Does Your Inner Critic Sabotage You? Read This. l The Friday 3: October 29, 2021


Happy Friday!


Learned a lot this week that I'm eager to share with you!


1) I'm scrolling through...

positivity and mental health content on Instagram.


While we’re spending time on social media, why not scroll through inspirational quotes that can uplift us? Why not get tips and information on how to improve your mental health?


Here are four of my favorite handles:


@powerofpositivity

@betterme.mental_health

@_hi_anxiety

@projecturok


2) I'm quieting...

my inner critic by learning about the 7 Critic Types. Can you guess which one fits you?


1. The Perfectionist

2. The Inner Controller

3. The Taskmaster

4. The Underminer

5. The Destroyer

6. The Guilt Tripper

7. The Molder


You can take the quiz here to determine what time of inner critic needs to be quieted in your own mind here.


3) I'm revisiting...

my favorite exercise from “The Artist’s Way."


The exercise invites you to make a list of the things you love to do and then do one of those things each week. I took “The Artist’s Way” class when I turned 40 and did this artist’s date exercise for the first time. At first, I struggled with making my artist’s date list, but once you get started and become more aware of the things that make your heart sing, the list become easier to create. It’s a great list to revisit over time as a ritual for the New Year, the New Moon, or a happier and mentally healthier you.


Here is a link with 101 examples of “Artist Dates” to inspire you.


Have a great weekend.


With love,

Marta
