Join Henna Inam for an in-depth discussion in this video Practice: Manage your inner critic, part of Mindfulness Practices.
- This practice is to manage your inner critic … and grow your self-acceptance. … Find a quiet space and shut off any distractions. … Sit comfortably, relaxing your shoulders, … your feet on the floor. … Close your eyes or soften your gaze. … Inhale slowly through your nose, exhale through your mouth. … Start to become aware of the sensation … of your breath as it goes in. … Where does it feel the strongest? … Place your attention there. … Continue to breathe. … Soon after you start this practice, … you may find your thoughts wandering. … Your inner critic may scold you. … Come on, it may say, you can't even get breathing right? … Or you may bring to mind a situation … where your inner critic showed up. … This is the part of each of us … that is judgmental and can be quite hurtful at times. … As you remember the situation, … imagine what your inner critic looks like. … You might even choose to name them. … Now notice what the inner critic is saying. … Label the thought. … For example, my inner critic says you're not worthy of that …
