Your internal monologue shapes your mental wellbeing. The silent conversations people have with themselves influence how they live their lives.
Every person sometimes finds themselves listening to an unhelpful voice in their head. While learning how to harness the voice in our head is not a happy pill, it is possible to dampen the noise and manage our experiences more effectively.
According to research, engaging in introspection can do significantly more harm than good. Our thoughts don't save us from ourselves but can lead to grave consequences.
It does not mean that we should avoid and repress our thoughts. Instead, we should take a step back and get some perspective to avoid getting overwhelmed.
According to one study, we talk to ourselves at 4,000 words per minute. (By comparison, 6,000 spoken words, such as the state of the Union Address, lasts more than an hour.) No wonder that listening to it can be exhausting!
It can also be self-sabotaging. Ruminative thoughts take hold of us and overrun and ruin outer experiences. But those who are able to quieten their inner voice are happier.
