1) Practice recognizing negative self-talk in the moment, so you can make a positive mental change.
2) Focus on creating the life you want vs. competing with others.
3) Turn to friends, family or anyone who lifts you up when feeling down instead of turning to social media.
4) Tailor your social media feeds toward positivity, follow people that make you feel good not people who fuel negative self-talk and self-consciousness.
