Positive and Negative Self Talk Worksheets

We often keep an inner dialogue with ourselves that keeps tabs on how we are doing and can be used to motivate or deter us. Depending one how we pose this dialogue to ourselves regularly can affect our short term and eventually long-term mental health. Positive self-talk is the form that we use to motivate ourselves such as, “I’m doing a great job!” or “Even though I may not be the best, I get better every day.” Negative self-talk goes in the opposite direction where we question why we are doing something because feel an impending doom or failure. Sticking with positives to any situation is always a much better choice for our own wellbeing. These worksheets will help students explore both avenues of self-talk and help them make better choices.
