How to Stop Blushing by Thinking Positively
The messages you give to yourself have a strong impact on how you feel. If you’re telling yourself that you’re going to blush, then guess what? You will.
New self talk
Firstly what you say to yourself becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. In order to stop blushing begin recognising your internal dialogue. And making a conscious decision to change it. Furthermore, talking to yourself in a reassuring way. Thus bringing about positive changes at an unconscious level. As a result stopping you from getting nervous and going red.
Instead of telling yourself “I’m going to blush and stutter my words in the meeting” Tell yourself “I can cope and I’m going to focus on people in the group, not myself”
Whenever you’re hearing yourself saying negative things related to yur blushing, consciously say the word STOP. Reminding yourself regularly that you’re in control. By confronting the problem head on, beginning to feel more empowered. In short remaining cool and calm, whatever the situation.
Before a difficult situation using these affirmations:
- I can stay cool and calm
- I can think rationally
- I believe in myself
Ways of preparing yourself in case you blush:
- I can handle this challenge
- I can hold my authority
- I don’t care what other people think.
- I am getting better
- I can and I will overcome this problem
- I am proud of myself
Constant practice of positive affirmations will help overcoming blushing and building new self confidence.
In conclusion, sometimes it’s difficult to break the old routine. As well as changing your internal dialogue. However a few sessions with Alix can help develop a new way of thinking. And this is all it takes to stop blushing.
