55: Dump the Inner Critic Drop the BS w/ Dr. Kirleen

    • Mental Health

Most of us are familiar with those nagging thoughts in the background of our minds that tell us we are not good enough, cast doubt on our goals, and make our accomplishments seem insignificant. These thoughts can sneak their way into our everyday routines to the point that we stop noticing their presence. They might sound like, "you're not that smart" or "you're unattractive." The inner critic can show up at work, while we brush our teeth, and even intrude on our ability to sleep.

Our critical inner voice is typically formed from painful life experiences where we were made to feel unworthy. As time passes, we unconsciously accept these negative thoughts as the truth. Breaking up with the inner critic is easier said than done, but with the right tools, it's defiantly possible.

On this episode of Drop the BS Podcast, I'll take you through a brief process to kick your inner critic to the curve. You will learn:
1. How to recognize when your inner critic is on.
2. How to use the power of self-compassion as a strategy.
3. How to reframe sabotaging thoughts.
