Mental Chatter

We all talk to ourselves. For better or worse, our “chatter” or self-talk can have a profound impact on our moods, relationships, and confidence. It’s easy to operate on auto-pilot and let these thoughts come and go. But in my conversation with Ethan Kross today, he gives us tools to pump the brakes and shift our self-talk so that it works for us rather than against us. Ethan’s is the author of the bestselling book Chatter: The Voice in Our Head and Why it Matters. He’s also a professor and researcher out of the University of Michigan.
