Self-talk is the voice inside my head, telling me what I can and can't do. Like Henry Ford said: "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't – you're right." I'm in control of that voice and have to train it to be positive, like a skill. Having positive self-talk has many health benefits:
★ Increased life span
★ Lower rates of depression
★ Lower levels of distress
★ Greater resistance to the common cold
★ Better psychological and physical well-being
★ Better cardiovascular health and reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease
★ Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress
The first step in training myself to become more positive is becoming aware of my thoughts and beliefs.

The Walk of Growth Podcast
Three years ago, I felt stuck. Not knowing what I was getting myself into, I decided to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. During three months, I completed 1,100 miles of trail in three states. Walking alone for hours on end gave me a lot of time to think, and it showed me what’s important to me. Personal growth, relationships, and health became my core values. This journey has gotten me to almost unbearable lows and incredible highs I couldn’t have imagined three years ago. It has also made me confident to share my stories, the mistakes I’ve made, and the lessons I’ve learned. I hope to bring more mindfulness, inspiration, and motivation to everyone around me by being authentically myself.
