It turns out the most important conversations are the ones we have with ourselves.

But if you’re not mindful, the discussion in your head can turn into “chatter”. That’s when your self-talk goes sideways and turns into endless anxiety-provoking worry. It’s the dark side of our inner voice that can poison our relationships, health, and well-being.

So how can you notice when your self-talk turns into chatter? Is there a way to stop the mental hamster wheel?

My guest, award-winning professor, and writer, Ethan Kross is here to help us find out. He spent years examining the voice that speaks inside our heads. Tune in as he explains why it’s there and reveals how you can learn to rely on it rather than being broken by it.
