Putting Positive Self-Talk into Action
- Make a habit of using positive self-talk. Place your list of positive statements where you'll regularly see it - on a mirror, nightstand or desk.
- Link statements to physical cues. Say a positive statement whenever you pick up your backpack, or put on headphones. Over time, the association will automatically activate a positive thought.
- Use positive self-talk while test-taking. Positive self-talk can counteract negative thinking and increase self-confidence.
