How you talk to yourself

When you find yourself overly critical of yourself or your work, pause and ask what you would tell your younger self. Try to be compassionate with yourself without repressing your inner critic.

A tool, so the thoughts don't stay trapped inside you, is to write your worries down or speak them aloud. During a separate block of time, let your mind wander, allowing play and escapism.
