Join Henna Inam for an in-depth discussion in this video Manage your inner critic, part of Mindfulness Practices.
- Many of us live with a very loud inner critic. … This voice lives rent-free in our heads, … trying to keep us safe. … It's quite normal, because as we evolved as a species, … one of the primary functions of our brain … was to help us survive. … The problem is that our inner critic … often seems to like to work overtime … and meddle where we don't need it to. … For many of us, the voice of the inner critic … can be quite hurtful. … It may tell us we're not worthy, … it can prevent us from taking risks, … from recognizing our essential goodness, … and take away our freedom to pursue what excites us. … It hampers our joy, peace, and confidence. … I know this because it lives in my head, too. … I fondly call my inner critic Flog Me. … Her motivation philosophy is, … the flogging will continue until morale improves. … Except when she's around, … my morale never really improves. … I think of Flog Me like a bit of an over worried friend. … Mindfulness practices help me become more aware … of when she shows up. …
