Download the Chatter Toolbox

Chatter is a common problem that many people experience: We try to think through our problems logically but our minds run amok instead. We focus our attention inward, hoping to tap into our inner coach, but find our inner critic. Fortunately, science-based tools exist to help people resolve the tension between getting caught in negative thought spirals and thinking clearly and constructively. Scientists have identified how these tools work in isolation. But different tools work for different people in different situations. The challenge for you is to figure out which combination of these practices works best when you find yourself getting stuck.

The 10 Chatter Tools in this toolbox represent a small sample of the techniques you can use to help quiet your mental chatter—and hopefully harness it to make your inner voice work for you rather than against you.
