Ditch the tough talk; it won't help. Whether it's competing in sports, delivering a presentation at work or cooking for guests and family, we've all heard that voice in our head telling us to "get on with it", or more likely, "don't fuck this up." Even though most of us know tough talk doesn't really help, why do we do it, and what can we cultivate in its absence? Josephine Perry — a chartered sport and exercise psychologist — proposes a viable alternative in mental flexibility. In Psyche Magazine, she shares some interesting findings and practical tips so that we too can learn to handle whatever comes our way. Feel wiser and more fulfilled on your walks with Curio's life hack audio guides from Psyche magazine. Perfect for taking time out for yourself and making the most of your walking time, with new episodes released every Wednesday.
