Phrases to Redirect Thoughts When You're in a Funk

Often what we say to ourselves when things aren't going well can be quite negative and degrading. You missed a call with a friend, you didn't follow through on a workout, or you ate when you weren't hungry and the volume on your negative thoughts get turned up.


The flow of your day can get thrown off and leave you feeling deflated and wondering how you can take back the unkind self-talk and shift the energy to a more positive one.


It all starts with your thoughts! What are the phrases and stories you say when you're in a funk? Before you can make the next move, like breathing for 10 seconds and having a glass of water, you have to think it first.
