Thinking is an action of using one’s mind, to produce and form an idea. That idea which makes you work into the actions. Thinking includes maging, remembering, problem solving, daydreaming, free association and concept formation.  Brain is actually thinking all the time even when you may not realize it. When we think, this is what happens: neurons are sending the signals and communicating with another part of the brain or even another part of the body. 



Thinking have different ways-

(self talk)-hearing our voice in our head 

(imagining)-to seeing picture in our minds

(remembering)-an old memory 

(feeling)-a strong emotion such as happiness and sadness. 

People have inner monologues which are shaped by their conscious and unconscious thoughts, feelings and beliefs. These monologues are known as Self Talk. 

The tone of our self-talk can vary. It can be positive, optimistic and helpful. Or it can be negative, distressing, defeatist and inhibiting. 

Why? self-talk matters

Some people believe they can credit their success to having a strong inner voice. In some cases, even a critical inner voice can push individuals to achieve by raising awareness of internal and external obstacles to achievement. Over time, though, that type of self-talk takes a toll on one’s confidence, fostering shame and limiting personal growth. When we talk through our thoughts, it helps in detangling our racing thoughts and focus in a better manner. Self -talk is important because It helps us achieve our goals. We start prioritizing things and appreciating yourself, when you get to your goals. 

When we talk we have an opinion in our mind- talking loud to yourself can make people release their reality that can help them to solve certain problems and it helps to work on thoughts. This concept is known as self explaining. 


Parents can help kids to understand the importance of self-talk- as we know kids are more prone towards asking too many questions, at any point of time. Questions have been formed inside the brain that make us curious to know how it works, what it means and why it exists. To make them aware about the thinking and process of how thoughts are connected can make us understand certain things directly inside our mind. Parents can introduce them about what is thinking, what is positive and negative thinking. How thinking can dominate yourself to make decisions and solve problems. They also can learn how to reframe their thinking and focus on their strengths or the lessons they have learned from the challenges.

How to Empower Your Kids - Teaching your kids how to engage in positive self-talk, might feel a little awkward at first. But, this is completely normal. your child is learning a new coping skill and it is challenging for their brain (and yours) to reframe thoughts. With practice and consistency, though, you both will master this vital skill.

What? are the benefits of self-talk- following ways can help you through self-talk:-

Reflection- Talking to yourself can be a useful way to gain some distance from your own experiences. It allows you to reflect on the things that are happening in your life

Motivation- Talking to yourself can also be motivating. Consider the times you've hyped yourself up to face a challenge by telling yourself "I can do this" or "You've got this."

Better memory-  by talking to themselves, we  improved our memory and created a stronger association between the words they were saying and the visual targets they were seeking.

Problem solving- Talking to yourself can also be a way to work through problems we might be facing. This tactic, known as self-explaining, can help people monitor their progress and improve their performance as they work through a problem.
