Several studies reveal that areas such as the left inferior frontal gyrus (Broca's area) activate when you talk to yourself.
Inner chatter generates about 4,000 words per minute; Internal dialogue works ten times faster than verbal speach. Thus, everything that happens in your mind, every idea, thought, selft-instruction, and assertion, has an enormous impact on you, both positively and negatively. Inner speech is a complex and multifaceted phenomenon.
A study of the Yale School of Medicin, revealed how persistend negative internal dialogue weakened multiple neural structures.
Structures such as the insula and the amygdala showed high hyperactivity. These areas related to emotions such as fear or attention to threats in your environment sometimes plunge you into states of great psychological exhaustion.
It is a fact that negative dialogue is the substrate that feeds anxiety. It often places you in the labyrinth of depression.
Examples of inner negative dialogue, are:
You must be aware of one thing: Your internal dialogue can directly affect your health, both physical and psychological. That limiting self-talk impairs your self-esteem and shuts down your potential, resources, and opportunities. Thus, you must change its docus.
A simple way to achieve this is by addressing yourself in the second person instead of in the first person. This is a way to assume the role of a friend, who wishes the best for your and is attentive to correct your internal dialogue.
The following dialogue is an example: "I understand you're worried, but remember that you know how to overcome it. You've done it before, so trust that you deserve the best. You're strong, just keep trying".
Finally, this process takes time. Changing that limiting internal discource may be hard first, but you'll see changes progressively if you commit to it.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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.
