It's a beautiful day so I've come outside to give you a confidence building exercise on getting out of your head. Now, the reason why getting out of your head is important is that we spend a lot of time doing a lot of analytical thinking, we often tend to have very analytical thinking jobs that get us really stuck in our head and we just completely lose touch with what's going on around us.

So the point of this exercise is to practice actually paying more attention to what's going on around you, and that's what gets you out of your head. So I've nicked this exercise from my acting class and I'm going to show you how it goes.

So basically what you want to do as you go about your daily life is to just wander along and notice everything around you and call it in your internal self-talk. So, for instance, we've got trees, grass, concrete path, plants, trees, leaves, cars, tree, grass, tree, car, concrete path, garbage bins, sign, light post, rock, path, grass. You want to call everything as fast as you can, and do this for 10 minutes a day and you'll notice gradually your internal self-talk getting softer.

Grass, rocks, tree, car, path, plant, wall. Go do it.
