "Sarah, think about the consequences of each option and make a rational choice."
Instead of saying "I want to lose weight," try saying "Michael, you are committed to your fitness journey, and you will work hard to achieve your weight loss goals."
Instead of saying "I'm terrible at presentations," try saying "Emily, you are prepared and capable. You will deliver this presentation with confidence."
Instead of saying "I can't believe I messed up again," try saying "Tom, it's okay to make mistakes. You will learn from this and do better next time."
The art of talking to yourself in a third person language also distances you from the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors you currently experience. This can give an heightened perception of things and it consequences.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
