Describing mental chatter

The inner voice can keep us trapped in a hell of our own making. But it can also be one of our greatest strengths - if we can control it.

From time to time, we are all fixated on something that happened. We voice in out heads replay it over and over in our heads. I shouldn't have snapped at Dad when he is always so patient with me. We ruminate, we worry, we catastrophize.

Negative mental chatter

There is a difference between a normal stream of consciousness and going into a chatter spiral.

When you find yourself rehearsing the same thing repeatedly without trying to come up with an objective solution, and the negative thoughts start to prevent you from doing other things, you are experiencing chatter.

How to quiet your mind chatter

  • Do distanced self-talk. We can coach ourselves through our problem like we're talking to another person. Use your name to address yourself. "Jim, you could do this."
  • Take nature walks. Walking in nature subtly draws our attention to interesting things and gives our attention the ability to recharge. It gives you a sense of perspective.
  • Find people who can help you when you're struggling with something.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

Laetitia Berton

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!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

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.
