How to Silence Your Inner Critic and Embrace Self-Positivity on National Erase Self-Negativity Day

Yesterday, April 10th, was National Erase Self-Negativity Day! But let's be honest, ladies, erasing that pesky inner critic is a daily battle, especially for women over 35. Society loves to send messages about what we're "supposed" to be at this stage in life. Newsflash: those messages are often outdated and downright untrue.

So, today, let's reclaim the narrative! Here are some tips to help you silence the self-doubt and celebrate the amazing woman you are:

  • Challenge Your Thoughts: Our brains are wired for negativity bias. When that inner voice whispers you can't do something, challenge it! Ask yourself: "Is this thought helpful?" More often than not, it's fear in disguise.

  • Reframe Your Self-Talk: Instead of saying, "I'm too old to start that new hobby," try, "I'm never too old to learn something new!" Simple reframing can have a powerful impact on your mindset.

  • Focus on Gratitude: Take a moment each day to appreciate the things you have, big and small. Gratitude is a powerful antidote to negativity.

  • Celebrate Your Wins (Big and Small): Did you finally master that yoga pose? Did you get that promotion you deserved? Shout it from the rooftops (or at least do a happy dance in your living room)! Acknowledge your accomplishments, no matter how seemingly insignificant.

  • Surround Yourself with Positivity: The people you spend time with greatly impact your outlook. Surround yourself with supportive, positive women who will lift you up, not tear you down.

Remember, you are strong, capable, and worthy. Don't let anyone, not even yourself, tell you otherwise.

Here are some bonus ideas for National Erase Self-Negativity Day (or any day!):

  • Write a letter to your younger self: What advice would you give her?

  • Do a digital detox: Take a break from social media and all those unrealistic portrayals of life.

  • Pamper yourself: Take a relaxing bath, get a massage, or do whatever makes you feel good in your own skin.

  • Start a "gratitude journal": Write down three things you're grateful for every day.

Let's raise a glass (or a cup of tea!) to the phenomenal women

changing the world, one positive thought at a time. We are enough. We are worthy. And we are going to keep on shining!
