    SEL Tip of the Week:  We can shape our self-talk
    We all have self-talk. Fortunately, we, and our students, can learn to shape what that self-talk is.  As we go about our daily lives, we are constantly interpreting the situations in which we find ourselves. Psychologists call this inner voice “self-talk,” and it includes our conscious thoughts as well as our unconscious assumptions or beliefs. Sometimes our self-talk is helpful and reasonable, however, our self-talk can also be negative, unrealistic or self-defeating. But with practice, we – and our ​students – can learn to notice our own negative self-talk as it happens, and we can consciously change it.  Click here for positive self-talk strategies.
