Why You Should Talk to Yourself (in 3rd person).

Good Life Riff: Ever wonder why the internet is littered with a bajillion feel-good quotables, when the reality of most people’s lives is pretty far from the utopian mumbo-jumbo we so often see hand-lettered all over insta?

Ever wonder what might happen if you changed those quotables to something that was a little less aspirational and a little more real? The short answer just might surprise you. That’s what we’re talking about today.

Good Life Science: And, in our Good Life Science segment, we’re diving into an eye-opening bit of new research. It’s about how we talk to ourselves when we’re anxious and under stress. Turns out, we just might get better faster when we do something just a little bit, well, weird. When we shift our self-doubt to the third-person. Details in today’s Good Life Science brief. And, as always, for those want to go to the source, here’s a link to the full study.
