Free yourself from negative mind chatter – and unleash a happier, more confident YOU

Do you…

  • Think over and over again about negative things that have happened to you – running them through your head every which way?
  • Constantly beat yourself up – even over the ‘small stuff’?
  • Experience the same negative emotions over and over again?
  • Feel yourself spiralling downward into a ‘black hole’ of negativity?
If so, you have come to the right place.
You may be ruminating – a sneaky and destructive habit that is the number one cause of female depression.

Rumination – otherwise known as ‘repetitive negative mind chatter’ – is the tendency to fixate on, obsess or worry about things that have happened to you and replay them in your mind over and over again.

It also affects your ability to problem solve, creates bad feelings, kills your motivation and confidence, leads to self-criticism and self-blame, and zaps your motivation.

It’s no way to live – and I know this because I suffered myself for many years.
I also know that breaking free of the cycle can feel impossible. But I can assure you it’s not. With a little bit of work, you can recognize rumination, re-set your thought patterns, and stop this destructive habit dead in its tracks.

But how?
If you’re sick of the negative voices in your head and want to free yourself from rumination, Silence Your Inner Critic will help you discover how to recognize rumination, reset your thought patterns, and get rid of those repetitive negative voices in your head.

I had long struggled with my lack of motivation and my fear of the world. I didn’t have enough confidence in myself to start conversations with strangers or to try new things. I was unhappy with the small and empty way I was living my life and I wanted to make a change, but I didn’t know how or if I could. I found the answers I was looking for in this course. It opened my eyes to the traps I was falling into and it gave me the knowledge and more importantly, the strategies I needed to overcome them. Once I started to apply some of those strategies and to do the exercises, I started to have a more positive outlook. With that new attitude, I embraced the findings and philosophies the workshop presented and gained the courage I needed to grow into a more productive and resilient person. Now I feel more in control of my life and hopeful for my future. Friends and family have told me I’m lighter and more confident. I have mended bad relationships and accomplished long-term goals. I feel like I’ve finally left my state of arrested development behind and entered adulthood. I owe that to Louisa and Flourishing 101.
