Have you ever heard, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”? I heard that when I was a kid growing up. 😉
In case this is new to you, it’s pretty simple – instead of complaining or spreading negativity, just keep quiet until you’ve got something positive to say, either to someone or about someone.
Well here’s what I’m thinking – what about using that same logic on yourself? Yep, that’s right, instead of criticizing yourself for not exercising, eating that extra helping, or for whatever else you might have eaten, what if instead you stopped the criticism?
Fire your Little Critic
If this idea sounds good to you then you just might have a little critic hanging around (not a little chef, but a little critic, lol), which I can sure relate to myself. So I say that we need to fire that gal or guy, that inner critic, and hire a little self-love mentor instead!
You see, it doesn’t matter how much self-criticism you heap on yourself to try to get yourself to change – you can criticize yourself all day every day telling yourself that you should eat better, exercise more, and on and on, but if your inner critic could help you lose weight, wouldn’t it have helped by now?
