Birch Talks: Raising Your Self-Worth with Kindness

Wednesday 16th February: 6pm

1 hour long (approx.)

Why is it so difficult to speak to ourselves like we would do those around us? How often do you judge yourself, compare yourself or wish you were someone else? If you don’t believe in yourself, why would you expect others to? The words we say to ourselves shape our attention, which controls our emotions, and the result is confidence – or lack of it.

When we believe in ourselves and anticipate something going well, our brain releases a neurotransmitter called dopamine, the chemical messenger that fuels reward and pleasure deep in the centre of the brain. So feeling confident about your decisions or who you are, activates reward networks in the brain, while lack of confidence and doubt lead to increased anxiety.

The belief that you can do something therefore not only motivates you to do that thing, it also lifts your mood and lowers your anxiety.

We spend more time in our head than we do with others so imagine what you could do if you believed in yourself? In this talk you will learn ways to become more aware of the stories you keep telling yourself, how to reframe those stories so you can get out of your head and into your power.
